I know most people know that the Tetris game is trademarked. "Tetrinomo" may also be trademarked as well. https://desiree47.wordpress.com/2008/12/07/tetris-and-intellectual-property-rights-trademark/
Just wanted to let you know.

Yes, Tetrimino is under trademark as Tetris.

But Tetromino (or Tetramino) are geometric schape of 4 squares like domino (2 squares) and pentomino (5 squares).
This term was used years before Tetris...

 did some  research, there are many apps with "tetrimono" in their name
https://play.google.com/store/search?q=Tetrinomo

this one is from 2015:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.kjlim1982.pilotA

so it should be ok hopefully - but if the Tetris trademark/legal people are in a bad mood they could still probably get google to issue strikes, I doubt they will really care about the nuances of naming they can just say these apps impersonate tetris or something

EDIT:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cyber.development.tetris
- ok, this app is from 2013, so it should be fine

One thing I heard people that have been banned say all the time: There was apps like this already, so why did Google ban me?

Not just the word "tetrimono" but also those tetris shapes are trademarked. Really it doesn't matter though, all the Tetris company has to do is complain and your app will be taken down.

Played your game a bit, didn't get to build any actual tetris shapes, but not bad.
