Description
The name Tetris originated from the Greek word Tetra – meaning four. Tetris upon its release had a huge impact on the gaming industry, and is constantly being quoted as one of the top five video games of all time. Today 23 years after its original release, Tetris still is one of the most played video games on the market. The History of Tetris: Tetrominoes at The Ready First released in the U.S.S.R in 1985, and developed and programmed by Alexey Pajitnov at the Academy of Science in Moscow. Tetris is single or multi-player puzzle game, that is believed can lead to very positive brain activity. During play, the object of the game was simply to rotate the various shaped falling blocks or tetrominoes are they are known to form an horizontal line without there being any gaps. As soon as a line was formed it would disappear, earning the player points. The more lines that would disappear simultaneously, the more points would be earned. If the player failed to make any lines, the falling blocks would simply stack on top of one another. The game would end when the screen became full with blocks. The fact that the tetrominoes were of various shapes, made the game difficult to master, the player would have to develop a strategy to become successful. The game manual referred to the tetrominoes as letters, these were in alphabetical order; I, J, L, O, S, T and Z. Each shape was made out of four blocks.
