Tetris the Absolute: The Grand Master 2 is the second arcade game in Arika's Tetris: The Grand Master series. The Grand Master 2 introduced the less-intimidating Normal Mode to attract more casual gamers, as well as an all-new grading system in Master Mode, the continuation of TGM's original gameplay.

Tetris the Absolute: The Grand Master 2 Plus is a free upgrade of TGM2, which added TGM+ Mode and the famous T.A. Death Mode that is played in this movie. This mode is notable for starting at maximum gravity (pieces appear to always be in contact with the ground) and increasing in speed from there.

Steelix100 completes the T.A. Death Mode in record time while using wall kicks to speed up horizontal piece movement, getting 5 Gold Medals, and also achieving the Secret Grand Master grade. The in-game time is 02:42.63.
