Little did we know a brand-new title would arrive a day later.
Tetris lives on with new iOS game
The new (and free!) game is classic Tetris as we’ve always known it. The gameplay will be immediately familiar to anyone who has played a traditional Tetris title in the past.
For now, it delivers single-player block-building fun. But later on, there will be “much more” to come.
“Tetris is one of the most recognizable games in the world and we’re delighted today to make that experience available for free to millions of people worldwide,” said Neil Young, founder and CEO of N3TWORK.
“We’re launching Tetris with a traditional solo gameplay mode, but we want fans to know that we’ve got so much more in store for them, and this is just the foundation of an incredible Tetris app experience.”

The new Tetris game is played using intuitive swipe controls — like those from EA. It also uses haptic feedback that’s new to mobile, and five different themes that let you switch up its look.
