Languages Online Tetris is played like other versions of the game. Different shaped blocks fall from the top of the screen. The blocks can be moved to the left or right and can be rotated to form completed rows. When a row is complete it disappears from screen and points are added to your score. If rows are not completed they remain on screen. These unfinished rows build up, making it harder and harder to manouver the falling blocks into place. The game ends when the blocks build up to the top of the play space.
In this version of tetris the game pauses after every fourth block has fallen. To continue you need to type in the correct word in response to a clue and click 'check'. If the answer is correct the game continues. If the answer is not correct then a 'bomb' falls through the game space removing any blocks in it's way.
Using the Tetris Game Maker you can create language tasks for students to complete. The clue can be either text, pictures or voice recordings, and you must also enter the correct answer word.
