You know you've played this game at some point in your life, but this is the original. At least for me. Tetris, the first one, was my first Tetris game and I've been hooked ever since. Does anyone else have an addiction to this game like I do? I know some people get bored with it after so long.

I can play it every once in a while, but after 15-20 minutes I have to stop. Just thinking about that game gets that damn song stuck in my head. I'll be singing it all night. Thanks a lot, Vez.

Yes, I have played it, bit not the GB version... I had the NES (nintendo) version, yes there was another... one released by Tengen, but it was a unlicenced game

It's also worth a lot of money because it was pulled from the shelves. You don't see a lot of people trying to pass of unlicensed games anymore, it used to be really big back then. I know I can still play that game for hours, though.

i have 2 copies of the original. and i used to keep a high score chart but have no clue where it is [ it was just a post-it note with my scores ]. but i know i've gotten more than 100k cause that's what activated the rocket when you got gameover.

I never really liked it. I remember playing it as a kid and I got bored pretty quick.

Tetris is actually good for alot of things... I have used it many times, for packing, and moving mostly, but it still comes in handy...

Tetris is one of the only games I can think of that exposes gamers to classical music. Tchaikovsky's "Dance of the sugar plum fairy" was the theme song for the original Tetris. :) I have loved that song ever since!

i think it's theme B, it's "the russian drinking song" and i love the song so much that i learned how to play it on the bass. {=\

I haven't played it forever so I don't know. Its the slower paced song. It's hard to describe... I am pretty sure it's theme A, but somebody who knows the song, and has the game would have to confirm.
