Online version of Tetris for NES. 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...

Online emulated version of Tetris was originally developed for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), an 8-bit third-generation home video game cartridge-based console produced by Nintendo, first released in Japan as the Family Computer (commonly known as the Famicom) in 1983. The NES, a face-lifted version, was released internationally in the following years. The NES featured a number of groundbreaking games, such as the platform game Super Mario Bros, the action-adventure game The Legend of Zelda and the action game Metroid. As one of the best-selling gaming consoles of its time, the NES helped revitalize the US video game industry following the video game crash of 1983.
The game controller used for both the NES and the Famicom features an oblong brick-like design with a simple four button layout: two round buttons labeled `A` and `B`, a `START` button, and a `SELECT` button. Additionally, the controllers utilize the cross-shaped joypad, designed by Nintendo employee Gunpei Yokoi, for Nintendo Game & Watch systems, to replace the bulkier joysticks on earlier gaming consoles' controllers.
