Looks kind of cool and for a buck might have been tempted but a couple things throw me off - first you typo'd your title of the thread. If you are too anxious to check your work in making a thread I wonder what stuff you might have missed in game.

Second, a dev that rates his own game 5 stars is a put off to me. Of COURSE you think it is worth 5 stars - you don't think we already take that into account? Let the forum members rate your game - you made the game you don't have to and should not rate it.

So maybe if I let that stuff go and revisit the game later I won't be as agitated. Maybe then I will give the game a shot since it does look pretty cool and unique.

Actually, it's not just uncanny. Those blocks in the screenshot are a direct rip from the original Blockee. Hmm...

Well then there is the third strike for me.

Don't rip off another dev.

I'm not familiar this forum. I just clicked stars(of course 5) with no definite idea.
I'm sorry if it give umbrage to you.

It's too absurd. I also wonder why your images closely resemble mine.

Game Impressions

Oh come on, I'm willing to bet I can find other block based games featuring a block with big eyeballs. While I'll admit the dimensions are pretty similar, I'm not convinced it was a blatant rip of your icon.

Onto the game itself...

Mad Scott has taken the basic gameplay of "Same Corner Blocky" (real catchy name, not!) but really jazzed it up:

http://www.andkon.com/arcade/puzzle/samecornerblocky/

While your main goal is to clear out all of the eyeballs from the field via clearing them in large rectangles as possible of same colored corners, there are several other aspects to keep in mind.

1) You'll receive a time bonus for whatever is left on your time gage once you clear out all of the eyeballs.

2) Handy bonus items will appear which can only be claimed if they lie in one of the corners of the rectangle cleared. Since the unused items carry over from level to level, the ideal strategy is to grab many of them early on and save them for when things get tough in the later stages.

3) If all corners of a cleared group are eyeballs you'll get some extra bonus points for clearing the rectangle.

While I found the game great fun, I do have a few whines:

1) I don't think the game informs you when out of legal moves. A real general rule I think the dev should add in an update is that if there are no more power-ups in the player's toolbox and no legal moves on the board, the player should immediately be informed that the game is over.

2) There are no in game instructions.

3) Almost a subset of point #2, none of the handy items uses are explained in any way.

4) Once you click on a tool to use it I don't believe there is any way to then cancel your action before carrying through with it.
