Blek is a unique game about imagination and personality. Everything you draw keeps moving – and watching your creations move is like watching magic.
The goal is simple: shape a line that collects all colored circles avoiding black holes on its route. There are no specific moves that you need to master. To every level countless solutions exist, from delightfully simple to exceptionally deep and complex, yet always elegant.

What's New in Version 1.8.1
iPhone X support
Bought just to hear the sound when you hit the black dots.
After reading several reviews about the sound when you hit the black dots, for $0.99 I had to hear it for myself (and I’ve grown to like drawing games).
This is a unique game from other similar games. You don’t draw a line to connect the dots and the lines don’t model physics and fall like they do in other drawing games, rather, they repeat. It creates a pattern. If you draw a squiggle then your squiggle will repeat the same motion AND the same angle. It bounces only if you “bounce” it when you are drawing. If you draw a straight line it moves in the direction like a worm until you hit all the colored circles or until it goes off screen or... hits the black dots. It’s unique and challenging but also relaxing fun.
So, what IS this awful sound that everyone complains about? Admittedly, I turned the sound down too but I don’t find it as off-putting as some. I think it’s the uncanny-valley style weirdness that makes it so disconcerting more than the sound itself. It sounds like several sounds mixed and it changes. There is a small “plink” sound in one with a light negative tone chime in another and similar sounds in others. The part that makes it “annoying” though is the overlay (I suppose that’s what you would call it?) of a female-sounding voice saying “ooh” or what sounds like “ay-oh” Or “ohhh” - but each sound is mixed with something so it’s hard to say exactly what it really sounds like.
This game is actually a lot of calm fun. I’m on the train playing it right now. The only negative thing I can say is, what is that sound effect when going into black holes? It is annoying. The sound heard when hitting colored dots is pleasant though. At least find a way to allow customers to mute only the back dot sound effect or something. Other than that, thanks for a good game.
Glad it was less than $1
maybe the game was just not my type. I love brain teasers and puzzle game, but i hate this. I’m disappointed that i actually waisted money on it, but thankfully it didn’t cost much. The sound effects are awful; I had to turn them off just to try and enjoy the game a little better. Every time I tried to start the line from the top it would try to save a picture. The fact that i couldn’t start a move without that happening was frustrating, that should be something they fix/change.
