New MobyGoal! We're aiming for 1,500 well documented Arcade games.

Genre: Falling block puzzle

Group Description

Tetris can be seen as the mother of all falling block puzzles, but the concept has since been cloned, expanded and stretched a whole lot, with notable examples being Dr. Mario, Puyo Puyo and Columns. Games centred around putting together falling pieces into particular patterns, thereby eliminating them, fit into this group.
