This free Tetris online is a cool variation of the classic Tetris game. Regularly playing Tetris has been shown to increase brain efficiency.
To begin, click the Small, Medium, or Large link under the picture at left. This opens the game in a pop-up window.
The object of this free Tetris online game (like with all Tetris games) is to stack the falling blocks in such a way as to leave no gaps.
Each time you complete a row, that row disappears and the overall level of the blocks falls.
HOW TO PLAY. As you play, the blocks start falling faster. You lose once the blocks reach the top of the game screen.
GAME CONTROLS. Click the "START!" button to begin. Press the Up Arrow key to rotate the blocks.
Press the Right and Left Arrow keys to move the blocks from side to side. To quickly drop a block, press the Spacebar.
To change game options such as game difficulty, background music, or key functions, click the OPTIONS button on the menu.
I hope you enjoy playing free Tetris online!
According to Richard Haier, prolonged Tetris activity can lead to more efficient brain activity during play.
When first playing Tetris, brain function and activity increases, along with greater cerebral energy consumption, measured by glucose metabolic rate.
As Tetris players become more proficient, their brains show a reduced consumption of glucose, indicating more efficient brain activity for this task.
It sounds like Tetris really gives your brain a workout.
