Blocked - A forgotten game?

http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=289903775&mt=8

Will this game be updated with more levels?
I love it, but its still version 1.0

This game was crazy good....don't know why they haven't done anything with it since it came out. A lot of people liked it, got good reviews, and was even featured. Maybe they were happy with how much money they made and just decided to work on other projects?

edit: actually I think the dev is on this forum...I vaguely remember him posting something in a thread regarding how much apps make or something

i've beaten it several times now ;P

i think it was one of those "phases" like icopter where people saw other people playing it on their ipods and said OMG i want that

it still is really fun though :P there's too many similar games now

ParkingLot has more levels but that's about it.
"Enjoy the game with 470 puzzles and nice graphic." I think the sentence sounds funny.

I've actually never beaten level 100 though,

What I've found though, Blocked runs the smoothest and looks the best.


I hope the creator releases more levels

I still don't understand the fascination with this title...
Isn't it just one of those games where you slide pieces to try to get one main piece out?
If that's the case, then why are people glorifying it to death? There's plenty of titles on the AppStore that do the same thing, why haven't they received fame?

Why do only some of the hundreds of Tower Defense games receive fame?
Why do some of the thousands of PC First person shooters receive fame?

Cause the game is good...

TD and FPS games usually do different things as to stand out among the rest. All block-escape clones do the same thing, it's kind of hard to diffirentiate a game that only has one goal. Why is it any better than the others out there?
