    Between the old Game Boy days and on my mobile many years later for a second round, I have had a blast playing this game. The best puzzle game ever in my book.

    * Hums Tetris song "Korobeiniki" * =D.

    One of the greatest games and song choices, still play it on occasion and love it!

    I picked up my first copy of Tetris in an alley one day while walking through it, took it home and dusted it off... played in my Game Boy with no trouble.

    Thats why cartridges kicked ***!

    These days, I turn to emulators for such needs.
