Description

The original commercially-licensed version of Alexey Pajitnov's classic Tetris puzzle game. Geometric shapes fall from the top of a playfield to rest on the bottom; fit the pieces together, and the line they form disappears. If the pieces don't form lines and eventually stack up to the top of the playfield, the game is over. Difficulty increases by dropping the pieces faster and faster over time.

Reviewer: Anders Feder - favoritefavoritefavorite - January 20, 2015
Subject: Error There appears to be an error in this entry. The present version of Tetris is the one released by British software house Andromeda, not Spectrum Holobyte. The one by Spectrum Holobyte, which was more widespread, had dazzling background graphics depicting various Russia-related scenes.
