TwoBlocks now FREE - another sliding blocks game

Just saw this on the Price-Drops feed...

The graphics don't look anything special, and I know there's a whole load of other sliding blocks game, but I thought this one might interest some people, because (apart from the fact that it's free for a limited time) it has a twist on the usual formula in that this time you have to get *TWO* blocks to slide out.

There would also appear to be quite a few puzzles included, with the developer saying there are now 4,000 layouts!

Looks sweet, but I think I'll stay with blocked for now. I'm still trying to beat the medium levels on that

Unblock me Lite has 600 free levels...I've only done 125 or so.

Still, free is free! Good find!

Thank you!

I was in the middle of working my way through the lite version, so this is a major bonus!

Just tried it.

Plusses:

-There is a unique element to this compared to other rush hour puzzles. The blocks dont slide out completely...one square of them goes into a goal area, which can double as a holding pen for one square of a block. So you dont actually just have a square board to work with...the holding areas can be used temporarily to enable further shuffles.

-There are 20 intro levels, 1600 easy levels, 1600 medium levels, 600 hard, 200 hardest. That is a lot, and even the easy levels arent necessarily a snap to solve in the minimum number of moves.

-each level tells you the optimum number of moves. You can solve in more, but you have a goal to shoot for.

Cons:

-Graphic scheme is fairly unattractive

I couldnt see paying for this title, given the ugly graphics, but at free its a no brainer.

The font used in this game seems damn popular among iPhone games... is it built into the device?

I've noticed that too.
