I love Tetris! Nothing could compare with the satisfaction I get from clearing a line after another. So in this guide, we are going to build a handheld game that plays not only Tetris, but Snake and more!


When the Tiny Tetris is first turned on, you can use the left/right buttons to select between Tetris, Snake, and the Paint program, then press the center button to enter the program. Once you're inside a program, you can switch to the previous/next one by holding down the center button and press the brightness adjustment buttons on the left side.
