Building becomes world's largest video game in Brazil.

Summary: Tetris, Pac Man and Space Invaders were programmed on a building in Brazil.

Residents of Sao Paulo in Brazil have been encouraged to take a break and play retro video games programmed onto the side of a building.

A group of digital artists created the pyramid-shaped facade which covers 3,000 square metres of a downtown cultural centre with giant versions of Tetris, Pac Man and Space Invaders.

Those who take up the challenge control the games with an iPad, one player said: "It's weird and a lot of pressure. Everyone on the street is watching and cheering for one side of the other."
