Tetris is a puzzle game created by Alexey Pajitnov. The game is pretty simple; form as many lines as possible. To do this, you take any of the 4-segment blocks the game gives you and fill an entire row in the well to clear it.
The Sharp X68000 version of Tetris was developed and published by BPS, the original company who brought it outside of the USSR. BPS also developed the other versions of this same version of the game such as the MSX, PC-8801, PC-9801, and even the Famicom versions.
The BPS versions of the game follow the "Type-B" games found in the Game Boy and NES versions, rather than the endless "Type-A" mode; the player must clear 25 lines to beat the level. Also like the Nintendo versions, the player can select from stages 0-9 and height 0-5, the latter providing a level of "garbage" blocks on the playing field, making it harder to win.
Tetris shares the same soundtrack with the other BPS-released versions. That means it also contains Korobeiniki and Technotris. In fact, this was the first game to use what is now known as the "Tetris Theme".
In the Tetris Game Music album (see below), the game's soundtrack can be heard in its entirety in the twelfth track ORIGINAL VERSION MEDLEY. This suggests that the Sharp X68000 version of the game was developed first before the others.

- Game Credits:
The game's credits are shown at the title screen. The Z in Hisashi's name most likely means Zero, as the Famicom version credits him as Hisashi Zero Yotsumoto. The moniker Goblin Sound is most likely an alias for Hiroshi Suzuki, who was credited in similar games for sound effects, but this should be verified. If this is true, then it is unknown why he uses the moniker of the sound team name, rather than his real name like Hisashi and Hiroshi.
The rip includes both the VGM files, as well as the MML and driver files.
