Tetris – a Brief History

Strange but true: the game we know and love as Tetris first started out life in – of all places – the computer centre of the Soviet Academy of Sciences in 1985. It was the brainchild of a young speech recognition researcher,  Alexey Pajitnov, who had been using the Academy’s computer, an Electronica 60, to develop games as a means of socialising with colleagues.

One of those games was Tetris, whose name is a combination of “Tetra” (a nod to the fact each shape used in the game is made of four squares) and “tennis” (his favourite sport). And while the early versions of Tetris lacked a scoring system, the game quickly went viral in the USSR – after Pajitnov’s colleagues at the Academy became hooked, it quickly spread to other institutions across the Soviet Union.

The next version to be released was one for IBM PCs, which also included colour graphics and a scoring system, and it was at that point that its popularity exploded. In 1986, it spread from the USSR to other European socialist countries, such as Poland and Hungary. But it wasn’t long before it caught the attention of the booming Western games industry.

What followed was a riveting tale of steely determination vs. the Iron Curtain, as parties in both the Soviet Union and the West sought to overcome the many hurdles of bringing Tetris from the socialist East to the capitalist West, which was brilliantly told in feature-length biopic, Tetris. But despite some major challenges, they were successful – European gamers were soon able to enjoy versions for their home computers in 1987, with Tetris hitting DOS PCs in North America in 1988.

The format Tetris is most associated with, however, is the Nintendo Game Boy. Nintendo had been impressed by Tetris’ simple-yet-addictive qualities, and saw it as the perfect game to bundle with its Game Boy handheld console when it was released in the West. With the Game Boy proving to be a runaway hit, Tetris joined the pantheon of mega-gaming franchises, alongside Mario, Zelda and the like.

But while Tetris had become synonymous with Nintendo as a result, in 1996, things changed again. The Russian authorities transferred the rights to Tetris back to Pajitnov, who founded The Tetris Company. As a result, Tetris has spread far and wide, gracing everything from the latest games consoles to iPods since then.
