Blocktagon - a minimalist arcade game (Coming Soon)

Hello all, we are Gentleman Rat, an indie game studio of 3 people. We are excited to show off our minimalist arcade game, Blocktagon.

In Blocktagon, the goal is to spin the central hex to match the colors of the incoming blocks. As the game progresses the challenges increase and things can become quite hectic. Collect special blocks to heal or even grow your wall for extra protection. If a block reaches the center it is game over.

The game will be available (very) soon on both the App Store and Google Play.

Features
Endless waves - play as long as you can stay alive
Different themes to customize look
Social connect to share scores

Blocktagon will be free but does have IAPs and in game ads. We really didn't want to go overboard with either of those so IAPs are strictly for cosmetic changes and those can also be earned by watching optional video ads. There is an IAP to turn off popup ads, but we also didn't want those to become overwhelming so we limited how often they appear.

Thank you.

We are going for smooth simple controls but lots of challenges as the game progresses. Our intention is that it is fast and easy to get into a game and the game will last as long as your skill allows. The better your get at the game the further you can progress.

We also have in game goals to give players added challenges to overcome while playing.
