Tetris wasn't hard enough on its own

Tetris plus Minesweeper = Tetrisweeper. A moves left, D moves right, W and E rotate, S drops. Click to uncover, shift-click to flag. (SLFlash)

The Princess is a Lie....You Monster.

Mari0 is a Super Mario Bros and Portal mashup currently under development. Previously, the same developer made Not Tetris; a faithful reimagining of the original game, but with the addition of realistic physics and geometry.

"There's also a Katamari level where everything is just slightly bigger than you, and a Mario level with a star just out of reach."

Tetris in 2 Directions

Quad [flash] It's like Tetris without gravity. Rows erase vertically as well as horizontally, and what's left moves towards the center instead of down. [via The Ultimate Insult]

It's common knowledge that Tetris players often see the game in their dreams. Now scientists are using the game to help understand the very nature of dreams themselves. But it doesn't address the question I've always had: Why Tetris? Why doesn't this happen with Quake or Ultima or even Super Breakout?

As addictive as heroin, but without the needle tracks.

As addictive as heroin, but without the needle tracks. If you spent days on end playing tetris, don't even think about playing this game. It's too late for me, I'm already dead.

Alexey Pajitnov

Alexey Pajitnov, the creator of Tetris has had a remarkable life. He developed one of the world's most recoginizable (and mind-numbingly addictive) games - and in the process, managed to survive through all sorts of incredible bureaucratic and corporate nonesense. Speaking of corporate nonesense, he's currently an employee of Microsoft.

Every once in a while I get a bad case of 8-bit nostalgia, and I remember fondly my many hours of joy with my Nintendo Entertainment System. One of the most fun games on the NES had to be Tetris, and this history of the game is a neat read. TSR's NES Archive is another cool site dealing with the NES. Of course, the original Legend of Zelda is the best game of all time, but that's another thread entirely.
