    Second. Quinn is by far the best (and prettiest) "falling blocks game" available on OS X. Plus, it gives you the option for network play, which is tons of fun.

    There's also freetetris.org it's online only and not too pretty- but it's plenty addicting.

    Tetris Zone

    I would definitely check out Tetris Zone. Unfortunately its not free but out all Tetris games I've tried, I would definitely recommend this one! :)

    That's wild, I had no idea it wasn't UB. ...I'm on PPC so it doesn't matter, but still...

    I'm always running out of RAM (maybe I should upgrade...) and so the less Rosetta there is, the happier I am :)

    On a Mac, I'd say Quinn.

    Best Tetris I've yet played is Tetris DS mind you. the music and visuals work so well together, lots of extra modes and online play (with rankings, I believe). I've spent days playing just single games in the past (thanks DS's sleep feature).

    Definately go with Quinn.

    And the fact it is not UB, well there is a *relatively* stable UB version (however I would not recommend it over the PPC version mind you) over in the forums but it's development was abandoned because the bugs that appeared were to difficult to solve without Simon (the developer) having an intel mac himself. More info available there.

    Quinn actually runs better on my Intel Macbook than my G4 Mini :D

    Not that it's a surprise, really.
