The history of Tetris
18 March 2011 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

You may have played it on a game console before (like me, to be honest), or for the older generation, on the home computer. Blocks of different shapes and sizes falling from the top of the screen and after they settle, if there is a whole line, it will disappear. What only remains is if you cannot make a whole line. That is when it keeps building up until there is no more room left and it is game over.

The world knows it as Tetris. But for every success story and a global phenomenon like Tetris, its success is not straightforward. It has its origins in the former Soviet Union in Russia. From the Russian Academy of Sciences's Dorodnitsyn Computing Centre, how the popular game would find its way to millions around the world beyond the Soviet borders, the documentary puts the spotlight on the people who were involved at the various stages of the deal. The dealings and the negotiations.

The documentary comes alive with the people who were involved in the dealings and the negotiations to make what Tetris would be in the world of gaming, telling their side of the story of the phenomenon. Easy to follow and understand, it is an hour's journey (the duration of the documentary originally from BBC Four) of a fascinating story which happens towards the end of the Cold War and beyond.
