App description: "Blocks Hurt! is not only surprising as a game, it is a genuine pleasure to play. Its truly one of those rare indie games that are all too often overlooked." -- 148Apps

"Blocks Hurt! is one of those games that, no matter how much you read about it or hear about it from someone else, you just have to play for yourself to decide if its for you." -- The Indie Game Magazine

"Blocks Hurt! is a must have for fans of tower defence and matching blocks. Overall a fun, original game that is worth every penny." -- AppZilla

Each battle is a new battle! Game stages can have four different, exciting goals:

"Collect blocks": Match an exact amount of blocks while defending from monsters!
"Build the wall": use blocks to build structures. Destroy annoying creatures struggling to thwart your efforts!
"Survive time": Withstand hordes of monster for a short (but hard) time!
"Kill the boss": Destroy huge bosses, each with peculiar attacks and strategies!

You and your blocks are not alone in this battle against the evil forces: electrocute, freeze, disintegrate and slow down your enemy with special powers granted by monster juice!

Syntheticvoid, you are very kind and supportive. I really thank you (and the others 'very few' BH enthusiasts) for giving me the strength to finish this build.

From iPad version, i throw away all monetization crap like Kiip and even iAP (Now, if you found a level too difficult, you can simply skip it without have to pay for skip coins).

Moreover, as you foresaw in the past, kiip and other monetization service really didn't help the game...

Ruining the user experience for few bucks really don't worth.

Have fun!
