Who is This Course for?
By the end of this course, you will be able to build your own simple web games.
Tetris was created in 1984 by Alexey Pajitnov. The game requires players to rotate and move falling Tetris pieces. Players clear lines by completing horizontal rows of blocks without empty cells. If the pieces reach the top, the game is over.
Tetris is a great game to begin game development journey. It contains the essential elements of games and is relatively easy to program. The tetrominoes are a collection of four blocks, which makes the graphics easy and lets us make our effort in the logical parts of the game.
Remember that Tetris is licensed; this means that if you intend to use this series of articles to build your own game, make sure to abide by the law if you intend to release it.

We will build the game step-by-step. Every step has live, editable, samples available to play with so you can see what the game should look like at the end of the lesson.
You will get the most out of this course if you code along while reading the lessons. I encourage you to adapt the game as we go along. In the end, you can add some features and make the game how you want!
