Sometimes it’s nice to just find a game that’s relaxing. A game where you can just sit down, play for a while, and you don’t have to worry about saving or going back to where you left off. Unfortunately this is not that sort of game. Sure it starts out easy and relaxing, but soon enough it becomes so much fun that you’re hecticly racing to solve puzzles in an addicted fashion. But that’s ok. I’ve been addicted to computer games for years. Anyhow, I’m proud to present in this rushed and hopefully unbiased review, Blocksum, the greatest puzzle hit, that I’m very proud to type in hype about.
So, I’m guessing you wanna hear about the game’s amazing and blessed story now huh? Story? Get outta here! You want a story, rent Bambi. This game ain’t gotta need no story to be like, rad and stuff, dude. It’s just...fine, man. Just fine. To translate, this is a fun game that stands on it’s own without a major story or characters. The gameplay is the major aspect of any puzzle game, and so that’s what it’s gonna be about. Don’t like that? Get outta here! The main point of the game is a Tetris style fun hour. Blocks of numbers come falling down, and to destroy them you must add blocks to create equal numbers of equally numbered blocks. Say you have a number three block. You need to make two other number three blocks by adding numbers together to make the right type of blocks. Then the blocks will be destroyed. Higher numbers right up to ten show up depending on the level. Sound too hard? Get outta here!
Alright, while passing this off as a normal review without cock-eyed opinions, I’m going to discuss the sound and graphics of this game. The graphics consist of many different abstract backgrounds and of course, numbered blocks. So for a puzzle game, the graphics are very professional, like famous puzzler Bejeweled or some such game. The music is futuristic and techno in its tone, which keeps you at an addicted yet relaxed beat, even if the game is going nonstop since the time you select “start game”.
So to conclude, this review wasn’t long, because even though it’s an almost professional game, it really is very simple, and doesn’t need a bunch of words to describe what it’s really about. Fun. Words aren’t fun, but this game is VERY fun, and, plus being educational and forcing you to use your mind, it’s also very relaxing and addicting. Going past my guarantee that you won’t be able to put this game away, (DON’T FORGET TO EAT AND SLEEP), I will even give this game a total of 5 unbiased stars. Enjoy.
