TetriWar is a game based on tetris from 1 to 4 people. The player uses the main board to play and can see his/her opponents’ game on the auxiliary boards.
The game consists of 7 pieces in a geometrical form (with the form of I, O, J, L, S, Z y T) made up of 4 connected blocks. A random piece falls down from the superior part each time. The player must control it and fit it to the ones on the board. When a horizontal and sequential line of blocks is formed, the line is completed and it disappears.
Aim of the game
The aim of the game is to score more points than your opponents during the time established. The points are scored by placing pieces and lines. The higher the level of difficulty, the higher the points (the highest level is 10).
- 1 line:
10 points multiplied by the number of level you have.
- 2 lines:
25 points multiplied by every level.
- 3 lines:
40 points multiplied by every level.
- 4 lines:
60 points multiplied by every level.
- For every piece placed:
1 point multiplied by the level.
For example, if 3 lines are made all at once on the level 6, I will score
If you are eliminated during the game, you will keep on playing, although you will start again from the level 1 (or from the original level).
If you play in pairs, the points of both players are scored to get the result.
If you play with the option of bombs enabled, every time a line is completed, a bomb will appear in the game area. The player can catch the bomb if he/she eliminates the line where it is and drop it over his/her opponents (or over himself/herself). The bombs can be accumulated to drop several of them all at once.
- In manual mode, the player can decide when and over whom to drop the bombs. See game controls below.
- In automatic mode, the computer will drop the bomb right after it is caught.
The bombs you receive appear on the top of the screen. The number below the bomb indicates the number of the player that dropped it.

Ranking for points
To score points, the games have to be competitive (indicated by a boxing glove or swords). There is no scoring if 2 players at the table share the same IP.
The scoring that you get depends on the position you are when the game finishes and on the number of opponents.

|Winner||10 points||15 points||20 points|
|2nd position||-5 points||0 points||5 points|
|3rd position||—||-10 points||0 points|
|4th position||—||—||-10 points|
The players that leave a game will be penalized with 20 points.
