What we have is one of the all-time computer classics...Tetris is addictive - unbelievably addictive - and it holds your attention and keeps you coming back for more...I can't quite put my finger on what makes it so incredibly addictive, but one thing's for sure - it's perfectly simple and simply perfect.

- ZZAP 64

From the blasted plains beyond the Urals comes the most remarkable computer game yet. The same minds that produce chess champions have developed a cunning game that deceives through its simplicity.

Tetris - a new world from Russia.
Tetris - a totally original concept in gaming.
Tetris - addiction is just a game away.

Play Tetris.

Getting Started

After loading, select your starting level of difficulty. The higher the number, the greater the rewards, but the harder the task.

Playing The Game

A variety of differently shaped blocks fall, one by one, from the top of the screen, or playfield. You can manipulate these shapes left/right and rotate them before they land on the bottom of the playfield.


Your aim is to create as many complete lines as possible. If you leave gaps, the playfield will fill up rapidly, leaving you less room to manoeuvre. Should the pile of blocks reach the top of the screen, the game ends.

The show key displays the shape of the block that will fall after the current block has landed - useful for formulating your optimum strategy. The rate at which the blocks fall speeds up automatically as your score increases.
