Tetris Type Game "Tris"

I don't remember when I got it, but I have this tetris game on my phone called Tris.
I tried to find it on the App Store, but its not there anymore.\
Does anyone know about this game, Tris?

Tris [App Store] developer Noah Witherspoon posts that his very popular Tetris clone will be removed from the App Store as of Wednesday, August 27th.

The removal is due to a copyright claim made by the Tetris company.

^ What arn said. It was removed from the store. There are some other tetris clones on the store now, however.

I have Tris, and it is passable by most standards, but doesn't follow official Tetris guidelines. The official Tetris is way better. Some would say pricey, but being a Tetris fiend, it's not too bad.

I got my iPod Touch after Tris was pulled. I want tetris to play now but am not willing to pay the money. Too bad Apple had to remove it.

It was the devs choice to take it down. Technically he could have fought it but he was/still is? a college student and didn't want to waste effort on fighting it out.

I still have it on my iphone. it loads almost instantly and lets me play whenever I have a few seconds to spare
