    Awesome. Will be worth re-subscribing to online for that

    Available now. Had a couple of games this morning and its pretty good fun. As with other similar games on switch, the best players are going to get great at it fast.

    This is great! Much better than Mario 35 and, dare I say it, possibly even Tetris. It's incredibly addictive.

    I'd strongly recommend using the face buttons on your Joy Con over the d-pad of a Pro Controller. It completely eliminates any risk of turning the wrong way.

    @DangerousDave_87 I wondered this! I've been having that very issue!

    Regarding the other 99 style games, Tetris was surprisingly addictive for my obsessive, almost non stop 35 hour playtime. Mario just didn't do it for me and this, so far is excellent. I can see me playing this a lot!

    @DangerousDave_87 I tried the D-pad and it didn't work so went for the buttons from the beginning.

    I love it. Only played 4 games, but managed a win :)

    I too played Tetris 99 a fair bit, am finding this at least as good but Mario 35 didn't do it for me either. I wonder what it is about that game.

    I hate using cliches but this game is digital crack. I really liked Tetris 99 but I'd argue this is even better.

    Well played. My best is 3rd, in about 30 games. Haha

    @DangerousDave_87 I have come 2nd and 3rd a lot, my tactics are pretty filthy but hey a win's a win, right? :)

    I set it to KO and just try and drain the clock as much as I can. Leave collecting power pellets until your current one is just about to run out. Don't go for fruit until you absolutely have to and you've almost cleared the board - almost because I don't collect every dot. My thinking being that each time you collect fruit or clear the board the speed goes up, so by the time you get to the end it can still be fairly sedate for me while everyone else is flapping around at max speed.

    I just won again :D
