Default Matchblocks - action-puzzles with minimalistic style

After Commander Pixman I liked to create something different. So here it comes: Matchblocks. Similar to color Tetris at first look, but this is totally different game with completely different gameplay. I think you never played something like this before.

Matchblocks is a fusion of action-puzzle games you know! Falling blocks and matching colors, sounds familiar? So now prepare for something new and for something you will have to touch!

Tap a color sequence to match colors in the blocks, remove them quickly before they overflow your board. Destroy obstacles on the board, collect bonuses and make combos. In this game not only your speed, but also smart thinking will let you achieve great scores!


Now come on, what do you think ?
Game is available now on NZ, will come in US by 22PM EST in Thursday and in Europe by 12AM GMT.

Initial promotional price is $0.99, $1.99 later! Universal app, with full iPhone 5 support! FREE version also available: Matchblocks Arcade!

Trailer:

Low bandwidth Version | Pop Up



iTunes Link:
( NZ only for now ) FREE version: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/matchblocks-arcade/id568700973

PS: Apologies about lack of screenshots on the AppStore! Something weird happened with iTC :/ I will reupload them before most of the world release, after I get back from work.

Commander Pixman is one of my favourite games on iOS, and while I'd love to play a sequel I will definitely get this game to support the dev.

I have played this game a lot so obviously like it, but I still really don't like the powerups and that's what keeps this from being really great to me. It's so frustrating when you're doing quite well and then get an "extra spawn" or "bigger blocks" which might as well be called "insta death". Not always, and sometimes I recover from what I thought would be death for sure, and that does feel nice, but sometimes it's also just impossible. It also seems completely random when they show up and I get the impression my highscores are more based on luck than on skill (also because of the good powerups of course. Those "smaller blocks" are very very helpful).

Like I said, I really do like this game. I am one of the few people who unlocked all the modes so far so that says something I guess. So, I really hope you'll consider adding a classic mode without powerups (and preferably without dice-circles as well). I do like everything else about classic mode, like the progression and the pace. Arcade is fun too, but it is much slower paced, Time Trial is hard, and Zen does not seem to be a game mode (as in: try to get a high score). Classic is really good, it's just those powerups that leave me frustrated after a game too often.

Ok Lena, I 'll consider to create a game mode especially for you Really.

You maybe right, "bad" things from 'enigmas' could be a little too bad in some cases. But one tip: you don't have to tap those 'enigmas' instantly, you can wait to the moment when you have small amount of blocks on board.

About Arcade mode: it is really fast paced later! Try to play longer maybe
