Web Icons Attack

Share Collapse

Author Comments

Web Icons Attack is based on the old SNES game Tetris Attack, a puzzle where you must combine the icons in a creative way to achieve high scores.

Arrow Keys or WASD for move. Space or X to change icons.
Great combinations stop time and generate more points.

This game has several errors that prevent it from being a legitimate Tetris Attack followup.

>Blocks fall INSTANTLY upon lower blocks being cleared. This largely nullifies the skill-intensive aspect of the game(skill chaining does not exist), turning it into a much slower paced game.
>Chaining does not even exist here. Even legitimate 4-chains yield no additional points. These are much harder than combos, and should certainly be counted.
>As has been mentioned before, the stack rises, initially, way too slowly . Worse, high-end combos can result in the stack being frozen for upwards of 20 seconds. There NEEDS to be a button that causes the stack to rise and ends any freeze the stack has undergone. On that subject, I wold you NOT advise rewarding players for surviving longer. The goal should be for players to push out as many points as possible as quickly as possible. You shouldn't be encouraging players to play for 30+ minutes in a single session.
>Nothing prevents newly introduced rows from having automatic three-matches, ruining any form of planning that players go through.
>Standard clears do not freeze the stack(they should pause the stack while the blocks are being removed.) This results in unbalanced gameplay during the later portions of the game, with players continuously abusing the newly introduced bottom row to continuously freeze the stack, rather than aspiring for anything greater.
>Switching blocks mid "chain" can lead to outright glitched up switches. This is not acceptable.

All of these factors coalesce together to form a Tetris Attack spinoff that is nail bitingly slow and not skill intensive at all. The music is underwhelming and has a very short loop, making it even more painful. This game needs some serious improvements, sorry.

Not Great but definitly not bad

Could use more icons and maybe some power up type things.


Starts off waaaay too slow. Great idea but should start much faster. Not challenging at all until a few minutes in.

Fun, but nothing new.

It plays well and there doesn't seem to be any glitches or timing issues. Next time you should include a Newgrounds Icon :P Or maybe even one just based on Newgrounds and it's characters.

nothing wrong could use more

its an interesting game. Not super original but not a clone either, as far as I can tell. Seemed like it was missing more features though.
