Unfortunately, BLiX is no longer available to play online. This review and walkthrough are left as an archive.
Next up is this great little puzzle game, BLiX, with stylish pixel graphics and addictive gameplay created by gameLab, of New York City.
Click the cells to create blocks that deflect the moving ball into the center cup. It looks easy and is simple enough to get started with, but quickly becomes a challenge to get it right. The trick is to find paths in the patterns that will direct the ball(s) to the goal. Time counts down via a ring around the play field that slowly closes in on the center. Once it reaches the goal, the game is over. For every 5 levels you complete you are given a password that allows you to start a new game at that level.
Add together flashy pixel graphics, a compelling techno soundtrack, and gameplay that is deceptively challenging, and you wind up with an excellent little Shockwave game called BLiX.
