Block Knights

Has anyone else got it yet? it's pretty fun but I haven't quite mastered that learning curve. I got it while grabbing a bite to eat and am only now getting a chance to play

The basic quest mode is pretty simple. Pieces appear in the red square and you tilt the device to move them anywhere you like. Once stationary they stick in place.

There are little creatures with eyes called mobs and your job is to eliminate them but using them in a full line.

I haven't tried the other modes but I wanted to get a thread going for first impressions or questions.

at 5 bucks I don't think many people will just jump into it without having a few questions answered anyways

This game looks awesome. Definitely the price is a little steep and with the upcoming slew of games coming out this week its gonna be hard to spare some cash to check this out. Some gameplay footage may be enough to get me to buy this.

Erm, what slew of games are you referring to? The only one I can think of is iDracula, LightRiders?

I had wanted to try this, because it appears to be a souped up variant of a PC game I really like called Battle Of Tiles. However, the price was my no-go factor. Hopefully they have a lite version in the works.

Does anyone else think the artwork in the background of the black characters looks a little like Patapon?

I think my "buy eventually" list is over 200 games now. I think I need a raise at work
