Work your way up from the easiest setting, or crank up the speed to increase the challenge. Either way, you’re in store for hours of entertainment--all over again!

Manual (Game Boy):
    What is Tetris?

    TETRIS is a new type if puzzle game from the Soviet Union. It's really simple to play. Seven different shaped blocks fall down from the game field one after the other. The object of the game is to keep the blocks from piling up to the top of the game field. To do this, you can move the blocks to the left and right, and rotate them as they fall. If you can completely fill in one horizontal line, that line disappears and you get points. If the blocks pile up to the top of the game field, that's the end of the game.TETRIS is simple, easy-to-understand and difficult to drag yourself away from!

    TETRIS originally came from the word "tetra" meaning the number 4. By re-arranging four squares, you can make seven different shapes which are the pieces in this game. With the GAME BOY, you can play three types of games: endurance game A, game B where you play for the highest score at the 25th line, and a 2-player game where you can connect to the another GAME BOY.
