Description of Tetris

Edit By BS Editor: Tetris on the iPod is not the game’s first association with Apple. In the book “The Ultimate History of Video Games,” Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak reveals: “I had my name in ‘Nintendo Power Magazine’ several times for top score on Game Boy Tetris. It got to the point that they wouldn’t print my name Again, so I had to use a Fake name: Evets Kainzow.” The magazine published it, unaware it was the same person.

A member of Computer Gaming World’s Hall of Fame, Tetris may have gained many fans on home computers and video game consoles during the mid-to-late 1980s, but it exploded in popularity when it was packaged with Nintendo’s original Game Boy. Updated for the new era of portable gaming, Tetris on the iPod features beautiful color graphics, complementary sound effects, and an engaging musical soundtrack that’s an update of the original Tetris theme.

The basic gameplay, however, is what you remember: Drop seven different types of pieces, known as Tetriminos, to the bottom of the screen, stacking them so they form complete lines across the playing field. Those lines disappear, giving you room to drop more Tetriminos. The game ends when the pile reaches the top of the screen.

There are three ways to play Tetris: Marathon, the traditional method in which you try to score as many points as you can in the game’s 15 levels; 40 Lines, which challenges you to clear 40 lines from the screen as fast as possible; and Ultra, in which you Go for as high a score as possible in three minutes. The game keeps track of your greatest achievement in each mode, and when you start a new Marathon session, you can begin at any level you previously achieved.
