Tetris Classic – a puzzle video game, a clone of Tetris created for MS-DOS by Spectrum HoloByte.
TETRIS was invented by a Soviet researcher named Alexey Pajitnov who worked at the Computer Centre of the former USSR Academy of Sciences, which licensed the commercial rights to Electronorgtechnica (Elorg) in Moscow. The original programmer was Vadim Gerasimov, a student studying Computer Informatics at Moscow University.
Simple to learn and infinitely variable, it has challenged people by the hundreds of thousands. And now it will challenge you to a game of speed and maneuvering. As the four-square pieces tumble from the top of the screen into an empty pit, it’s up to you to rotate them into a position which leaves no gaps in the layers at the bottom. Once aligned, you can drop the pieces into place and increase your score.
The tension escalates as you close the gaps in a layer across the bottom of the pit and the line disappears. But the more successful you are, the harder the game becomes; when a set number of lines disappear, the four-square pieces fall at a faster rate! There are ten levels to continually challenge your mastery of this perplexing game.
TETRIS is different every time you play. We know you’ll find it provocative, fun and absolutely addictive, as so many thousands have done before you. And now, TETRIS CLASSIC brings new improvements to the world’s favorite computer game.
