The history of the puzzle genre is built in coloured blocks. There have been other shapes - ones with rounded edges or gem-like appearances - but the simple square will always hold a place in the heart of puzzling aficionados.
BloxBox continues that tradition of four-sided uniformity but it adds a few new twists, some sensible touchscreen controls, and a level-shifting mechanic. The result is an engaging, albeit brief puzzling experience.
The aim of the game is to get a white block onto a yellow one. You move the white block by swiping across the screen. It'll move in the direction you swipe - left, right, up, or down - until it hits an obstacle or gets caught by one of the various gates that fill the levels.
With a bit more content, BloxBox could be a classic. As it is, it's just highly recommended
