The game was not only an award-winning bestseller. But also a significant milestone that influenced many in the video gaming industry. Alexey Pajitnov, creator of Tetris, said of the game, “My favorite for many, many years. Every level was a real puzzle with its own mechanics, its own dynamics, its own kind of solution. … I can’t imagine any other game with such inventive and unusual design.”
In a tribute to Smith after his death in 2014. US Gamer editor-in-chief Jeremy Parish commented, “[He] created one of the most innovative formative works of the medium. A game that managed to transcend international boundaries and become a beloved classic among American PC gamers and Japanese console fanatics alike.”
