Recently got into tetris. I'm playing here: http://www.freetetris.org/game.php This is the nicest and simpliest online version I could find (in a few minutes of searching). The only hassle is having to turn off the sound every time you restart.
Pls share your records. Here is mine: http://i.imgur.com/JoZzIwE.png
At first I thought that it's physically impossible to play starting from level 10 simply because I couldn't rotate and move the pieces quick enough. But after a few tries I realized that if you reach level 10 when the field is relatively empty, you still have a chance to survive, although it becomes extremely easy to panic and make a mistake.
Also, this game is slowly taking over my mind. Sometimes I find myself imagining these shapes and thinking what's the best way to fit them together. There is something very mentally satisfying about it.

I think, other than minor cosmetic changes, the NES, SNES and Gameboy versions of Tetris all track score in the same way and allow the pieces to slide like they should, so those are the ones I'll use to keep score. Tetris with 'sticky' pieces could make for an interesting challenge but it's not the way the game was meant to be.
