Tetris Game on Everywhere
You know you've been playing too much Tetris when you start seeing coloured, falling blocks when you're away from the computer. This is what happens when everyone’s favorite Russian puzzle game invades ordinary life…I can almost hear that infamous background music drilling a hole in my brain. Beware…Tetris is coming for you.
Tetris is a puzzle video game originally designed and programmed by Alexey Pajitnov in the Soviet Union. It was released on June 6, 1984,while he was working for the Dorodnicyn Computing Centre of the Academy of Science of the USSR in Moscow. He derived its name from the Greek numerical prefixtetra- (all of the game's pieces, known as Tetrominoes, contain four segments) and tennis, Pajitnov's favorite sport.
