Like Tetris, But Trickier
Block games are all about coordinated elimination. How do you like to play? There are block puzzle games, which are perfect for lovers of Tetris, games where you mine blocks, and other brick games to choose from.
Some games have you fitting together falling blocks, where you're under extra puzzle pressure as the blocks pile up faster and faster. 2020! and others ask you to do the same thing, but in 3D, stacking a table with colored block shapes.
Or block-eliminating games, like Squares 1, ask you to break down the pile one monochromatic set of colored blocks at a time. Or play the same way with extra stess-relief properties with the calm-inducing, balloon-popping The Poppit Stress Buster. Meanwhile, block games like Drop Blocks add extra explosions to the usual gameplay for a different kind of stress release. In games like Deep Voyage, it's all about swapping to match together rows and columns of the same blocks, and get rid of them that way.
The Match-3 gameplay goes beyond blocks (and balloons), too. Try mixing, maxing, and eliminating jewels, globs, and other shapes. And then choose your setting of choice: there's many a mine to choose from, but also fantasy settings infused with magic, ancient slices of Asia, and wild (and growing increasingly wilder) hippie-friendly gardens, to name a few.
So, is it a block-fitting puzzle or a brick-eliminating mine you're looking for? You've got well over 100 choices. What's your new colored blocks game addiction? (Although you probably won't know until you try them all for yourself.)
