Trying to get the DOSBox version to work. I've got it running easy enough, but how does one customize the controls? I can use the arrow keys to move back and forth, but not rotate the pieces.

There was no music because most first generation PC's didn't have sound cards.

Awesome version of Tetris! Being the first commercial version, and beingfrom Spectrum Holobyte only sweetens the deal!! Lovin' the backgrounds too. Saying this is the only worthwhile version however is just daft.

Agreed, this is a great version of Tetris. It was always fun to get to the next level and see what the background was going to be.

This was the *original* commercial version of Tetris. One of the most pirated games in pirating history, Every other version of Tetris was nothing more than a knockoff of this, and weak ones at that. If you want Tetris to waste hours playing, download this one and let the others collect rust.
