Tetris 99 for the Nintendo Switch

A chaotic 99-player spin on Tetris. Each line you complete lets you send Garbage Blocks to other players, and vice-versa. You can make your attacks more targeted, and you gain bonuses in attack or defense as you defeat others. (Note: video contains PG-13 language.)

Tetris A: Jazz Cover

We’ve heard a number of covers of the familiar theme song from Tetris over the years, from bluegrass to dubstep, game fanatic insaneintherainmusic’s jazzy rendition is our favorite yet. Beyond the cool arrangement, the man has some serious sax skills.

Softbody Tetris

Softbody Tetris

Anyone who has every played Tetris knows that the game’s shapes are as straight-edged as they come. But animator C4D4U decided to see what the game might look like if the pieces were made out of Jell-O. We’d only wish we could play this bouncy, squishy version of the game.

Tetris: Bluegrass Rock Style

Tetris: Bluegrass Rock Style

Musician Samurai Guitarist created this unusual, but somehow just right cover version of the familiar Russian style theme song from the arcade classic, Tetris. We just wanted to shout Rawhide! at the end.

TETRIS Pranksters

Rémi Gaillard and his pals dressed up as a set of TETRIS blocks and proceeded to try and fit in wherever they could. They seem to have taken the word “block” too literally, causing traffic jams and other inconveniences along the way.

Invisible Tetris

At the video game marathon cancer fundraiser Awesome Games Done Quick, KevinDDR beat the Master Mode in Tetris: The Grandmaster 3. How hard was it? The final level (it’s at 6:20) had invisible blocks. Whuuuut.

Tetris (Trailer)

Tetris (Trailer)

It’s not a Hasbro title, but after Battleship we wouldn’t necessarily be surprised if we saw a real trailer for a blockbuster based on Tetris in the near future. Our guess? The Russians are behind it.

First-Person Tetris

First-Person Tetris

We know what you’re thinking – how can you play Tetris with guns? You don’t. But you still get to play it as if you were the brick in this crazy, dizzying, browser-based game. We still want guns, though.

Tetris x Luigi

Tetris x Luigi

We have a hard enough time keeping from all the Tetris blocks reaching the top before time runs out, but this guy has the time and patience to actually draw Luigi with his puzzle pieces. Mario here.

Heaven Tetris

Heaven Tetris

A recent XKCD strip depicted heaven as a Tetris game with a piece that fits whatever you already built. GUD magazine turned it into an actual game. Get in on the reassuring fun here.

Zelda: Ocarina of Tetris

Oliver Taylor had some a lot of time on his hands over the holidays, so he decided to work on something really, really important – playing the Tetris theme – by touch – using Link’s ocarina.

Tetris: le Film

Tetris: le Film

From the creators of PONG: The Movie, the classic arcade puzzler is back for a big blockbuster film, and this time the blocks mean business. Sure, it’s all in French, but we think you get the point.

Tetris Skateboarding

A little while back, the guys from Freebord gathered 36 riders on the streets of SFO with neon Tetris pieces strapped to their heads to create a real-life version of the classic arcade game.

Not Tetris

Not Tetris

A mod of the classic puzzle game. Instead of arranging the blocks to form lines, all you have to do is stack as many as you can. Easy right? Not with the new physics. Download the game here.

Analog Tetris

Analog Tetris

If your feeble mind can’t keep up with these newfangled digital video games, then perhaps a game of Analog Tetris is for you. You’ve gotta think quick with bricks dropped by a real live human.

Tetris Chair

Tetris Chair

Gabriel Cañas’ Tetris Chair has only been seen as a digital render, but he’s finally put the pieces together and created a prototype; it’ll be displayed at the Video Game Museum in Paris.

First Person Tetris

First Person Tetris

In Soviet Russia, Tetris block rotates you (thanks CG): we strongly suggest you take dramamine pills before playing First Person Tetris, and if that’s not available, a few shots of vodka.

Russian Cargo T-shirt

Russian Cargo T-shirt

While it’s not the first Tetris/construction t-shirt ever (scroll through the comments here), Hans Krebs’ Russian Cargo tee is by far our favorite for its neat lines and even neater blocks.

Free: Tuper Tario Tros.

Free: Tuper Tario Tros.

You’ll not only be platforming but building the platforms in Tuper Tario Tros.; it mixes Super Mario Bros. and Tetris, letting you switch between the two games by using the space bar.

Filled with tests of L-block temptations and delayed line pieces, any hopes you had that the 8-bit heavens are fair and just will disappear like a row of blocks in this God of Tetris video.

Camouflage T-shirt

Camouflage T-shirt

Available at Teextile, Wallstreet’s Camouflage t-shirt is full of win for puzzle fans; a fugitive Tetris block finds shelter, but we’re sure it’s no chip off the old block for that Rubik’s Cube.

Where Tetris Comes From

Where Tetris Comes From

It sounds like the title to a cheesy sex-ed film, but Where Tetris Comes From is a catchy little ad complete with cell-shaded graphics for South Korean gaming network Naver/NHN.

Tetris Furniture

Tetris Furniture

Diego Silverio’s Tetris Furniture concept doesn’t just resemble bricks from the classic puzzle game–the pieces have real functions, from doubling as storage to serving as a low-slung couch.
