In order to celebrate the launch of the Tetris movie on Apple TV+, The Tetris Company has released a special version of the game for browsers that intends to emulate the original 1984 version. This is based on the original version that Alexey Pajitnov created at the Dorodnitsyn Computing Centre in Moscow, for the old Soviet-made computer, the Elektronika 60, and uses green brackets instead of solid blocks.

It's a neat bit of marketing and is just as engaging as you might expect. So, if you want to give it a go, you should head on over to the official Tetris website. There you'll find this special version of the game, complete with a retro monitor-style display and options to tweak the game more to your liking.

Interestingly, this isn't the only recent attempt to bring the 1984 experience to players. Last month, for example, we reported on a Tetris hack for the NES that attempts to give the 1989 version of the game an Elektronika 60 makeover.

If you want to watch the Tetris movie, you'll find it available to stream now on Apple's subscription service Apple TV+.
