How to Play

The objective of Tetris is to move and rotate falling pieces called tetrominoes in order to create complete horizontal lines. When a line is complete, it will be cleared, and the lines above it will drop down. The game becomes progressively faster as you clear more lines and level up.


  • Left Arrow: Move the active piece left.
  • Right Arrow: Move the active piece right.
  • Down Arrow: Move the active piece down (soft drop).
  • Up Arrow: Rotate the active piece clockwise.
  • Space: Hard drop the active piece.
  • C: Hold the active piece.
  • P: Pause the game.
  • Q: Quit the game.
