Tetris on tetris.com is a free, ad supported, web based guideline game.


The game follows the rule set of the endless Marathon known from older games. It can be played with keyboard or mouse (although EA's mobile Tetris game used a similar but limited (only 5 positions) feature). Keys are customizable and so are auto-repeat delay (DAS) and auto-repeat speed (ARR). The game features three different versions of Korobeiniki, the Tetris theme as music and also has a local high score table where you enter your initials.

The endless Marathon can be started at levels 1, 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25. Speed maxes out at level 30. The level increases every 10 cleared lines. For example, it is 140 lines to level 15 when starting at level 1, and 100 lines to level 15 when starting at level 5. Starting the game at level 1 or level 5 is recommended for scoring purposes.

When a level increases, so does the gravity (level 20 is already 20G, that means pieces are pulled down immediately to the very bottom). Afterwards, lock delay decreases (whereas the initial lock delay is about a half second), while ARE is still constant. The game uses move-reset lock delay, in which a movement or rotation of a piece will reset the delay, making it still active until either the delay runs out or the piece is moved or rotated 15 times.
