In the context of Tetris, fan games are computer tetromino games unaffiliated with Elorg, The Tetris Company, or any current or past licensor of the Tetris brand.

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.

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.
