TEL AVIV – The Tel Aviv municipality launched a giant version of the video game Tetris projected on to the City Hall building on Tuesday evening.
The massively popular 1980s video game lit up the 10,000 foot façade of City Hall with nearly 500 different colored Tetris blocks in honor of the upcoming annual DLD Tel Aviv Innovation Festival.
Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai unveiled a giant joystick and started playing on Tuesday evening.
The game is now open to the public to play for free during the summer using two supersized five-foot joysticks. Video game lovers can also play old favorites Pong and Snake.
Once Israeli schools are in session, the public can enjoy the games every Thursday evening after sundown.
