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
A great spin on that block game we all know and love!Reviewed By: eskayelle on 14 Dec 2020
I’ve been enjoying this particular homebrew since Matt H. put out his beta 3. The game comes with all the familiarity and enjoyable gameplay of that traditional block placement game and enhances it with the added challenge of the kraken. The pixel art and visuals are great, reminiscent of those AAA NES games from later in the life of the system.
Meanwhile, the original music score implemented by the team is just as catchy and fun as that classic game’s tracks.
QoL options, such as the hard drop, make the game nice and contemporary.
The game works well both in various emulators, as well as on the NES itself; it deserves a home in any NES aficionado’s library.
