Android Apps Review: Future Blocks

Future Blocks is a very simple puzzle game for Android. The goal is to clean some of the same colored blocks on the screen, earning points. It has two modes: Triple and Sweep. In the first one, you just select three blocks with same color to be cleaned, while in the second one, all of the neighboring same colored blocks will be cleaned. There are 4 single and one multi-colored types of blocks. New ones come to replace the cleaned ones, making the game possibly endless. The game ends, however, when there are no three same colored neighboring blocks to be cleaned any more. There is hardly any strategy and thinking involved in this game, since at any moment the new blocks may completely change the playing field. The control is done through the touch screen, the track ball would not work.

Worth installing? Future Blocks is a decent way to kill a few minutes, waiting for the bus or being in class. However, it gets boring quickly and offers very limited experience. If you often need some short time waster, this might be your one.

What do I want to see in future versions? The top score is reset, when you exit the game. This should be fixed. Save game option, sound. Difficulty levels.

Rating: 4/10
