Find something yummy and control the Brick Peoples' destiny. Your mission is to arrange, pile and stack bricks to guide hungry Brick People to the location of tasty fruit!

One of the most innovative arcade puzzle games from SEGA has now specially been made for iOS for the whole family to enjoy. The original game combines physical bricks that interact with a projection monitor, merging the digital and physical worlds.

Here's how to play:
Help your Brick People friends eat the required number of fruit. Build brick structures and steps for them to climb by touching numbered icons in a certain order. Take advantage of becoming familiar with each group of Brick People as they are all different, using their unique personality and movement ability will help you advance to more levels.

From time to time, a Brick Monster will cause trouble and create additional obstacles to challenge the Brick People. Overcome these obstacles and gain additional time for future missions. But be careful, dont run out of time or all bricks you piled will fall at once. Aim for a high ranking as once the game is over, your score will be announced.


Many Modes, Tons of Play
Single and competitive multiplayer mode to challenge between two players.Three difficulty levels available: Easy (Sweet Mode), Normal (Bitter Mode) and Hard (Spicy Mode)

Build with a Buddy
Brick People HD is made for the iPad. Two players can play individual games and compete face to face on the iPad for a real time battle!

All Hands on Deck
Supports multitouch as players dive into the game with multiple hands and finger

Frantic Fun with Mini Challenges
Complete as many missions in 150 seconds. Gain extra time on the clock by overcoming mini games from the Brick Monster

I really wish more Games would be Universial. As already pointed out Brick People/Brick People HD are two different Version and are charged differently...

Cool, I'll be grabbing the iPad edition!

Bugger, just checked my iTunes balance and I'm literally pennies short of the 1.49 ($1.99) asking price.

Aww man.

This looks a lot like Risky Challenge aka Gussun Oyoyo.

The Hardcore Gaming 101 article is interesting, as always:
Gussun Oyoyo is another sad example of a forgotten series that never caught fire beyond the shores of Japan. [...] Thanks to the whoring of Irem, there are three (and a half) takes on the same game done by completely different people. What's more, the franchise burned itself out with nearly a half a dozen entries in just three years.

So would you recommend it Sanuku?
Is there some kind of depth/ replayabillity to the game?

I really like Segas quirky arcade games and im on the fence already.

Would also be interested in any impressions of either this or the HD version. It looks like a game that could be fun to play in the 2-player mode with a child, but would like to hear more about difficulty, and whether it stays interesting (also in single player).

Any IAP?
10-04-2011, 07:47 AM
I don't recall any IAP.

I was a bit frustrated with the control mechanics on the bonus levels. Every couple of levels you had to form like a tangram type of shape and the brick would never drop where I wanted it to drop. I actually lost a couple because the time ran out and it was snapping to the wrong section.

That same moving the block issue came back to haunt me as I progressed through the game too. That was the reason I ended up stopping to play it. If I lose a level I want it to be cuz I failed not the UI. So in that regard - perhaps the iPad version is better; and second, not sure I would play with a child unless they are very dextrous and nimble with moving things on the screen.

Overall though the actual levels were pretty fun - though wasn't sure why if I put a brick on top of a whole bunch of them they magically appeared at the top of it. So some crazy stuff going on there - maybe there is actually a step behind or through the block I don't see?

Add: I forgot - it also resets from the beginning when you die. I am not sure if it is endless as I never reached an end but the same levels repeat and you can then end up flying through the beginning as you have now memorized them (like an arcade game I suppose) - but if you want to keep going at the harder levels you will have to spend the time repeating those easier ones to get to them.

To me the game was a miss but for those that like an arcade challenge I can see it being quite fun, especially if they get the controls straight. Really a great game and lots of action, just I don't like that starting over and memorization bit.
