Instructions for Use

Tetris lets your child use slides, and turns to fit shapes together.

Try to fill complete lines to stay in the game. Press the right arrow to slide the piece right. Press the left arrow to slide the piece left. Press the up arrow to turn and the down arrow to move the piece to the bottom of the game.

As your child moves forward in the game, the stages become more difficult and less time is given to complete the placement of the pieces.
