The game may have gone through one too many name changes, but it appears the gameplay is just what the doctor ordered. Simple, back to basics, Tetris with up to 6-player multiplayer over Xbox Live. Local 4-player, as well. Tetris in its pure form. Finally.
And if you are wondering why in the world it would be called Splash -- it has "beautiful aquatic backscapes add a real splash to the fun of Tetris."
Three modes included: Tetris, T-spin, and Combo. Play solo, cooperatively, or competitively. Missing anything you wanted out of an XBLA Tetris?

After a long silence we're proud to announce today contestants on the ESRB show.
In the red corner, weighing in with more rumored name changes than actual game details. It's a good game for the whole family with a rating of E. Once, it was called Tetris Splash...then Tetris Online...but now we're proud to announce the actual definitive title is...Tetris Splash. (Don't you just love a good anti-climax?)
And in the blue corner, weighing in with 33 characters including that pesky colon. It's as simple and addictive as Bejeweled and has nearly as many orcs as World of Warcraft (not really). It garnered a risque rating of E10+ for some seriously suggestive themes. It's...Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords.
It will be a heated open-ended fight to see which game will actually be released in a reasonable amount of time. My money is on both fighters passing out from
cert heat exhaustion and taking months to recover. Hopefully I am wrong.
