Happy Birthday Tetris [News]
posted June 6 2014 8:14.30 by spic0m




Today the most famous game gets 30!

Tetris was designed and programmed by Alexey Pajitnov, who released the game throughout the USSR in 1984. The game launched on the Elektronika 60, a terminal computer developed in the Soviet Union, before eventually coming to IBM PC systems, arcades, Game Boy and nearly every other games platform since. The title has since sold over 170 million copies, both digital and physical.

The most recognizable imagery from Tetris is a tetromino: a geometric shape composed of four squares, connected orthogonally.
