    Anyone else got this? It's made specially for Android, is a bit on the expensive side but works brilliantly.

    There's been some awesome games for Android recently - Tetris, Galcon, Fruit Ninja, Mini Squadron and Angry Birds (beta)

    Times are good!!

    Agreed - but you could always get a refund?

    If you like Tetris though...you'll love this :)

    Is it by EA? There is only one Tetris app in the app store (ios) and it is by EA, i thought EA holds exclusive publishing right or something.
    Did you know that Tetris was invented in USSR lol ?

    I've been on an Android game spending spree recently by buying Castle Warriors, Fruit Ninja, Guns 'n' Glory, Hyper Jump, Mini Squadron, Overkill, Radiant & my most recent purchase was the legendary Tetris yesterday.

    Reall good times to be an Android gamer IMO. Mini Squadron and Tetris have been sucking my life away on both my Streak and Nexus. Once Angry Birds hits, I'll be super happy! :D

    Weird... I already have a Tetris game by EA on my droid. Have had it for ages and paid for it, in fact.

    It seems like the one I had was taken off the market and replaced by this one. I wonder why they did that and why they want me to pay for the same game twice.

    Anyone else notice this?

    AFAIK, EA used to sell Tetris on their webstore and this is the first time they have released Tetris on Android Market.

    Weird lol. I don't remember buying it from their website but maybe I did. It was when I first got my phone and there were no other games yet, so I was probably desperate

    This has been in the market before, I've never purchased anything from EA webstore and I've had this game for my EVO since the day I bought it 3 1/2 months ago.

    I'm sure this is the first time...

    It's much better than the version that used to be on hallmark or whatever that website was called.

    Still loving it!

    i agree, that price is pretty steep, but TETRIS is always worth it!
    big companies (like EA) getting involved in the Market is probably going to have a big impact on app prices across the board.

    wasn't TETRIS for nintendo ds like $40 or something?

    Back in the day when Tetris was cutting edge.... sure!

    The price tag is ONLY because the game is made by EA... and they feel as though they are too "high caliber" to sell a game for anything less. I agree though that it's nice they are getting into the android gaming market. Unfortunately if they make really good games, they'll only be more expensive...

    tetris was a bad game for them to overprice, especially because there are so many knockoffs. hopefully, if they do start making more expensive games, the games will be good enough to be worth it.

    It's worth the $4.99. Aside from the hiccup when the music changes (which is a problem on all phones), it runs great on the Droid Eris!

    Yep, this is definitely a shady move by EA. I am looking at my Google Checkout receipt from 12/23/2009 when I bought the previous version of official Tetris from EA Mobile. They had one version, and removed it, only to replace it with this version. It's pretty greedy to not just allow those who have already paid for it to update to the new version. I am intending to send an email to EA in order to contest this prior to purchase. Thankfully, I can send them my receipt from 2009 when the price was the same: $4.99 + 0.30 tax = $5.29.
