icon TetrisCD is the first version of a popular Tetris clone created by Viktor Gars, the game moved the homebrew clones into a more colorful environment by using multi-colored shapes set to a pseudo 3D background. The most unique feature that this clone brought to the Dreamcast was the ability to disc swap an Audio CD once the game had loaded, which meant you could simply add your favorite soundtrack to the classic gameplay.

TetrisCD is another from-scratch adaptation of Tetris for the Dreamcast, it features one or two player action with the then unique feature of adding your own soundtrack CD while you played the game. The game also has High Score saving (using 1 block on the VMU) and an Auto Load feature which will load a Save Game from the first VMU detected which has a TetrisCD Save File.
