Tetris

Tetris is a puzzle game designed and programmed by Alexey Pajitnov in June 1985, when he worked at the Dorodnicyn Computer Center at the Soviet Academy of Sciences in Moscow. Its name comes from the Greek numerical prefix tetra which means to wake up with four parts.

These games (or other variations) are found in almost every video game console and personal computer, as well as other equipment such as calculators, cellphones, portable media players, PDAs and even as a secret to non-media products such as oscilloscopes.

Although Tetris appeared mostly on home computers, the game was more successful in the Gameboy version released in 1989 which made it the most popular game of all time. On the news of the 100th Electronic Gaming Monthly, Tetris was in first place in "The Best Game of All Time". In 2007, Tetris was second in the "100 Best Games of All Time" according to the IGN.

In the game, various kinds of tetromino consisting of four blocks will fall. The aim of this game is to manipulate the falling tetromino, by moving it to the side or rotating it, so that a horizontal line will form without a gap, when it is formed, the tetromino will disappear, so that the tetromino above will fall. When the game continues, the tetromino will fall faster. The game will end when the next tetromino is blocked so it can't enter.
