Tetris Giant is a standard, no-frills version of Tetris implementing the standardised ruleset created by The Tetris Company. Its unique selling point, however, is that the pieces are "giant" and are controlled by two oversized controllers which experience force feedback when lines are cleared or games are lost. Sega claim the joysticks in Tetris Giant are the largest ever seen in a commercial video game.
In reality, it is not the pieces that are big, but the play area which is small. Unlike normal Tetris games, Tetris Giant is played in a 6x7 grid (versus the traditional 10x20), meaning games have the potential to end much faster. In Score Attack mode, the game also constantly compares you to a 1,000-name leaderboard.
Tetris Giant can be configured as a redemption game, with tickets awarded after scoring highly.
