    I am looking for the same thing.. I used to have a nice little 50k tetris.exe which worked fine but that is long gone.. I tried downloads.com but everything I download is %&#$ked up when I try to install it and god knows what else it does to the system/registry etc...

    I used to play Tetris all the time on my old NES. Recently got "Tetris + Dr. Mario" combo cartrige for my SNES, although I find myself playing the Dr. Mario part of it a lot more ... love that game.

    When I was younger I couldn't get enough of playing Tetris on the Gameboy. That to me was the best version of Tetris ever. All other versions I've tried on the PC never lived up to it. Just didn't have the same kinda 'feel' for the controls. Ahh... good times.
