Block Shooter [rating: 4/5]
Block Shooter developed by Wode Mobile is a great puzzle game that will keep you entertained and going back for another quick play. Save the blue blocks and shoot at the evil red ones to play the game.
The game rules are easy to follow, on your screen you will find colored red blocks on a platform. You have to fire at them with a smiley face, a yellow ball. To do this you direct an arrow in the direction you want the ball to go. Once you are all lined up in position you let go, hopefully your ball with go where you had hoped and knock the red blocks off the platform and fall down.
Once you have completed a few levels the game then starts putting in the blue blocks you are trying to save. No matter what, they have to stay on the platform otherwise you will lose points. This does get harder as the levels progress, sometimes the red blocks are very near to the blue ones.
When you fire the smiley faced balls you have a choice of size; ranging from small to large. Obviously the smaller one isn’t going to knock off as much as the larger one. There are also balls made of different materials for example iron and rubber. Each ball offers a different kind of power.
There are lots of obstacles to stand in your way which makes the game very challenging for you. Every time you knock a red block you earn points, if you knock off a blue block you lose points. Every time you use a ball to aim and shoot you also lose points. So, the best method is to try and clear all the red blocks with as little balls as you can do it in. To get to the next level you have to earn a set amount of points, if you don’t then you will have to restart it until you do.
At first it wasn’t that clear what I had to do to move to the next level, it is not all about clearing all the red blocks away so make sure you keep an eye on what points you have. This way of scoring and moving on to the next level made the game slightly different to other physics puzzle games.
The Graphics are very cute and eye catching. The faces they have on the blocks will be loved by most people and are quite funny at times! The game also features some nice up beat music to get you into the spirit of the game.
Block Shooter is a fun pick up and play game for any age.
- Nice graphics and music
- Different to other physics puzzle games.
