Free BlackBerry Tetris Game Alternative BlockBerry

A while back we told you about a free Tetris game for BlackBerry called BBTetris. The game is a decent free alterternative to the Tetris that I believe EA has the rights to distribute for BlackBerry. The free version is now called BlockBerry, and is on version 5.78. The latest version saves your sound settings and improves the Storm experience.

Here are the OTA links for the game:

95xx Storm Version (Start the game in portrait mode. It won’t display correct if you launch it in Landscape)
9000 Bold Version
97xx(Bold2) / 96xx(Tour) / 89xx(Curve) Version
83xx(Curve) / 85xx / 88xx Version
82xx Pearl Flip Version
81xx Pearl Version

Enjoy!

Today is the first day of owning a BlackBerry Storm 2 and as with every BlackBerry, you can get apps preloaded, from App World, and from third party stores such as ours.

In general, carriers do a fairly bad job at preloading your device with applications that are useful. Alternatively, there are a ton of great apps in App World and elsewhere that anyone can download. So let’s take a look at the state of the apps for the Storm2 at launch.

EA Mobile has launched some of their best selling titles on App World recently including Bejeweled, Need for Speed Undercover, Risk, Scrabble (in the US and Canada only), Tetris, Tetris Mania, The Sims 3, and Tiger Woods PGA Tour.

If you’re thinking of buying any of these games, here is a quick review of some of the titles that I have played:

Bejeweled – Excellent casual game and easy to play on a BlackBerry. Definitely worth it!
Tetris – The original and a great purchase for a mobile game.
The Sims 3 – Not worth purchasing. The mobile version lacks any real Sims gameplay and is a cheap ripoff of the PC version.

Happy gaming!
