Although at first glance this game might look just like another Tetris clone, it is not. As a matter of fact, it is the original! Alexei Pajitnov, the "inventor" of Tetris as we know it today returns 7 years after the original was first published and brings us a better, more feature rich version.

This was the first Tetris game that came with multiple game modes. You can choose between single player, cooperative, competitive, dual pit, and even head to head mode that allows you to play over the network.

The moment you start the game you will see a wonderful background that represents a historic Russian character or a historic Russian building. Each of these backgrounds are like a piece of art and each level of the game has its own. If soothing backgrounds aren’t enough for you, rest assured that the music is just as enjoyable. As you might have guessed by now, it has Russian roots as well.

There is a wide range of options at your disposal using which you can fine tune the way that the blocks fall down, the available game time, speed etc … So, if you are one of the Tetris fans or someone that enjoys classic games, this fantastic game should not be missed!
