Tetris (Tengen, NES)
Tengen's Tetris is basically an improved revision of the Vs. System arcade game, which itself was a port of Atari's own arcade game. It was pulled from shelves after a mere month due to complicated licensing disputes with Nintendo. It had a few features Nintendo's own version (released six months later) did not have, and because of that, some consider it the better Tetris game of the two.

The game features some leftover sound effects from the Nintendo Vs. version, all of which are unused.
