Electronic Arts has rebooted one of the classic and most addictive puzzle games of all time. If you thought the original Tetris was fun, wait until you try it on a timer.

In the free Tetris Blitz, you have two minutes to clear lines and rack up as many points as you can. But a timer isn’t the only thing that sets this reimagined game apart from the 30-year-old version you played as a kid. Tetris Blitz also features Xbox Live achievements, Facebook leaderboards for competing against friends, and all-new controls and scoring modes. The upshot? The game you thought you knew will make your heart race all over again. Download it now
