Doh! I assumed this WAS Critical Mass but they've changed it from a top score thing to a time based thing and each level's block arrangements are fixed (exact same colored pieces in the same place each time whereas in the PC version, while the shape of a level was always the same, the arrangement was randomized each time).

Here's hoping they can add a "Classic" mode in a patch.

Surprisingly UN-fun. Seems like an empty experience that needs a lot more gameplay hooks to make it interesting. For free it's fine I guess but three bucks and they cheaped out with a tiny loop that sounds like a keyboard demo? Seems like even the devs weren't invested in this.

As I whined, if it was even just the PC game they spun this off of it would be pretty decent.
