Who has not had a round of Tetris until today in any of its many iterations? If you answered that particular question with a resounding “Yes”, then I would say that it is a very, very sad thing. After all, this block puzzler has long kept folks entertained over the years in its different formats, but the arcade original is what made the game so famous. EA Mobile has decided to work with Blue Planet Software in order to deliver Tetris (at long last) to the Android platform, and to top off this piece of news, it will be made available to the masses for free. Yes, that’s right, you need not fork out a single cent for this puppy.
Here is a little bit of trivia about Tetris – it remains one of the most played video games in the world, where you can select from 50 different platforms across 185 countries, so for a free version on the Android operating system to appear, it would mean many more millions will be able to get their line clearing addiction out of the way.
This particular new free version will deliver improved visuals as well as a marathon mode for those who feel that they are a maestro of L- and S-shaped blocks, where touchscreen controls will obviously be used to help you manipulate those bricks into submission. You can also track your high score and pit it against other people online, of course.
