Denki Blocks! Imminent!

Hello gamers!

We at Denki would like to introduce our latest digital toyset available very soon for iPhone, iPod and iPad: Denki Blocks!



The multiple award-winning puzzler is back in a new sticky form!

Denki Blocks! is a puzzle game like no other. Slide sticky blocks around a board and join the same colours together to solve puzzles. BUT! There are two important twists that make this game so special:
1. All blocks not fixed or obstructed will slide.
2. Blocks of the same colour stick together when they touch.

There are many different types of puzzles to solve. Some focus on satisfying sorting. Some feel like defusing a bomb. Others are like lock mechanisms. All are guaranteed to get your neurons firing.



This latest version features some of the finest Denki Blocks! puzzles ever made. They are carefully balanced for beginners and experienced players alike.

Features
* Over 100 beautiful puzzles to enjoy, each hand-crafted for maximum pleasure.
* Beat awesome Master Challenges such as making a special shape, making two or three identical shapes, beating move or time pars...
* Complete over 100 Master Challenges to earn Denki Stars and open up secret puzzles.



* Enjoy our delightful audio or listen to your own soundtrack.
* Solve the puzzles to reveal pretty pictures.

This post is your place to feedback to us at Denki with your thoughts, problems, suggestions and questions about Denki Blocks! We value your feedback and want to make the most fun, Denki games possible. This can be achieved with your help: the fans.

Send your feedback to support@denki.co.uk.

We’ll update the post with new media released and we’ll upload a direct link to iTunes where you can buy Denki Blocks! directly, when it’s available.

A special gift from Denki will accompany the release of the full version of Denki Blocks! in the form of the Free Version. The Free Version let's you keep the first set of puzzles and play to your hearts desire. If you decide you want even more, your progress will be carried over to the Full Version if you have OS 3.0 or higher. Bonus!

I remember this game from the GBA days. I've still got it, albeit on my PSP now.

Is this version going to offer anything new compared to the existing version? As in new puzzles, and perhaps even extra sets purchasable as DLC?

Thanks for your questions.

There are actually multiple versions already available of Denki Blocks! across a number of formats including GameBoy Color, Sky Interactive and GameBoy Advance. The iPhone, iPod and iPad version is considered the most refined version with what we consider the best puzzles and Challenges from each previous version.

Approximately three quarters of the puzzles in the new version will be considered 'new', if you have only played the GameBoy Advanced version. There are also new Challenges to achieve.

Providing new puzzle sets to buy and download from within the application is something we have a strong desire to do but we wanted to get the core toyset right first, considering this is our first game for these formats.

I hope this helps.

Paul,
Denki Limited.

I see the free version listed on App Shopper, but can't find it on the US App Store.

Well done for discovering this information as the Free Version passed through submission and was only available for a very brief time earlier today.

We have taken the decision to hold back the Free Version until the Full Version has passed through submission and then we'll release the two versions together for consistency.

Shouldn't be long to go until you can get your hands on both versions!

Paul,
Denki Limited.

Sounds interesting, especially considering it's only 1/6 of the price.
