Welcome to Rota⋅Bloxx!

USE THREE FINGER TAP TO ACCESS IN-GAME MENU

★ iPad support.
★ Retina display support.
★ In-game tutorial.
★ HUD overlay now present in all grids.
★ General improvements.


★ How to play:

The game presents you with a grid where you will see Bloxx & a target. There are four different types of Bloxx and they may or may not have a gem attached to them. The aim is to move the Bloxx with the attached gem to the target square. The target square is the flashing chequered grid location.

☆ Ruby⋅Bloxx move continuously until they are obstructed.

☆ Aqua⋅Bloxx move continuously until obstructed, but they leave a trail behind them. This can pollute the grid so choose your move wisely. The trail can also be used to your advantage to reach previously unobtainable locations.

☆ Jade⋅Bloxx only move one square at a time. They have the ability to push other Bloxx out of the way which is essential to reach the target on some grids.

☆ Pearl⋅Bloxx are affected by gravity. If they are resting against a wall, you can move them left or right. Once they have an empty space below, they will fall.

☆ This game utilises device orientation. This means that you can affect gameplay by rotating the device. The Pearl⋅Bloxx fall downwards but you can rotate the device so they fall in a different direction. Four orientations are used; portrait, landscape & their opposites. So the Pearl⋅Bloxx can fall in four directions, depending how you have the device orientated.

☆ Grip tiles will stop Bloxx in motion. For instance, if a Pearl is falling onto a Grip, it will hold the Pearl for one move.

☆ Holes will remove Bloxx from play. Use them wisely to remove obstructions.

☆ All grids must start in the landscape orientation. If you use the quick restart button, the game will ask you to rotate the device to landscape to begin gameplay.

☆ As each levels begins, you see a gold star with a number in the centre. This number is the maximum moves required to get a gold star. The other icon is to inform you that the grid has rotation enabled or disabled. To add variety and more thought to puzzles, grids are either rotatable or static.

☆ When you begin each grid you will see a restart icon and a move counter. Use the restart icon to quickly retry the grid if you make a mistake.

★ Controls:

☆ Use a swipe gesture to move Bloxx. Place your finger onto the block and swipe in the direction you want it to go.

☆ Use a three finger tap to access the in-game menu. For there you can quit, restart or continue.

☆ Tap the restart button to quickly restart the grid.

★ Tips:

☆ If you are having trouble getting the device to recognise the orientation, tilt the device upwards so the direction of in-game gravity points to the floor.

☆ If you have less Gem⋅Bloxx than targets, then the restart icon will pulse with an exclamation mark. This is informing you that the level cannot be completed. Tap the restart icon to try again.

★ Support:

Not in the short term. I need to find a skilled video editor to help me with that one

Don't blame you for being on the fence though, it is an acquired taste ... feedback has been varied.

Funny that you say that. I happen to LOVE acquired tastes.

Well I downloaded it and played an hour. What a charming little puzzler! I do find rotating my iPad a tad cumbersome so I'll go ahead and install it on my iPhone 4.

Thank you and well done!
