Tetris, Running On A Tiny LCD

Video: Besides Doom, Tetris is one game that gets all kinds of silly ports all the time. Enthusiast Numeric compressed the game into a 10×16 frame and made it work on a very tiny character display.

Life Is Hard When You're The Worst Tetris Block

Let’s be real here — you’re playing Tetris. You’re waiting for that block. That straight line block. You’re gonna get that Tetris, you’ve worked hard for it. You’ve waited a long time for this moment.

The one of those goddamn blocks come — you know the type. Two layers of two, offset. Screwing up your plans. Goddamnit.

Alexey Pajitnov’s falling-block puzzler captures the pleasure and the vacuousness of virtual labour. Each game of Tetris contains an interactive “Ozymandias”, a fruitless quest to build something that will outlast the lone and level sands. Look on my tetrominoes, and despair.

Someone Outside Of Japan Finally Became A Tetris Grandmaster

Kevin Birrell dazzled the world with his Tetris skills a few weeks back, but for the truly dedicated, the work never ends. Birrell had yet another goal for himself in Tetris: The Grandmaster 3: become the first player outside of Japan to achieve grandmaster status.
