Blocnog

AllyDon't be fooled by names. While BlOCnog might sound like something you'd drink at a LEGO-themed Christmas party, and while it might look like an ordinary Sokoban game, BLOCnog is actually a cool, slick little puzzle game from Gameshot that combines the best of sliding block games, Tetris, and everyone's favorite pastime: sticking stuff to other stuff! You're a lone orange block who just loves sitting on top of red-and-yellow striped squares. But not all striped squares are created equal, and some are too big for you to cover up alone. Luckily, there are other orange blocks around, and you can adhere to them just by touching them! As you slide around with the [arrow] keys, gather up blocks to change your shape and get into the right configuration to enter the goal! Just remember that the stranger your shape, the harder it's going to be to move around the board without hitting things or getting blocked off! But don't get too stressed, because BLOCnog is a game that wants to make very, very sure you have fun with it, no matter how you play.

BlocnogThere's no restrictions on moves in these puzzles. Flail around all you like. There's also no grading system for levels; no matter how many moves you take to get there or how many seconds you put on the clock, as long as you make it to the goal, the game is happy. It'll even let you progress on to the next level if you die too many times in one stage! You can mosey through the levels as you see fit, and pick and choose which ones you want to complete. But the lenient approach to progression means that BLOCnog doesn't have to hold back one bit in the puzzle design! Thankfully, the game isn't 100% stumpers. BLOCnog does everything it can with its concept, which means it has a nice blend of level types and stages to suit all puzzling palates. Some levels are based around more traditionally Sokoban-esque concepts such as simply figuring out how to reach the goal, some are based on sticking the right number of other squares to yourself, and there are even a few "sculpting" challenges, where you'll have to carefully remove pieces from your body to fit into the goal. The relaxed progression means you can dedicate yourself to those puzzles that suit your fancy while skipping those that don't. BLOCnog is a perfectly relaxed little Sokoban game that tries its hardest to make the player happy, and darn if it doesn't work!

Great concept! I'm really enjoying this.

What a neat idea! I enjoyed solving the first 20 levels then it got overwhelming for my current state of mind. But It's a lovely puzzle.
