HypnoBlocks is my favorite kind of game. It is fast paced and simple to get the hang of, but challenging enough to be truly addictive.
Playing on a 3D field, you need to tap as many of the same colored blocks within your puzzle as you can in order to eliminate them before the timer runs out. This would be a lot easier, if as you eliminated blocks, others didn’t fly in from the periphery to block and change your plans. This means you really need to think and strategize on the fly.
The levels start off easy and get progressively harder as you move forward, giving you more of a challenge the longer you play. As you improve, try to get as many blocks as you can at once to get bonuses and watch your score sky-rocket!
The graphics are really quite fantastic, giving the appearance of being multi-dimensional and futuristic without being too complex. I really recommend playing this game in the dark, the neon qualities and metallic contrasts really look their best in low light.
Integration with Game Center gives the added incentives of accumulating achievements and sharing high scores.
What I liked: The interface is responsive and well designed. You can twirl your puzzle with one hand, tapping on the blocks you want to zap away with the other.
What I didn’t like: The game is very repetitive. While this adds to the trance style addictiveness, I think it would have really added something if there were additional obstacles or surprises to contend with as well.
To buy or not to buy: If you like the kinds of mindless games that have you wondering what happened to the last few hours once you start playing, this is an excellent game to try!
