Super Tetris Sphere, Inc. / Spectrum Holobyte, Inc. 1991

This is a Tetris variant. It contains additional features such as different types of gameplay (two player cooperative and competitive) as well as new block types (lightning bolts that eliminate an entire row, and bombs that eliminate from 2 to 16 blocks). The Moscow Circus in shown in the background and there's much improved graphics. For every line you kill you get a certain amount of bombs which can destroy other blocks. You don't play like on an empty board - there are always lines with spaces at the most uncomfortable places below - once you manage to get rid of a certain amount (meaning you remove those on black background) those buggers come creeping up again drawing up a picture. Well, of course that's the way to complete the levels and not just another nasty way to make the game harder! Once you have the full pic up you advance to the next level and - like in the original Tetris - the blocks fall down faster. The possibility to plan with the bombs adds a strategic element to the game - you almost always have a chance to get back into the game. If you left too many holes in the lines below the game was over almost for certain in the original game, now you can leave out holes at the right places and make your way through with the bombs to create just the empty slot you need for the next tile. And then there's yet another goodie: you have little bonus-blocks which for example kill the whole line they're in when you blow them up with a bomb.
