Can you believe that Tetris—the tile-matching puzzle game—was first created back in 1984? Yet here we are, all these years later, with it still going strong. In fact, Tetris is the best selling game of all time. On certain WiFi networks, however—like at school or work—Tetris may be restricted. So how do you get Tetris unblocked?
Fortunately, it’s as easy as downloading the free Hotspot Shield app and clicking “connect”.
Read on to find out how it works.
The great thing with Tetris is, unlike many games today, there’s an element of learning that occurs. There’s strategy, thinking on your feet, staying ahead of the game, and so on. In short, it takes a sharp mind to excel at Tetris.
Which is why it shouldn’t be restricted on school or work WiFi, providing it’s being played off hours—like during lunch or recess. We wouldn’t want anything coming between you and class!

How Hotspot Shield VPN gets Tetris unblocked
Hotspot Shield is a free app that encrypts you data over a network. Effectively, it switches out your device’s IP address and provides a secure ‘tunnel’ for your data to travel through. This makes you ‘invisible’ online, which is perfect for staying anonymous, protecting yourself from hackers, and for unblocking restricted content.
If the network you’re connected to—in this case, your school’s WiFi—doesn’t know what site or app you’re trying to visit, it can’t block you. So any restrictions in place will instantly be bypassed.
What other content does Hotspot Shield unblock?
Because Hotspot Shield VPN can bypass restrictions on any WiFi network, it unblocks practically every type of content you can imagine. So, you don’t just get Tetris unblocked!
Firstly, ANY game you want to play will be unblocked. You can also unblock Netflix, YouTube, Snapchat, Spotify, movies, and more. People use Hotspot Shield to access their Netflix shows from abroad, for example. Or to watch sporting events occurring in different countries, as if they were a local.
In this case, you can use Hotspot Shield to not only switch out your device’s IP address but to also select a virtual server location from a different country. With your traffic routed via a foreign server, you’ll look like you’re located in that specific country.
For example, if you are in Germany but connect to the “United States” server from within the Hotspot Shield app, the site you visit will think you’re in the U.S. and treat you as such—giving you access to websites that would ordinarily be blocked.
Why you need a VPN for gaming
As a gamer, you might think that different servers are overkill. After all, if you don’t need to access content from abroad and you’re just trying to get Tetris unblocked, for example, you might not think it’s
However, you may be surprised.
Here’s how Hotspot Shield VPN can improve your gaming experience beyond simply unblocking websites and apps.
- Access games that are geo-restricted in certain countries, or play games early that are not yet released in your country.
- Reduce lag time by connecting to Hotspot Shield servers that are located closer to where the game’s servers are located.
- Keep your devices secure from hackers and malware when on unsecured gaming websites.
With things like Tetris unblocked and faster load times, it’s little wonder over 650 million people choose Hotspot Shield VPN to get the best gaming experience. And best of all, it’s free to use.
However, if you want the ability to access over 29 virtual server locations, you should upgrade to Hotspot Shield Premium for as low as $2.99 per month. Additionally, Premium users get unlimited bandwidth to continue gaming until their heart’s content.
Not sure if Premium is right for you? Hotspot Shield offers a 7-day free trial and a 45-day money back guarantee. If it’s not your jam, you can just stick with the free version and continue playing Tetris.
