Sometimes, when you want to play a game on your smartphone, you don’t need complicated graphics or confusing gameplay just to entertain yourself. All you need is a seemingly simple instruction that will challenge you as the game progresses and may just frustrate you a little bit in order for you to keep going on. Bloq, a new game for Android devices may be the game for you, if what we’ve just said is your criteria for a great game.
“It will definitely waste your time very nicely,” is a cheeky “review” that they put on their game page (along with an “I like it” from the developer’s mom) and it is probably an apt description for Bloq. The main idea is for you to slode the colored blocks into their matching targets, but your movement around the puzzle will be limited by the blocks, errr, blocking your progress. As the game goes along, you’ll find blocks with multiple colors, sticky blocks that refuse to move and some of the puzzles even wrap around the screen (I wonder how it will look like on a Samsung Galaxy Edge).
The game has 40 “mind bending” levels to challenge and frustrate you. Don’t worry, it’s not Flappy Bird level of frustration, just enough to not bore you. Graphics are pretty minimalistic and simple, with the ambient music soothing so you will not get agitated when that block just won’t slot in.
You can download Bloq for free from the Google Play Store. There are some in-app purchases, but mostly to get rid of ads that will interrupt your gameplay.
