Blocktagon - 100% Original Puzzler

Hey guys, my name is Jon, and I'm the developer for Blocktagon.

Blocktagon is an entirely original puzzler, and what I mean is that when you play the game you won't say to yourself "oh this is just another x clone". Of course I might be wrong, but I haven't seen anything close to this game.

So the objective of the game is to clear the grid, and you have 100 levels. You've got six different block pieces:

As you play the game, new blocks are gradually introduced to you. And you'll hit some in-game help to show you how the blocks work like so:

Towards the later levels, the game becomes really challenging:

But don't worry, you've had to beat levels a lot easier so by then you're in the groove:

You'll get a much better sense of how the game works through the promo video:

I hope you guys (and girls) like my game, I look forward to hearing your suggestions, questions, or just chat about the game. Also, I'm working on a free version that includes the first 15 levels, but the game will go up in price when the free one comes out.

Admins if you see something wrong with the post, it wasn't my intention. Just give me a shout and I'll fix it for you. Thanks all!

99 cents this week, 5$ next week, but the free version comes out next week

Finally, a brand new 100% original puzzler.

Blocktagon is an entirely new, unique, and original
puzzler. The objective of the game is simple: clear
the grid. Blocktagon is appropriate of all age
groups, as it gradually introduces into the world of
Bloacktagon. You’ll be constantly refreshed,
because the levels keep reinventing themselves!

Game Features:

-100 levels that gradually become more challenging
-Refreshing original gameplay
-In game help makes learning new blocks a sinch
-Six entirely original block pieces: Soft, Hard, Bomb,
Restore, Jumper, and Void
-Completely original and catchy music,
or listen to your own music while you play

and beautiful colors

It is fun

It should be a standard feature that you can turn on/off in-game music and sound effects separately in all games

Yeah I had a guy play it on the iPad, and i won't edit his response:

"works great on the iPad. scales well, some pixelation on the fonts, but no big deal. THe blocks are the perfect size on the ipad. i'll post a review on itunes when I get a chance. "
