Call me unsophisticated but Tetris is still my favourite computer game. It’s both challenging and a brain-dead sort of activity that is a nice way to decompress. The Russian-born game has seen several resurgences over the decades and it’s about to get another refurbishment thanks to Apple Arcade–and it’s got a musical bent. Behold Tetris Beat.
