Good Tetris game for PC?

    Hallo all,

    some time ago I discovered videos of decent tetris players on youtube and they convinced me to start playing tetris. Thus I have now acquired Tetris DS and Tetris Zone and I love them both. Unfortunately it is necessary to be connected to the internet to play Tetris Zone and I don't have that possibility during the week. Are there any comparable alternatives which don't require an internet connection?

    tetris worlds has comparable gameplay and runs on Windows, but the modes are a little different and there are no leaderboards.

    tetris worlds in the wiki.

    Here are several PC alternatives that target the singleplayer experience.




    I'm starved of time so perhaps someone else can give details on these clones and link you in the right direction.

    Heboris is also good, but there are different versions scattered all over the place, and uploaded in various places, so it's harder to link to.

    Texmaster and LJ should satisfy any single-player needs though.

    Any problems, look things up on the wiki, or ask in the relevant threads, and someone should be able to help.

    Thanks for your recommendations.

    Sadly Texmaster didn't work on my PC - probably because I have Windows Vista. I didn't like the design of Lockjaw that much (ok, Tetris is not a game you play because of its breathtaking graphics), but the gameplay appeared to be ok. Heboris looked pretty neat and was fun and I will very likely waste the next hours playing that. Tetris Worlds seems also to be nice, but I didn't find a version to download (only saw a video on youtube).

    I can start it, but when I press any button at the start menu nothing happens.

    Btw: Lockjaw is very fun too.
  9. @jan: you might also check out [MODDED] . its a bit like tetris worlds. it is a single exe download, so it should run right out of the box, no installation, no unzipping necessary.

    there is also an online highscore list.

    You need to change your key config.

    From what I've seen so far it is really nice, I love the graphics.

    Ok, I'll try that.
  12. Let me also recommend Texmaster. It is easy to use, and well made.
  13. When Texmaster says "Press any key", it actually means "press any game key", which are B, N, or M on default settings.
