New Poll Part 2

Tetris



Tetris was created by Alexey Pajitnov in the Soviet Union and released on June 6, 1984 .  Tetris is a puzzle game consisting of random sequences of tetrominoes (shapes composed of four square blocks each) falling down the playing field.  Tetris has even been played on every conceivable console and mobile device.  But the most impressive playing field is on the sides of buildings. The record for the world’s largest working game of Tetris belongs to the Dutch students of the Delft University of Technology, who in 1995, lit up 15 floors of their Electrical Engineering Department.  Tetris is the number one selling game on the Game Boy and Game Boy Color at 35 million copies sold.  Tetris is also the number one selling game on mobile phones at over 100 million games sold.
