Tetris is recognized as the most played video game in the world.

Tetris, which is currently thirty years old, is one of the video games that holds the title of "most well-known" all over the world. In the year 1984, a Soviet scientist by the name of Alexey Pajitnov was the one who initially conceived of the concept. A few years later, it was ported to the notorious Commodore 64, the very first Apple computers, and the IBM-PC, and it was made available to western audiences at that time. It did not take long until its popularity skyrocketed all across the world. In the year 1989, it was made accessible for use on the Gameboy system that was available at the time. Tetris has been the most successful video game ever in terms of sales, with over 150 million copies having been purchased since the game's initial release.

The game of Tetris doesn't call for too lot in the way of skill at all. The goal of the game is to construct towers with blocks of varied heights, which are then dropped into a hole. The blocks can be any color or shape. You have the ability to spin them in any way, and you will rack up points whenever you build a full row of blocks that are then removed from the board. The blocks can be rotated in any way you like. The goal of the game is to completely cover horizontal lines with blocks so that there are no gaps left between the rows.

Tetris was initially invented by Pajitnov as an enjoyable escape from the boredom of everyday work; nevertheless, the game was immediately repressed by Soviet authorities due to their fear that it would spread throughout the country. In contrast to the vast majority of people who work in the software industry, the Soviet scientist who came up with the idea for Tetris did not get wealthy as a result of his work on the game. Pajitnov was compelled to turn over the rights to the government when he lived under the Communists, who had made it illegal for private businesses to operate in the country.

Tetris's enduring appeal is due, in large part, to the fact that playing it allows one to take their mind off of other things that may be bothering them at the time. In contrast to most other games, this one does not require you to sit about and wait for the results. Tetris is one of those games that, as soon as you start playing it, you'll realize how addictive it is. People still take part in the activity despite the fact that it has very little instructional benefit, if any value at all.
