July 9, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

App Name:  Blocked Stone by mtoy

Description: Blocked Stone is a very addictive puzzle game. Offering 12000 levels, Blocked Stone for Android is the most exciting implementation of the popular Rush Hour game. Push the Red Stone to the right edge of the board.

How it works:  Blocked Stone is a very simple title. The object of the game is to move the red block on your screen from the left to the right. From the main menu, you can choose from: Play, how to play, my profile and Hall of fame. The last three options on the main menu opens up the web browser.The game offers you quite a few difficulty levels  ranging from very easy to crazy hard. The game mechanics are simple and the onscreen display is great. Sounds easy doesn’t it? Go try it!

Opinion: I didn’t believe that I would find a tittle with that would be consider more simpler than Tetris, then I ran into this title. Blocked Stone is more than meets the eye. Even in the first puzzle I had to move quite a few blocks to move the red block to the right side. Some simple games do not quite hold your attention nowadays but this one is not in that number. Take the challenge and get stone!

Ratings:

  • Speed (4/5) –  Very Smooth
  • Features (4/5) – Puzzle blocks
  • Theme (4/5) – Blocks, blocks and more blocks gets you puzzled
  • Overall (4/5) – Moving blocks is more challenging then I thought

Pro: Simple and difficult

Cons: Can we get some sound around here?

Overall: Great game and very simple to play.
