Bloxorz

Categories: Games, Online, Puzzle, Video walkthrough   46 comments - June 23, 2007

BloxorzBloxorzBloxorz is a new “brain twisting puzzle game of rolling blocks and switching bridges” created by Damien Clarke (Jetspeed, Silversphere, The Missile Game 3D).

The aim of the game is to get the block to fall into the square hole at the end of each level. To move the block, simply use the arrow keys. Do not fall off the edges or you will have to restart the level. There are bridges and switches in many levels that can be activated when they are pressed down by the block. There are three types of switches: the heavy ‘X’-shaped switches that are activated when your block stands on its end on them, the soft ‘O’ switches, that are activated when any part of your block presses them and the teleport switches ‘( )’ that spilt your block into two smaller blocks at the time (these can be controlled individually and will rejoin into a normal block when both are placed next to each other).

When activated, ‘X’ and ‘O’ switches may behave differently. Some swap the bridges from open to close and vice versa while others will only ever make certain bridges open, and activating it again will not make it close.

Green or red colored squares will flash to indicate which bridges are being operated. Finally, your block can’t stand on its end on orange tiles that are too fragile to support its weight.

33 levels are available in Bloxorz. Write down the 6 digit level code for each stage and use the load stage option in the main menu to continue the game when you come back later.

Overall, Bloxorz is an excellent puzzle game, and sounds and graphics are just perfect. The author mentioned on his site that all levels are possible to finish! You know what to do now!

Have fun!

Bloc

BlocBlocIf you enjoyed Bloxorz, a “brain twisting puzzle game of rolling blocks and switching bridges” created by Damien Clarke, you might also like Bloc.

Ok, Bloc is just a blatant rip-off with only 16 levels in total, and it’s poorly done (check the tutorial and let me know where you find some “light green unstable tiles” in this game!).

Having said that, Bloc is still fun to play (not as fun as the original though). The whole concept of Bloxorz has so much potential, I wonder why we don’t see more games like this?

Have fun!

Flash Back: Dice Move

Categories: 5 minute, Flash, Free, Games, Online, Puzzle   1 comment - July 9, 2007

Dice MoveDice MoveDice Move is a puzzle game similar to the recent and excellent Bloxorz. The object here is to roll your dice around to be able to make it fit inside the invisible dice marker facing upwards. Use the arrow keys to move your dice around the playfield.

To spice things up, each level is timed, and you have only around 80 seconds to complete each of them, or the game ends immediately.

Unfortunately, there are only 5 levels to complete, so this one won’t keep you busy for more than a few minutes!

Have fun!
