* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: As the years went on that led the Tetris Company having a stronger oversight over licensed Tetris games and the consumer markets preferring digital storefronts over retail stores, it's become common to see when newer releases of Tetris games come out, older releases go out of print at retail stores and are pulled from digital storefronts.

Want UsefulNotes/GameBoy ''Tetris''? It's no longer available legally outside used game sales. There are a number of mandatory rules to follow when making an official Tetris game, meaning that making a new Tetris game with the style of an old one is generally not allowed, as it wouldn't fit with the new rules.

* ExecutiveMeddling: Beginning in [[TurnOfTheMillennium the 2000's]], the Tetris Company began enforcing guidelines on what a game carrying the ''Tetris'' name should be like, such as exact playfield dimensions, piece colors, and piece behavior, especially piece rotations. This proved to be a problem for developers like Arika that have their own ideas on ''Tetris'' games.

* NoExportForYou: Most versions based on Sega's original arcade version.
** Also, Tetris 64, though with other games of an superior quality, such as Tetrisphere, The New Tetris, and Magical Tetris Challenge, as well as having a peripheral made for that game when other Nintendo 64 games had peripherals supporting multiple games, it's probably for the better.
