"North America's First Official Web-Based Tetris(R) Game Site Reaches 1 Million Registered Users on the Heels of Adding the Ability to Select Real-Time Opponents in Tetris Arena



Press Release Source: Tetris Online, Inc. On Tuesday April 13, 2010, 9:00 am EDT

HONOLULU, HI--(Marketwire - 04/13/10) - Tetris Online, Inc. today announced that it has surpassed 1 million registered users on the official Web-based TetrisĀ® game destination in North America, Tetris Friends Online Games (www.tetrisfriends.com). This user milestone was reached just as the new community-based game Tetris Arena launched on Tetris Friends Online Games.

Tetris Arena is a real-time multiplayer Tetris game that allows users to play against up to five other players in a single match. Once inside Tetris Arena, users can jump straight into a match with the simple click of a button, or they can easily browse a list of game rooms for direct access. Tetris Arena leverages a special ranking system to help promote fair matching of new users with more experienced users. As users progress in skill, they are promoted to new areas to match up with similarly skilled players. In addition, users have the option to create private rooms that only friends can access.

"We're excited about the launch of Tetris Arena because it signals the first step in providing our registered users with the ability to play against their growing network of friends on Tetris Friends Online Games," said Minoru Arakawa, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tetris Online, Inc. "With the addition of Tetris Arena, we are making significant strides towards becoming a premier social gaming destination on the Web."

Additional features of the newly released Tetris Arena include in-game chat and the ability for up to 10 spectators to watch a match in progress. Players can use in-game magic items and other options to help customize the overall game experience. New items and features are also available for trial or purchase in the Tetris Friends Shop, where users can exchange Tokens or Rubies to further customize their gaming experience.

Tetris Arena is available for registered users on Tetris Friends Online Games. For more information about Tetris Friends Online Games and to play Tetris Arena, visit www.tetrisfriends.com."
