There are 3 EXTREMELY easy levels in the lite version. Since there is only 20 levels in the full version, I am worried most of them would be similar in simplicity. While the graphics look good and I see no real flaws in the gameplay. I think I'll stick with the teeter blox game which is free right now. While it doesn't have the abillity to spin around like this game does, the pirce is right, for the same number of levels. With an update to around 50 or 75 levels it might be worth it. Only 20, it is hard to spend 1.99 for the game, that I could probably finish in one sitting. I do appreciate lite versions, but it seems sloppy for the dev to include 3 simple levels, without giving us an idea of the challenge of the game if there is any.

So this game is basically a completely 3d version of teeter blox then?

Sucks that it only has 20 levels, game looks interesting, but I think I'll pass.

i won't say completely, but it is very close. teeter offers more varied shapes, where as this is all blocks (short, long, fat). neither is a bad thing, just personal pref, i like the different shapes personally. if you really like this genre, then this game might be a good choice. blockbuster has a refractory period between when you can get rid of blocks. so unlike some games you can not quickly get rid of two blocks, which does add to the difficulty.

they are close enough to be in the same genre, yet each game does have some differences, enough to justify getting both if this is your type of game, as long as the levels do get more challenging.

I tried the lite, and thought it was OK. I prefer Teeter Blox. I think I may hold off though because 20 levels is just not enough for a game like this.

There seems to be a wave of these minimal level games coming out. I guess it's an economic thing? I don't know. I finished Teeter Blox in about 15 minutes. It just doesn't even feel worth the download for such short games.

Unless we're talking difficulty levels like Theseus or Blocked, these types of "quick" puzzles need to have a ton of levels. There are sokobans out there with 500 levels... and sokoban games can get pretty tough. Granted, I know that these types of 3-D physics games are more complicated to develop, but it doesn't change the consumer gameplay aspect.

Hello all,

Thank you for the feedback, we do have many more levels planned for either an update or a second version of the game in the near future, and yes, the difficulty does get much more difficult by the end of the game.

We will take all feedback into consideration, so keep it coming!!
