Title: Let's Compare Tetris!
Post by: TrekMD on November 23, 2013, 14:40:08 PM
OK, here is one very long video comparison of the classic puzzle game Tetris!  This video has 44 different versions of the game, including more than one arcade version!  Ready for some tetriminos?

I don't think there is a single system that this hasn't appeared on in one form or another, be it a clone or official version!

Here is the homebrew Lynx version which isn't in this video:

I wonder if they missed the Lynx version or were simply tired of adding versions to the video!  After all, the video is over an hour long!

Another version they left out was Chetiry for the 2600!  One of the newest homebrew versions for the system.

They also completely missed out the Atari ST, which got 2 official versions (UK and US) as well as a ton of clones like the excellent Teserae:
