Game Information

PlayTV Legends Family Tetris is a direct-to-TV unit developed by HiScore Entertainment Software Engineering and distributed by Radica Games in the fall of 2006. The game shipped with two gamepad-style controllers with four "AA" batteries, and connected directly to a standard television via the television's audio/video composite inputs.

The game also features:

  • Multiplayer game modes - Play solo or with a friend via the second controller, game includes both co-op and competitive game variants.
  • Tetris game modes - The game includes Race, Marathon, Dig, and Versus game modes, as well as Family mode which enables people of all ages and skill levels to play together.
  • Skill levels - The game allows players to choose how many bricks are used to create blocks (from 1 to 4). Thus, young players can play using simple 1-brick blocks, while those more experienced can stick to classic 4-brick Tetrominos.
  • Graphic themes - The game includes three distinctive backgrounds: Reef, Western, and Space, each including numerous incidental and reward character animations.
