Play Tetris on an Android Phone

Edited by Grimm, Margiebell, Eng, Jen M and 1 other

Hi you are watching VisiHow and today we are going to show you how to get the Tetris game downloaded and installed on your phone and how to start playing. For those of you unfamiliar with Tetris, it's a very old classic game that was created by a Russian programmer, and then was actually stolen by an American company which later lost the results of a lawsuit, and released the rights back to the guy, who then, licensed it back to them. So to get started, what we need to do is tap on the Google Play store icon.

    As you can see at the top I have an advertisement running

    Here comes our little Tetris guy, you can move them around, you can just choose how you want the piece to be
    .
    So if I want it to be lengthwise, then I just move it that way.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    You move the Tetris piece over to where you want it, and there you go
    .
    Let's put this one here.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    And this next one, lets put it here
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    The one touch is pretty easy, I think anyway, you just continually touch these little pieces, and let them all fall down, until you get to a point where you've made the correct set of choices in all of your blocks
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    And you don't have to play around as much as you otherwise would with some of the more complex settings
    .
    Here's another one, and you can close this little lineup.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    Now you can close another line up
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  27. 27
    When you continue doing this, you will find that you will get farther and farther along in the game
    .
    Personally, I think this is the easiest way to play Tetris.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  28. 28
    At any rate, this is how you play Tetris
    .
    You can see that your next pieces are coming up here.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  29. 29
    Here's a timer for your cycle
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  30. 30
    It's going to show you how it's going down
    .
    Your goal here is to get to level 9. So there you go, each time you tap a piece down, the timer will reset itself.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  31. 31
    There's another block dropped, very simple game
    .
    However, it can be fairly addictive.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  32. 32
