Game Details

Rotate blocks to fill in spaces and make lines which get eliminated. Come on, everybody knows that :)

Game has a distinctly Russian feel, all of the R's are back to front, and you can even see the old Russian Royal palaces in the background.

Music is great, gameplay is hideously addictive, graphics are pleasant.
