Zen Blocks is relaxing new mix of Tetris with Match 3 for puzzle fans!

Zen Blocks is a new original take on the block puzzle game genre - mixing the mechanics of Tetris with some of the features of Match-3 to create an addictive new relaxing game. The execution of which is well suited to the constraints of mobile.

The player is required to launch a coloured block from the border of any side of the playarea, the current colour of the block is indicated by the block shown just above the score.

The launched block attaches (or sticks) to each block it connects with in the playarea, as long as there is an empty space for it. This can be used to double-up a colour combination - or it can make the player’s task a little harder to complete by adding unmatched colour blocks. It depends on the strategy used in placing the blocks or in the direction chosen to launch from.

If blocks of the same colour group together in sizes of 4 or more then they can be eliminated by colliding with them directly. Blocks can group in lines or touch diagonally on corners. Removing groups of 5, 6, and so on provides bonus moves (or time) to the player.

The gameplay rules are such that certain strategies are only realised by the player as they progress through the levels and discover how certain groupings can be used to gain more moves in the most efficient manner. The game is simple to start with but is deceptively harder than it looks.

Another interesting mode of play is the ‘Timer’ mode that trades in the relaxing take-your-time strategy for more of a Blitz-mode pressurised game. This is a lot of fun for a quick game and is like a second game included within Zen Blocks.

The Zen Blocks game design was partly conceived due to limitations from the Low Rez Jam - but was then held back from the jam by the developer, Gazzapper Games, so that it could focus on creating the mobile version.

The game is available in free (download) and paid (download) versions on Google Play.

Be sure to check out the video of the game in action here too, and you can even grab a code for the paid version of the game below - be fast though, as it's first come first served!
