challenging sliding blocks
If you enjoy sliding block puzzles, you will like this one. More challenging than most sliding block puzzles because of the different kinds of blocks and barriers. Doesn't get repetitive; each board is a fresh challenge.
The interface is nice to look at, but I actually find the 3-D look distracts me from the puzzles. Just a matter of taste. Other reviewers give it high praise, and I'll agree it's pretty. I wish I could turn off the music and the chirring insects. I like the block sound effects, though.
A good selection of puzzles; excellent value for the cost. Also, they provide extra free downloadable puzzles on their website, and they keep adding to the website collection, so lots of puzzles available. There is also a downloadable level editor so you can make and share your own.
Well done puzzle game
If you're a puzzle fan you've seen this before. I've never figured out if there's any "official" name for these 'free the block from the other blocks' games. I've seen several names used, though 'Escape' is the only one I can think of right now.
However, all the puzzles themselves are new to me. Also there are unique elements added to Blockado, including but not limited to magnet, springs, and switches. Sometimes the board looks overwhelming even though the puzzle itself is not that hard.
All in all it's a worthy game for puzzler fans or casual players. It's definitely fun enough for adults but I imagine even very young kids may enjoy it if they're of the right disposition.
Well designed, challenging, and good achievements in Game Center... Can't ask for much more in a sliding block puzzle. Unique mechanics such as magnets, ice, and bendable blocks set this title apart.
