IncrediBlox is a falling blocks-style puzzle game that uses careful color matching to craft a smart little mobile release. The black IncrediBlox are turning everything to shadow, but you can stop them with a little creative maneuvering of the red, blue, and green blocks that fall from the sky. Your goal is to match up groups of four squares, creating combos whenever possible to score massive points and keep the screen clear. It's all very simple at first, but then, the actual incrediblox start to appear and real strategy sets in!
Instead of sticking to simple matching, IncrediBlox introduces special squares that do special things when matched up. The red blox, for example, burn all blocks to the left and right, while the blue blox grow large and eliminates adjacent squares with ease. The green incrediblox burrow down when matched, getting rid of squares below its current position. Toss these guys into almost three dozen levels and two additional modes of play and you've got the makings of a classic puzzle game!
The visuals looks great when taken on their own, but in motion, the papercraft look ends up a bit choppy. The block falling motion is painfully slow, leaving you staring at the screen while waiting for a tiny little square to reach the bottom. A quick-fall option is almost a necessity in this type of game! And finally, the controls leave something to be desired, as the blocks occasionally have a mind of their own and fall down columns far away from where you're touching. Despite these little hiccups, IncrediBlox comes through as a solid mobile puzzle game with a lot of personality!
