INSTRUCTIONS

Use the arrow keys on your computer keyboard to translate the falling block left or right. Use the up arrow key to rotate the falling block 90° clockwise.

Completely fill a horizontal row with squares and earn 400 points. Those squares will then disappear, the blocks above will drop into the space leaving more room to complete more horizontal rows.

The game will end when there is no longer room for a block to drop in from the top of the screen.

Transformation Tetris

Develop your skills translating and rotating shapes in this fast paced classic game.

Tetris is a classic tile-matching game created by a Russian software engineer in 1984.

It has been reported that moderate play of Tetris boosts general cognitive functions such as 'critical thinking, reasoning, language and processing' and increases cerebral cortex thickness.


Rotations and translations are just two of the types of transformations you will learn about on the Maths GCSE course. You can learn more about this topic by doing the online exercise called Transformations.
