Not sure about you, dear reader, but your humble writer spent quite a bit of time in the Eighties playing Tetris.
…And, come to think of it, I spent most of the Nineties playing Tetris too. Whoops.
Modern games have nothing
on Tetris. Though the graphics were awful and the music was tinny – it was pretty much THE most addictive game ever. The blocks tumbling down the screen; the way they get faster and faster, the feeling of stress as the tower of blocks becomes higher and higher…! I know games these days are all fancy and massively-multiplayer and stuff, but I just wish they’d bring back Tetris...
If you miss playing Tetris just as much as I do…here’s the answer! Paladone’s new collection of Tetris-inspired goodies should
be enough to satisfy your longings to return to the good old days of Tetris. For a while, at least.
Befuddle your Gen Y colleagues, with the Tetris Desk Tidy Set. This set brings Tetris out of the screen and into your workplace, with seven colourful Tetris blocks that are designed to liven up even the dullest desk. Each of the blocks contains a secret – the yellow square is a sticky tape dispenser, the purple, J-shaped square is filled with rubber bands and Tetris block-shaped paperclips! This colourful set is everything you need to keep yourself entertained at work…until it’s time to rush home and desperately rummage through cupboards trying to find your old Commodore 64…
Tetris is back, comrades! Honestly, did it ever really go away…?
