Latest revision as of 23:47, 15 June 2020

In the context of Tetris, fan games are computer tetromino games unconnected with Elorg, The Tetris Company, or any other licensor of rights in the Tetris trademark. They tend to follow the well-known rules of Tetris but may not strictly follow any official guidelines.

Straight tetromino games

The following games more or less faithfully replicate the rules of some version of Tetris, either pre-Guideline or post-Guideline:

Please add to this section.

1-key finesse games

These are games that assign a key to each combination of rotation and horizontal movement, which in a 10-column playfield would require 40 keys.

NSFW games

These are games that incorporate adult elements.

Malicious piece generation

Variants that attempt to give the player the worst possible piece.

  • Bastet - Literally, Bastard Tetris. Made to be as annoying and frustrating as possible.
  • Birdris - DOS game by Andrew Bird.
  • Hatetris - Variation by Sam Hughes of Things of Interest. Has a replay system.
  • Stacked Odds - Uses an 8-wide playfield.
  • Tetrevil - Incorporates a system to balance piece distribution (choose between weights, 7-bag and 21-bag).
  • Worst Piece Piece Game - Hold is available. Has six levels of difficulty.

In addition, the following games previously listed have game modes that attempt to do this:

  • Abandoned Bricks in Bastet mode (using the algorithm from v0.41 of Bastet)
  • Cultris II during the WTF challenge
  • F-Tetris in Bastard! mode
  • Java Duel Tetris in Nightmare mode
  • LTris with Expert Mode on (with the constraint that piece generation still acts as a bag randomiser in this mode)
  • NullpoMino when using the Tetrevil mode mod (also part of Blitz's mod pack)
  • Quadrapassel
  • Zeromeaner when using the Eviline randomiser (successor to Tetrevil)

Other piece sets

These games have similar gameplay to Tetris but change the piece set, most commonly by adding pentominoes, but also other larger or smaller polyominoes, or pseudo-polyominoes, or sometimes even quasi-polyominoes.

Please add to this section.

In addition, the following games previously listed have the option to play with a non-standard piece set:

  • EGAint
  • Emlith
  • Super Retriss
  • Tetris Deluxe (Todd S. Lehman)
  • WinTris
  • Yet Another Tetris

Non-2D variants

These games correspond to attempts to take the gameplay of Tetris into higher (or lower) dimensions. See also List of games#Other_.22-tris.22_games.

  • Humorous versions#1D Tetris - Various 1D variants.
  • 3D Tetris (online game) - 3dtetris.com 3D variant of the classic Tetris game. You can play the game: online, offline and mobile. The game use the Java virtual machine.
  • 3DTRIS - 3dtris.de A clone of Blockout (3D variant of Tetris) in Macromedia Flash. Its gameplay is very smooth, just like original Blockout. Online high score list with growing competitions.
  • 3Tris - A Blockout clone.
  • 4D-Tris - A 4D variant where the aim is to fill 2 × 2 × 2 layers.
  • Blockout II - blockout.net The best clone of Blockout (3D Tetris) for Windows using DirectX. Online high score list, forum, wiki.
  • Frac - A 3D variant for DOS and Macintosh.
  • Frac4d - A 4D variant derived from Frac. Released as freeware in 2006.
  • HyperTetris - Another 4D variant with a 4 × 4 × 4 × 10 playfield.
  • oti3 - A Blockout-like 3D variant.
  • Polycubes
  • Polytope Tetris - A variant with a configurable number of dimensions (though playability suffers at 5D and above).
  • Takalith - A Blockout-like game for the PC-9801.
