Wordtris requires the player to match words like in Boggle or Scrabble, while facing the elements of block breaking. Designed by the original Tetris designer Alexey Pajitnov, Wordtris is a variant on his famous puzzle game that tests the player's vocabulary as well as their reaction speed.
The game was originally released on the PC, but was later ported to the SNES and Game Boy. The console versions were limited by their lack of keyboard support. Many of the game's resources were taken from the earlier PC Tetris game Super Tetris.
