When you launch Tetris with online leader board on your Windows 8 or 8.1 device, you will be presented with a screen which looks like the below screenshot.
As you can see in the above screen, you are presented with the game interface with the touch controls at the bottom of the screen. At the bottom right, you will be able to see the block direction and speed control arrows, and at the bottom left, you will be able to see the block rotation arrow. These touch controls make the game friendly for touch screen devices. For non touch screen device users, you can use the arrow buttons on your keyboard to control the direction of motion of the blocks (left arrow for left, right arrow for right), down arrow key for controlling the speed of the block. You can also use the up arrow key to rotate the block and help it fit into spaces between the other blocks. Now let’s get to the gameplay itself. When you click on the Start Game button at the top right screen corner, your game will start and the gameplay will look like the below screenshot.
The game gets over when you are unable to eliminate the blocks and they have piled up to the top of the screen.
