Trivia: Tetris
  • Executive Meddling:
    • The fates of the Tengen version of NES Tetris and the Genesis/Mega Drive port of Sega's arcade version of Tetris.
    • Beginning in 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.
  • Killer App: This game made the Game Boy, and it was packed in with the system for years.
  • No Export for You:
    • Most versions based on Sega's original arcade version.
    • Tetris 64.
  • Port Overdosed: Arguably the most widely-ported game in history. It is said that if you can program it, someone has made a version of Tetris for it, up to and including the sides of buildings.
