Online Tetris games

The simplicity and brevity of this game was due to the date of its first release - 1984. That was the beginning of the computer era in the USSR and Tetris was almost the only electronic game available. But, in spite of this, it is so captivating to the player that it has remained popular for decades.

The rules of the game

Varied in shape and appearance rectangles and squares descend gradually from top to bottom of the playing field. The player can rotate the figure by turning it 90 degrees and move it horizontally, but only as long as it does not touch the bottom surface or the figures standing on it. If you immediately note the place where this figure should fit perfectly, you can speed up its fall to the moment. If you fill the entire horizontal line with fallen pieces, it disappears and everything above it falls one cell down. The speed of the falling figures increases with each level. On the side of the main field there is a hint window showing the figure that will fall next. This will allow you to plan your next move forward. The aim of the game is to earn as many points as possible, collecting horizontal rows. But be attentive, because as soon as the playing field is filled up vertically and the next piece has no place to fall, the game is over.
