This is one of the best Tetris-clone games released in 1990 as a freeware for the Sam Coupe home computer.
 
Review
TetrisSTORY / GAMEPLAY
As it is understandable, there's no actual story on a Tetris game. Also, there's not much to say about the gameplay as it's a rather typical Tetris-style game. All you have to do is to stay sharp, be quick and match the dropping pieces creating a horizontal line of ten blocks without leaving any gaps, without letting the screen to overflow with blocks.

GRAPHICS / SOUND
The game offers a very decent in-game music and digitized pictures on the background graphics. You have the option to disable the background pictures in case they are hard to the eye; so you can play in a black background (a feature that some people find it particularly useful and less confusing). Fortunately the game uses digitized background pictures in gray scale (so there's no confusion with the colored moving blocks).

OVERALL
As all Tetris (and Tetris-clone) games, this version is very addictive and it needs some nice practice to think fast where to place the next block coming.
