Interesing puzzle game
The tutorial didn't make any sense to me, but trial and error in the first few levels taught me how to play.
1) You are presented with a board of pieces (visible by their black edges).
2) Some blocks on the board are light and some are dark (part of the "blue zone" mentioned in the tutorial, see second screenshot above).
3) The goal is to remove the light blocks by removing pieces from the board.
When you click a piece, it is erased. This moves any pieces above it down, provided the entire piece can move down without hitting another piece (think Tetris).
Remove pieces, one by one, until only dark blocks remain (part of the "blue zone").
There's an undo button (in case you make a mistake) and a reset button (in case you get stuck and want to start over).
There are a ton of levers (2970 according to the app description) on three difficulty settings (Easy, Medium, and Hard). A checkmark indicates the puzzles that you've completed.
Overall, a very interesting puzzle game. If you are a fan of puzzles (like I am), I would recommend getting it.
Not much fun...
Not sure what this is all about…. I love to play Blockus, but this game is not like anything I have ever played. The directions make no sense and the tutorial is useless. Perhaps someone smarter than I am knows what is going on….
I agree it makes no sense and the tutorial is worthless. Even reading the reviews of the people that "get" it doesn't help. Nothing like blokus.
