Who remembers Tetris?
For those of you who are too young this name doesn’t sound familiar. But this gadget for kids and we can freely say adults was one of the most popular things three decades ago.
Maybe you didn’t know but this gadget became first toy (or something that has to do with entertainment) that was exported from the Soviet Union to the United States. When Tetris came out people went crazy and it seemed like every single person in this world wanted to have one.
Even though this gadget was actually created for children, their parents were excited about it as much as their kids.
It may seem like Tetris is not as famous as it was before, and that is true, but it definitely didn’t vanish and you can still find it on different gaming platforms, mobile phones and PC, which means that it did leave a trace.
Maybe our kids don’t find it so amusing like we did, but what is definitely true is that it is still relevant and it will remain one of the most popular and most iconic games in the world.
Alexey Pajitnov is a developer of Tetris and we are quite sure that even though he expected a success, he probably didn’t think that it will be as successful as it was and is today. And what is even more surprising is that we have so many different video games, more demanding, with better graphics and dynamics, yet Tetris managed to survive that competition and remains popular.
