Tetris Becomes Best-Selling Mobile Game Of All TimeWhen it comes to addicting games about arranging falling blocks created by Russian mathematicians in the mid-1980s, Tetris easily ranks among the best. It’s appeared on practically every console and platform imaginable, and over the past few years it has become one of the most popular mobile phone games around…Actually, I take that back. It has become THE MOST popular mobile phone game of all time. Slight difference.

The game’s rights holder, Blue Planet Software, and EA Mobile made the announcement today, revealing that the mobile version of the game has surpassed 100 million paid downloads since 2005.

“After Tetris’ success with the Game Boy in 1989, we always hoped that potential would carry over into today’s mobile devices. It’s a testament to the game’s staying power that it remains popular on today’s most modern technology,” Blue Planet CEO Henk Rogers said in a statement.

(Side note: My girlfriend happens to be an unbelievable Tetris player. Seriously. She’d kill you without thinking twice. Tetris is also the only mobile game she’s ever bought, and she’s bought it anew with each new phone. She’s hardcore.)

How many of you have purchase a mobile version of Tetris at some point? How many of you are playing it right now?
