Tetris

Online version of Tetris for Arcade. Tetris is a tile-matching puzzle video game originally designed and programmed by Alexey Pajitnov in the Soviet Union on an Elektronika 60. This is the version licensed by Russian company Elektronorgtechnica (Elorg) in 1988 to Atari - arcade coin-op machines, and Nintendo - home consoles and handhelds. The game features a standard endless mode, as well as a two-player competitive mode where players race to complete each level. There is also a "cooperative" mode where both players play within the same well, working together to complete lines. Both the competitive mode and the cooperative mode can also be played with the computer...

Arcade game

Online emulated version of Tetris was originally developed as arcade game or coin-op game, a coin-operated entertainment machine typically installed in public businesses such as restaurants, bars and amusement arcades. Most arcade games are video games, pinball machines, electro-mechanical games, redemption games or merchandisers. While exact dates are debated, the golden age of arcade video games is usually defined as a period beginning sometime in the late 1970s and ending sometime in the mid-1980s.
Virtually all modern arcade games (other than the very traditional Midway-type games at county fairs) make extensive use of solid state electronics, integrated circuits and cathode-ray tube screens. In the past, coin-operated arcade video games generally used custom per-game hardware often with multiple CPUs, highly specialized sound and graphics chips, and the latest in expensive computer graphics display technology. This allowed arcade system boards to produce more complex graphics and sound than what was then possible on video game consoles or personal computers, which is no longer the case in the 2010s.

This emulation is powered by MAME (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator) project, an open-source emulator designed to recreate the hardware of arcade game systems in software on modern personal computers and other platforms. Its intention is to preserve gaming history by preventing vintage games from being lost or forgotten.
