Tetris turns 30 years old!

Tetris, one of the world's most well-known games is celebrating it's 30th anniversary this week! Click the picture above to view the link.

Developed in Russia by programmer Alexey Pajitnov in 1984, it only reached the UK in 1986. Tetris really took off in 1989 when the Gameboy version was released.

I bought the Mirrorsoft version for the ZX Spectrum back in 1989 and have fond memories of loading the game up time after time trying to beat my high score. 

Tetris sold extremely well on the Nintendo Gameboy, and total sales overall were over 170 million copies.
