In Europe we know it as Tetris, in Japan it is called テ ト リ ス and in Russia Тетрис. Ultimately, to recognize this famous game, you don't even need to know its name.
Just see the typical geometric blocks fall off the edge top of the screen a Game Boy (the console that made this video game famous) to immediately understand what we are talking about. Tetris was created in 1985 by Alexey Pajitnov but it was in the early 90s that it became a cult title, an icon, almost a real drug among teenagers of the time.
Imitated in a thousand versions and in a thousand ways, still today Tetris for the portable console at home Nintendo remains unsurpassed and super charming. To fully enjoy it, here are some secrets and a couple of not bad bonus skits.
PLAY AT HIGHER SPEED
When you are on the main screen, press the DOWN arrow while pressing Start to start the game. The speed of the game will thus be increased by 10 levels.
SEE A ROCKET STARTING
If you finish GAME A mode with 100.000 or more points, you will see an animation of a rocket taking off.
SEE RUSSIAN DANCERS
If you want to see a group of typical Russian dancers, you need to be able to complete level 9 in GAME B mode.
CASUALITY OF FALLING BLOCKS
Every time you flip a block, the game takes it into account. The more you turn a type of block, the more the system will believe that you are having difficulty with that block, proposing it more frequently.
