SPORKTRIS: Freeware Version Of Tetris

Sporktris logoGreetings,

SPORKTRIS is a free, downloadable, Tetris-like game for Mac, Linux and Windows.It’s Sunday again – the day of rest. Some folks like to relax by playing computer games and what better game to play on a relaxing Sunday then the perennial favourite – Tetris or in this case a free downloadable knock-off with versions for Linux, Mac and Windows called SPORKTRIS.

SPORKTRIS may be a knock-off but it’s virtually identical to the real thing. Shapes made up of 4 blocks fall from the top. Players user the keyboard arrows to move the blocks left or right as well as flip the blocks over – just like Tetris.
