FROM BELOW is a falling block puzzle game featuring:
Soft Drops Hard Drops Wall Kicks T-Spins Lock Delay 3 modes of play: Kraken Battle Mode
The signature mode of FROM BELOW. Battle the Kraken by clear lines across the onslaught of attacking Kraken Tentacles. The Tentacles push more blocks onto the screen every few seconds, forcing to act quickly, and strategize on an every changing board.
The classic block falling mechanics you know and love without any new gimicks. Modernize for 2020, with Hard Drops, Lock Delay, and more, making this (hopefully) the best feeling puzzle game on the NES!
Turn Based Kraken Battle Mode
Similar to “Kraken Battle Mode”, but instead of the Kraken attacking every few seconds, it advances its tentacle every time you drop a piece. Make every move count, as this move favors slow, deliberate play!
User Review Information
Tetris clone with a monstrous, modern twist!Reviewed By: Cralex on 06 Dec 2020
This would have made a fantastic licensed game back in the day. (I’m imagining what the box art would have looked like.) Picture this: you just grabbed this game cart and popped it in. You mash A to get past the options and just start the game. You are presented with fun, solid-feeling game of Tetris in a beautifully presented medieval setting.
Then you see the Kraken.
It selects a column and places a tentacle under it. Every few seconds, it’ll push up the blocks in that column by one row. Leave it alone too long and it’ll topple your column, but you can fight it back by clearing a row through its tentacle. All this time, you’re listening to epic demoscene music.
I’m no Tetris expert, but the controls feel really good. I haven’t even played the classic (no kraken) and battle (kraken makes a move every time you do) modes, but I can already tell that this game is a fantastic addition to any NES library.
