Default Xmas Blox is now available!

Our new puzzle game Xmas Blox is now out! While it may look like a standard match 3 there is more going on. The Challenge mode has 27 levels of frozen patterns to break apart, and there are Fire and Snow items to help when you get stuck. Also has nice high res graphics for iPhone 4. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

We saw the snow power-up, so what does the fire one do?

Snow removes up to 9 bloxs in a square. Fire removes all bloxs of whatever type you touch. So Fire would blow up all Christmas Trees in the grid. Both items also break the frozen bloxs.

It is a good day to play some Xmas Blox while waiting for Santa to arrive. :-)

Anybody give the game a try yet?

Crap, I did and, being all distracted, forgot to get back to you.

I like the Endless mode with the only problem that it really does appear pretty endless. Is it supposed to be truly endless or is it that I'm just getting lucky and the difficulty ramps up REALLY slowly?

I'd think adding in a few more block types over time and or making it a little harder to earn new power-ups would make a huge difference.

I was wondering if I made the endless mode too easy. It was a lot harder originally. I had the percent of frozen bloxs higher and added in an extra block type later on. So thanks for the comments. I may need to go back and make it a little harder afterall.

I think the key is a progressive difficulty since, as it stands, other than adding an additional piece type at some point, the difficulty didn't seem to progress much. How about having the rate the frozen blocks spawn get higher and higher over time?
