Does average, every-day Tetris leave you bored and wanting for more? Try HD Tetris, a high-resolution version of the game that will make you wish you'd never heard the name Alexey Pajitnov.

What can really be said about a remake of one of the most addictive videogames of all time that manages, with a single, simple trick, to suck out all the fun and turn it into a chore that would try the patience of the most dedicated Chinese gold farmer? There have been a lot of Tetris-inspired games since the original was released by Russian computer engineer Pajitnov in 1985, some good and some bad, but none quite like this.

One imaginative gamer named Anne grew tired of the game and decided to let it run on its own for awhile. The result? Days of unattended Tetris and some intriguing coral-like patterns of color.

I couldn't be bothered to finish a single line myself, so if you can form even one line you'll have me beat. Post your screens and claim your prize!
