Mirrorsoft was a game software publisher in the United Kingdom, owned by Mirror Group Newspapers. It started off with educational software and then moved into games. One offshoot of its printing roots was Fleet Street Publisher on several platforms. A PC version was developed by Rowan Software but was scrapped before release.

Mirrorsoft's most famous - and infamous - product was Tetris, the rights to which were acquired in a series of complicated licensing issues.

Many games were not released under the name "Mirrorsoft", but under publishing labels like Image Works.

Mirrorsoft was bought by Acclaim in 1992 and was founded by Jim Mackonochie.
