Okay since nobody else will... I'll bite... what's the "Blocked" in-app purchase (IAP)?

What's so great about it that it forces Lord Gek to overload his iTampon? Those things can't only absorb 8 pages or so and then you have to replace them.

Cheers,

Joe

Yep, and I found out the hard way it's not good to store it "internally".

It is a fun variant LWB introduced in the original that introduced bombs and debris pieces (can't be cleared other than a bomb blast but are worth some decent pointage to destroy). So not a radical change to the original game but definitely fun. Was there more to it than the addition of the two new pieces, LWB?

It's an alternate gameplay mode, which is currently only available as IAP on the iPhone version, but may show up on the iPad version in the near future. Same general rules as the Classic mode, but with the addition of Bomb blocks, and Wall blocks. Wall blocks are scattered on the screen along with the normal blocks, but they cannot be removed without using a bomb. Bombs are earned by destroying a number of normal blocks, and/or making combos. Scoring is higher in Blocked, and the strategy is different, as you have to plan around the Wall pieces, instead of just going for maximum combos.

Oh, I had no idea you EARNED the bombs from skillful play! I just thought they showed up randomly like any other piece.

Nope, just need to break a certain number of blocks (I believe it's in the teens), or make a combo, and a bomb will be added to the queue.

Thanks! Some people are comparing it to Tetris, but with a dangerous twist. Probably about as different from TanZen as you can get, but I still like it.
