Review – Groovin’ Blocks

Groovin’ blocks is a standard puzzle game with a new twist. The challenge is to line up three blocks of the same color to make them disappear and the twist is to drop those blocks to the beat of some cool techno music. It has over fifty levels and twenty original songs.

The interface is simple to use and easy to learn, even though the experienced and hard settings might make you want to pull your hair out. As you score higher and higher you earn stars which then unlock fifteen levels of power-ups. If you can keep the game going and not have your blocks reach the top before the song ends, you can then advance to the next level.

For those of you that hate going it alone, you can have a friend grab a controller and go head-to-head to see who’s the best or work together in co-op mode. There’s also a handicap mode for when you know who’s the best, and just want give the other players a chance to win.

Groovin’ Blocks is a great game for those players that enjoy the likes of Lumines or bejeweled, and playing to the beat of some cool techno adds to the experience. If you are colorblind, no need to shy away from the game either since it has a colorblind mode that uses shapes and colors together so that everyone can join in.

You may think you have played this game before by another name, but give it a try as it’s worth the low price tag.
