As the title suggests, this is a clone of the original tetris game written by Alexey Pajitnov, Dmitry Pavlovsky, and Vadim Gerasimov. The game is as close to the original as possible, but there are a few differences. Nevertheless, it's probably the closest to the original that you'll ever find in the UNIX world...
