Tetris (テトリス Tetorisu) is a variant of Alexey Pajitnov's tile-matching game of the same name that was made for the Famicom. It was developed and published by Bullet Proof Software (BPS), who had licensed the rights to publish a console version in Japan from Atari Games (Tengen) and Spectrum HoloByte (Sphere). The discovery that the console rights Tengen had granted BPS were not actually legitimate led to Henk Rogers's purchase of the Tetris license on multiple platforms, which later led directly to further Nintendo releases.

This version is infamous for its unusual control scheme, which mapped "down" to rotate, "A" to hard drop, and no way to soft drop.

The game was made available on AtGames' Legends Flashback console, which was released in October 2018. AtGames licensed the title from The Tetris Company.
