Some of you may remember a while back, I went through a phase of creating several 'Block' style games. Well... this is another one of those

This is actually a spinoff of our very first game we created with AppGameKit some 4 years ago. The main reason for this is primarily because we wanted to test out the Game Center commands (which are excellent by the way), but also because this game fits nicely in our 'Block' theme, and to be completely honest, I actually really enjoy playing this one... Very challenging, but also very addictive...

Game Center is really easy to implement I recommend it for sure, it really lifts the game. We have included a leaderboard and many achievements. Anyway, feel free to have a play and let me know what you think.

Hey there Funnell7, good to see you releasing a new game you know how much I like the block games!

I will download this as soon as my phone charges up to play tomorrow! Guess I won't be getting much work done

Downloaded. Played. I'm hopeless at it! Best score 13! Great little game though

Good work!

2 minor things: My phone got horribly hot playing this, which is odd considering how basic the graphics are. 2: I could not exit - the back button does nothing (which is sadly becoming the norm lately). Still a cool little game! I'd love to see a "Post mortem" on this - how much can a game like this make?

Cool, I really enjoyed the others.
I'll have to download it later, but I definitely will give this a try and give you some feedback.

Thanks all, I really appreciate you downloading and giving it a try

That's interesting, and kinda worrying lol... Not really sure what to do about that one, I've not experienced it myself, but I'll keep an eye out to see if anyone else experiences the same thing. Thanks.

Unfortunately that is now the norm, and something which Google actually advises. I'm with you though, I much prefer to have an exit button, I might add this back in at some point... Huge debate here;

Thanks again to all of you

Really like this game although I am rubbish at it and can only get a score of 7 at the minute
The menus work really well and the high scoring system etc is good, it all looks like a professional app.

Hope there are more blocky games to come

Rated on the app store.
