Ahh, Tetris, one of the original games from video gaming‘s golden era. It’s truly amazing how much replay value the game has, as kids and adults alike are still trying to fill full rows of squares to delete them from the stack.

Computer nerd Michael Birken has gone viral updating the block stacking game by creating the Tetris Printer Algorithm. “By rotating, positioning and dropping a predetermined sequence of pieces,” the game can seemingly ‘print’ famous video game characters, such as Mario and Bubble Dragon.

The new video has already amassed over 150,000 hits, and is reviewed further on TheVerge, DailyWhat, and Kotaku
