Tetris is a video game that was released for the first time on June 6, 1984. Designed and programmed by Alekséi Pazhitnov in the Soviet Union, its name derives from the Greek prefix tetra (four) and from tennis, Pazhitnov's favorite sport. Although different versions of Tetris, the most successful was the version for Game Boy released in 1989.
All the pieces of the game, called termines, are geometric figures made up of four square blocks joined together orthogonally. The original version has 7 different pieces of different colors. These pieces will be generated in the upper part of the playing area and will descend little by little through it. The player cannot prevent this fall, but can decide the rotation of the piece (0°, 90°, 180°, 270°) and in which place it should fall, moving it to the right or to the left of the playing area.
Each horizontal line that is completed disappears and the pieces that are on top are lowered one position. In this way, space will be freed on the board, which will facilitate the placement of the new pieces that are generated. The rate of falling of the pieces will accelerate as the game progresses. The game of Tetris ends when the pieces are stacked on top of each other to prevent the generation of new ones.
