Tetris followed its original version for Electronica 60 when Vadim Gerasimov, then sixteen years old, ported it to IBM PC. This version spread through Moscow quickly after he and Alexey Pajitnov shared it with their friends.

Download version 3.12 of the first PC version of Tetris from Gerasimov's web page here (Tetris3.zip), and a utility to change the tetromino colors here.
