It's most likely you've come to play Tetris® through many hours of button-prodding on the Nintendo Game Boy. But the real hero is inventor Alexey Pajitnov, a Russian genius with a fixation for puzzles and an affinity with beards. And N-Blox is my tribute.
Here's how you play Tetris. Shaped blocks (called tetrominoes) fall into a pit where you need to arrange them so they form a complete horizontal line. Once a line without gaps is created, it disappears and the blocks above fall down. The more lines you create simultaneously, the more you score.
N-Blox has the option to play along with the classic Game Boy theme tune. Press the T key to listen in. Also, if you find the keys a little slow to respond, press the K key to speed things up.
And remember to take a break every few hours or your eyes will actually go square.
