Review



blocks, tetris


Under the guise of a different name, once you start playing, you will instantly recognise that Blocks is basically a poor rip of of Tetris.



blocks, tetris


There are a few differences between the two, none of which are good. First of all, Blocks is in 3D, and the grid is positioned at an angle meaning it is more difficult to tell whether you have the blocks aligned in the right section. Second is the scoring method. In Tetris you can build up quite a high score, but in Blocks you will be struggling to reach double figures. This is because your score is based on the last level completed. I.E. if you complete two levels, then you will score two points. It is a bit confusing though, because when I reached level three, it showed my score at four, but then when I lost, my score went down.

To complete a level you have to clear a line, after which the blocks change to a different colour. The game ends when a block hits the ceiling of the grid.

A ghost from Pac-Man makes a cameo appearance, although he does no actually do anything. She just hovers at the side of the screen for no apparent reason.

The game is free to play on a Sony Smart TV with an internet connection, and can be accessed via the app menu.
