Classic game: Tetris

Tetris is a very popular electronic game in the world, developed in 1984 by three Russian people.

Tetris was one of the first items of export success of the Soviet Union and one of the first to be seen as a kind of addiction. Reached an audience unprecedented in the history of video games ..

Alexey Pajitnov (one of the inventors) met the puzzle Pentomino and decided to create a virtual version of it to your computer, the Electronica 60. Removed one of the blocks of the game and named with the suffix four Greek: Tetris.

The game consists of stacking teraminos (figures constituted by squares) that go down the screen in order to complete horizontal lines. When a line is formed, it disappears from the screen, the upper layers down, and you win points. When the stack of pieces reaches the top of the screen, the game is finalized.

Pajitnov's game saw the potential for failing to stop playing before you even finish the program as well as two co-workers who helped to end the game and all colleagues of the computer center, which had received copies on floppy disks written by the Pajitnov . Not to be accused of undermining the researchers in electronic hobby, destroyed all the records at the end of the day. However, the game continued to be distributed in an informal way, to reach people interested in marketing it.

This a beautiful game, which takes up no more space to spend a good bit of time.
