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.

    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.

    You move the Tetris piece over to where you want it, and there you go
    .

    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
    .

    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.

    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.

    .
    However, it can be fairly addictive.
