Simple But Extremely Addictive – Tetris 

Whilst working at the Computer Center in Moscow, Russian engineer, Alexey Pajitnov, created what would later become one of the most popular video games of all time. The game pieces in Tetris are called “Tetriminos” and are geometric shapes composed of four square blocks each, the objective of the game are to manipulate these pieces, by either rotating it by 90 degrees and moving them sideways. The user must aim to create a horizontal line of ten units without gaps, which will make the line disappear and if the user clears a certain amount of lines the game will enter a new level.

Sounds complicated? It really isn’t, take a look at a video example below:

Nintendo eventually got hold of Tetris and in 1989, brought it to the handheld gaming console, Gameboy.
