The old time fun game of Tetris is now available online on your home computer. Tetris can be played on Arcadeonline.com. This game involves skill and strategically placed bricks. The bricks are colored differently so that recognizing what pieces are is easier.
Tetris involves using each brick as a whole. It is the extreme puzzle game. This game lets you customize the game with choices about how many lines to start with and what type of bricks you wish to play with. This can include the traditional square look, circle, stars, a circle within a circle, a hollowed out square, and one that looks like a cinnamon roll type shape. The bricks look the same; it is the inside of them that looks different. You can also slow down how fast the bricks fall. The good thing about Tetris is that it shows you what brick is coming down next. This helps to create a game plan on where you want to put each individual brick. This online version gives you the option to activate special brick formations, including a single brick.
The controls on Tetris are easy to use. Each arrow on your keyboard has a function. The left and right arrows are self explanatory, while the up arrow will rotate the brick and the down arrow brings the bricks brings them down at a faster rate than if you just let them fall. Rows of bricks that will disappear once you reach that number can be customized. You can set them with as little as 10 rows or as much as 40 for the more advanced player. When you have the bricks stacked up high more than likely a line brick that is 4 single bricks stacked high will be next. Use this brick piece on a side that you have built up that looks like it was made just for that piece. This will boost your score and the rows that you have built will disappear and allow you to start building up the bricks into rows again. Tetris is a puzzle and the bricks should be pieced together in that way for you to obtain the maximum points possible. The strategy to Tetris is to build up the puzzle and high as you can without running out of room and then, in one magical move, a lot of rows disappear.
