Aside from having a really great promo video, included below within this review, I found Blocktagon to be quite enjoyable. A simplistic interface and basic board design are assets to this games addictive game play. If there were any complaints relating to my experience, it’s that I really struggled to fully understand the characteristics of the bomb tiles, and found myself repeating levels to try and get the desired combination.
Graphically, Blocktagon is nothing revolutionary. It doesn’t have to be to deliver a great gaming experience though. This puzzle based game utilized a simple control structure to provide easy gaming excitement between meetings, on the subway, or in line for the movies.
The goal of each of Blocktagons 100 levels, yes a full 100 levels, is to remove all blocks from the board by using various combinations of blocks. Block designs vary, and each one has a specific use. For even more depth, certain blocks interact with one another differently, depending on blocks that are directly next to, or between, one block and another. This added layer of depth helps to alleviate the repetitiveness that similar puzzle based games can develop over time.
If you’re even remotely a puzzler fan, I can confidently say that Blocktagon has the potential to be a positive gaming experience for you. Its sheer size alone ensures that it will provide ample game play time, if nothing else. You can try Blocktagon out now for $4.99 at your local app store.
