2. First Person Tetris
54Share email share One of the most venerable classic games just got a clever remake with an interesting twist. In First-Person Tetris, the simple act of rotating a block actually rotates the entire screen, shifting your perspective 90 degrees and adding a whole new dimension of challenge to the 1984 puzzler by Russian engineer Alexey Pajitnov.
The game is free to play and all you need is a web browser to take up the new challenge. The simplicity of the concept and style fit very well with the minimalist aesthetic of the original game, yet cleverly extends it to present a whole new take on the classic.
And if your mind isn’t scrambled enough by the regular First-Person version, check out the even tougher “Night Mode” and let us know how long you can keep playing. Because in Soviet Russia, Tetris rotates you!
