Thanks to all the wonderful submissions coming in, I have found myself backlogged with reviews to post. Hopefully I can get caught up today and throughout the weekend, so check back if you've been waiting for something new to play. =)
And while this next game is not new, the talented folks at Bloc Media have recently changed it from a limited 3-level demo to a fully playable, free Web game.
Stackopolis is surprisingly simple to play: Just click on blocks to move them into the target configuration for each of the 20 unique levels. A 3-dimensional view is provided as well as a top-down blueprint that identifies the number of each block that is required for each cell of the play field grid.
To add some tension and a bit of challenge to the mix, a timer counts down the seconds you have to complete each level. If you fail to meet the target configuration within the time limit the game ends.
Stackopolis features elegantly simple gameplay, gorgeous pixel graphics and animations, and a delightfully dramatic soundtrack that pushes this game over the top into highly addictive territory. You've been forewarned.
With thanks to Timothy and Capuchin for suggesting the game. =)
