FLUXE reverses traditional falling-block gameplay by putting the player in control of which pieces drop. Tap the piece that you want on the right side of the screen, and it falls in the well on the left. No need to slide or rotate. It's very simple, and perfect for a touchscreen!
See how many levels you can complete and how many points you can rack up along the way! Store up bomb and refresh tiles to help get through the tougher short levels. Complete challenges to earn achievements that multiply your score! Battle your friends on the leaderboards!
Fluxe is easy to pick up, but hard to master. Think carefully when choosing your blocks! Four difficulty modes keep it challenging and fun for everyone!
If you like falling-block games, you should defintely check out FLUXE - it's a very different take on a fun genre.

A very original take on Tetris like gameplay!
It's clearly Tetris inspired but with some cool innovative twists.
-While you can't rotate or move the pieces you drop in the well, you get to choose from all available pieces to find just the one that best fits your current need.
-Each of the game's achievements you unlock increases the point multipliers. I myself went from x1 to x7 in just a few games!
-While the pit is only 4 spaces wide, I love how the game uses some really wild shapes (not just the standard Tetris set by any means).
-If you manage to empty your pit of pieces on the right before it gets refilled, you can get a nice bonus!
It's quite fun
It really makes you change your strategy on a block dropping game.
I would like to see gravity in place for pieces that are no longer resting on another piece, so they can drop down and fill the holes below them, creating chains of completed lines.
Also, even though it works fine on an iPad in 2x mode, I wouldn't say "no" to Universal and retina.
Challenging and fun!
It's certainly hard to master, but it's a very good game. Since I'm not very good at puzzle games I'll never be very good at it, but I'm sure there are others out there who can master it. Also, it's definitely better than Tetris :P Great job again, Black Jacket!
