Yes. It's another puzzle from the parking lot or daughter in a box genre. It's well made, fun and well worth the money with 100 levels. If you haven't played a puzzle from this genre before then try out lite versions of similar games. There are a few in the iTunes store.

Yes, it is worth it if you're into what I like to call "the parked car genre"

Yes it's worth it

It's worth it for a huge amount of levels; these are my top three sliding block puzzle games in order:

1. Theseus (remarkably addictive/logical and on sale for $0.99)
2. Cubicman Deluxe (great 3d graphics/polish and tough puzzles)
3. Blocked (polished but can be more of a guessing game sometimes until you're close enough to see the last couple of moves)

I suggest trying out theseus here (make sure you're not in Safari because I have a mac and it only worked on Firefox) to get an idea of the gameplay and if you like it, you will definitely enjoy the iPhone version. It is much more polished too so don't worry about those big ugly dots. Theseus will take months (my goal is by the end of the summer) to figure out the puzzles and there's tons of replay with the medal system.

There is no guessing. It's a puzzle, you work it out.

And it is fantastic.
