Ever since Tetris was first released in 1986, there have been numerous cloning attempts. Some clones, in addition to providing the basic Tetris gameplay, also try to expand on it in some ways. Two-Tris is one such game.
As the name implies, Two-Tris is a game of Tetris that supports two players simultaneously. Two-player mode is the default setting with the screen split so each player has his or her own game of Tetris operating at the same time.
The game also has a two-player cooperative mode in which both players work on the same game together. In this mode, players take turns maneuvering alternating dropping pieces where player one handles the first and third pieces, player two the second and fourth pieces, and so forth. If no other human player is available, the gamer can choose to play a regular game of single player Tetris.
Like Tetris, gameplay in Two-Tris involves moving, rotating and dropping a series of blocks falling from the top of the screen so they form solid horizontal rows at the bottom. When a row is completed, it disappears off the screen. The game has seven different block types to represent the seven different possible shapes that can be formed when four squares are put together.
Scoring is based on the current level with different point totals awarded for the number of lines that are eliminated (by completing a row across the screen) at any given time. For example, a single line is worth a certain number of points while a Tetris (completing four lines at once) is worth much more.
The game ends when the stacks of blocks build up too high to allow any more to fall from the top of the screen. ~ Kyle Knight, All Game Guide
