Block Rogue

DoraIn Buzz Monkey Software's deceptively simple and devilishly addictive little fantasy-themed sokoban puzzler Block Rogue for iOS and Android, you're setting yourself up for adventure, boulders, beasts, lasers... and that's the good news! You awaken on the floor of a mysterious tomb unable to remember who you are or what you were doing, but a helpful magic mirror on the wall informs you that you were searching for a powerful magical tome with one big side-effect: amnesia. With no way out but forward, you'll have to utilize your incredible brain and block-pushing skills to press all the switches in each room to keep moving onwards. In each stage, the magic mirror will have something new to tell you about yourself and your task, but with 325 potential puzzle rooms to solve and a randomized option for endless other variations, you might be trapped down here a while.

Block RogueJust swipe to move your hero one space in that direction. The goal in each room is to press all the switches with blocks and the like to open the paths to the next rooms. If you mess up, you can choose to undo your last move, or reset the entire room. Pretty simple, right?... riiiight up until they start adding the switches, the rolling boulders, the lasers, the niggling notion that maybe magic talking mirrors are a little suspicious... Each room has two doors to choose from when you finish it, and although you'll only have to beat twenty-five of them in a single playthrough, there are a whopping 325 rooms to encounter. Well... actually a bit more than that since Block Rogue features the option to get randomised puzzles, which extends the replayability of this one by rather a lot.

Block Rogue is one of those little gems of puzzle gaming in that it succeeds so brilliantly at what it sets out to do. The gameplay is easy to grasp with adorable cartoon visuals, and introduces just enough new elements at the right pace as you progress to keep things challenging no matter what difficulty you're playing on. Repetitive? Probably. If you're not enough of a sokoban fan to play a game that consists entirely of them you might want to pass this one by. But if you want a whole lot of gameplay bang for your buck and the ability to play a polished and gorgeous little puzzle title effectively forever, then this one is definitely worth checking out.

NOTE: This game was played and reviewed on an HTC One S. Game was available in the North American market at the time of publication, but may not be available in other territories. Please see individual app market pages for purchasing info.
