Tetris Game 25th Anniversary

I love Tetris the game and was pleasantly surprised that the video game will be today marking its 25 anniversary.Interestingly you can play tetris online at the Tetris website which today has a unique front indicating the 25Th anniversary.The game which requires you to arrange falling breaks in a set order was created by Alexey Pajitnov on 6th June, 1984 and became an instant hit.

I basically have been playing the handheld game since my primary education (i played it on game boy)and have one at my computer at home for passing time. That in itself illustrates the popularity of the game as it was readily available even in Kenya a developing country as early as then.The game is rather addictive due to its simplicity and yet rising sophistication as many of us would testify.P.C.Worlds online magazine have a nice feature article on the same!Its quite interesting how alexy conjured up the name....for details you can read up at wikipedia
