Alexey Pajitnov created one of the most important and influential games of all times in Tetris. The classic title has been released on plenty of different platforms over the past few decades in different forms and is a big reason why the Game Boy was as successful as it was.

Tetris 99 was Nintendo’s take on the battle royal genre, and might be the most interesting version of Tetris yet. What does Pajitnov think of the Switch release? He’s actually appreciative of what was done with Tetris 99, telling USgamer that it “is absolutely a great title.”

He mentioned to the site:

Nintendo has announced that Tetris 99 will host the 10th Maximus Cup this week. The event is promoting the new Team Battle Mode, and the top 999 players will each win 999 Gold Points on My Nintendo.
