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

The Web is heavily populated by Gen-X and Yers who still have a strong affection towards the 8-bit world. As a result, it is difficult to find a pop song that isn’t covered in the classic 8-bit video game sound. 

It’s a wonder it took a music artist online so long to cover Daft Punk with a retro sound. Finally, Joe Jeremiah has come forward with a cover of  “every song from Daft Punk’s new album Random Access Memories in 8-bit style.”
