Thank you Alexey Pajitnov for one of the most simplistic and yet highly addictive, replayable, games of all time
Tetris will forever be a classic of electronic gaming. My first experience of it was on the Commodore Amiga 500 - longest game in one sitting was 6 hours after which I was exhausted!
My only complaint is that the game has been pawned out far too much and many of the versions (including the recent one on XBLA) fail to inspire!
In terms of all the variants Lumines is the only game I have found to be as addictive in terms of clearing rows or blocks!
