I don't know about you, but it's impossible for me to think about Tetris without that ultra-catchy ditty playing in my head over and over. Oh no, there it goes again.

Dum dum de dum dum de dum dum de dum dum de dum dum de dum dum dum dum. Luckily, Tertramino doesn't have the same tune, although it does mimic the original very well in terms of gameplay.

Your mission is a familiar one - to eliminate as many coloured blocks as possible by stacking them in an orderly fashion. The game translates well to the Pocket PC, making use of the stylus, which you can use to move the pieces from left to right and to rotate them.

The action gets pretty fast and furious as you progress. This made me want to come back time and again in order to get past the later levels.

Unfortunately, I found them just too darn difficult and the game became frustrating after a while.

However, if you like a challenge and are dexterous with your stylus you should warm to this faithful remake.

TeKnowMagic Tetramino is a Tetris game with two 'skins' and some funny sounds. You can set sounds on/off and change skins using the menus and you can move your pieces in a new way.

You can 'drag' the piece while is falling, and move it the left and right using the PDA stylus, so it will be easier to play on your Pocket PC.
