In a crossover like Puyo Puyo Tetris one of the hardest things is to make it all fair. When two mechanically different game systems are stacked against each other, it’s likely one will have an edge just by design. Hence the dreaded 4-wide combo from Tetris in competitive Puyo Puyo Tetris 2, though it would seem Sega has taken steps to remedy this.

 

 

A new update has arrived in PPT2, with the main adjustments being to Tetris’ game balance when in head-to-head matches (notice Puyo vs. Puyo isn’t mentioned). Now whether this does address those issues in a strong with way remains to be seen, and more casual fans may not notice the impact of these changes as acutely. Still, seeing this fantastic puzzle game get some attention again has me back to clearing lines and poppin’ blobs.
