Squarez Deluxe screenshot
Squarez resembles Tetris in the sense that you assemble sets of blocks in specific patterns so they dissappear to make room for more blocks (repeat ad infinitum if you're lucky or skillful). As opposed to Tetris' vertical action, Squarez plays horizontal, and instead of lines you seek to put together 3x3 "squarez" of blocks (hmm, they also might be called bloxz or something...). There are numerous special blocks, with both beneficial and not-so-beneficial effects. Many of these are fun in two-player mode especially.

I have to warn you, this one is very addictive and the two-player mode is quite fun as well – there's a mistake in it though – instead of counting regular points for the players, the game ought to keep score on matches won or something more original, as it's quite boring when the other player loses the other is expected just to continue on his/her own. Nevermind that though, you can always press ESC and start another one. This one comes highly recommended. Two thumbs up!
