What's New in Version 1.605
Bug fixes for iPhone 5.
So far it seems to be a pretty cool game
This is an interesting game so far. The graphics and sound could've been ripped right out of a Megaman title for the original NES. I haven't updated yet (it fixes my main gripe - no landscape support) because I want to make sure the newer version doesn't break something I'm used to or insert ads.
I'd definitely consider it for .99. It is a bit shady that the developer is using the "unlock this piece of the game by posting a review" crap. That's why I marked it down to 4 stars. It floods the market with reviews that people can't necessarily trust. Some developers will tell the user they will get the unlocked item if they post a FIVE star rating and imply anything lower won't work.
Why you should get The Blocks Cometh
The Blocks Cometh is very fun : with its unlock able heroes, addition of a weapon, and fun gameplay. There are two arrows for moving left and right, an "a" button for jumping and a "b" button for shooting/slashing your weapon. If you've ever played Tetris'd, you have to move around and dodge blocks just like in The Blocks Cometh, except they added a gun or whatever weapon you might be carrying, so that if you're in a tight bind, you can destroy the blocks around you and continue playing. There are also heroes that you can unlock if you follow the instructions exactly. The instructions are under the hero.
Simple concept done in complete style!
UPDATE: There are now 9 characters to choose from and 4 game modes (basically 4 difficulty levels for the one basic game)! Unlocking all of the characters can be a bit of a chore so the devs have included a $1 IAP shortcut for those so inclined.
Jump atop blocks to get high as possible before getting squashed. You can use tilt or button controlled movement to suit your own personal preferences. As the game goes on the blocks start dropping more frequently and at a faster rate. I love how not only are the achievements used to unlock characters, each of these unlocked characters play differently (unique attacks, jumping style, speed, etc.).
