Tetris is one of the most copied video games of all time, and has been an extremely popular game (in whatever format) since it was first launched in the eighties. It was originally programmed and compiled in 1985, but after it came free with the Nintendo Gameboy in 1989, it became hugely successful. Indeed, it helped Nintendo shift 30 million units!

Tetris was a pivotal video game and there have been hundreds of different versions released ever since, for just about every video game console and home computer available. It was originally created by the Russian game designer Alexey Pajitnov.
