Friday Fun: Play Tetris in Google Chrome

Do you prefer playing classic games rather than the newer ones? Then get ready for some classic goodness with the JC-Tetris extension for Google Chrome.

JC-Tetris in Action

When you click on your new “JC-Tetris Toolbar Button” a new mini-Chrome window will open with the game displayed inside. This could be very convenient for those who would like or need to pause the game, minimize the window, and finish the game later. All that is needed to play are the four “Arrow Keys & the Space Bar”.

Note: The text was small when the window first opened during our test so we used the “Ctrl +” keyboard shortcut twice to enlarge it. You may or may not experience similar text size results.

Like any Tetris game things start out “quietly enough” but this one speeds up quickly, so be prepared! Notice that you do get a warning of what is waiting to drop onto the game board on the left side.

Whenever you complete a game you will see this small window asking if you would like to enter a name for the score…you can easily ignore/bypass the window by clicking “Cancel”.

Another game and a much better result. Do not be surprised if you feel that little burst of “rushed panic” at the end!

Conclusion

JC-Tetris is an enjoyable way to relax when you need a break. The ability to pause the game and minimize it for later makes it even better. Have fun!

    Wow those screencaps show a terrible game. I hope those were played that badly just for demo purposes. :P

    Your Screen Savers Are Just Terrific but they do not cover full screen hence I have not been able to use one . Can you not send screen savers covering full monitor screen unless it Invoves big hasstle.
