"Groovin' Blocks works its way under you skin with a neat combination of puzzle and beat-matching gameplay" -- Pocket Gamer UK

"Groovin' Blocks' musical / rhythm component really does set it apart from the pack." -- Touch Arcade

"Groovin Blocks on the iPhone is an absolute steal at a $1.99, which is six bucks cheaper than the WiiWare download. Without the music angle, Groovin Blocks would have faded into the crowd faster than you can say match three. But with the excellent soundtrack woven into the actual gameplay, Groovin Blocks provides a fun puzzle experience for music-minded gamers, especially those that appreciate electronic and chip tunes." -- Wireless IGN

I would hope the full is coming shortly after (by shortly, I don't mean weeks, I mean hours)

I have been waiting for this game for almost 3 weeks.
I have also been in contact with the developer on the "rejection" or "approval" status.

I played the lite version and now I know I love the game, come on Apple approve the full version already.
This is cruelty teasing me like this!!!

I heard about this game.........was supposed to be good, but it looks pretty typical. Can anyone who has tried it let me know if there is anything unique about this game? Am I missing something ?

It's sort of like columns, but you get extra points for dropping blocks on beat, and they destroy the same color by just being connected, plus powerups

The lite is free, you wouldn't lose anything to try it

That's a good question

another thing, when you set the difficulty higher, blocks also drop in square formation like in lumines

the full version is supposed to have a lot of music
the quality of the music is great, like lumines

Maybe I am old, but the lack of that feature will never come between me and a great video game. I grew up playing video games when nobody knew what the internet was.
I am 33 , but in video game years, I feel like I may be 63

I don't care if games have 'online' play either so I know I am a gaming senior citizen
