Nev's One Minute Gaming 05 - Unblock Me

This week I've been playing a puzzle game called Unblock Me. It has a neat & clean design with a simple goal - move the various blocks around to clear a path for the red block to exit the board. The controls are super simple too - just touch and slide the block with your finger to move it.

There are 2 modes - relaxed or challenge mode. The only real difference I see is that in challenge mode, it keeps track of how many moves you use to finish a board so you can compete with yourself to improve.

There are four levels of difficulty available - beginner, intermediate, advanced and  expert - the main difference being the number of spaces available to move the blocks into.

There are also 1000's of variations and so far they have released extra puzzles up to expansion 8 - that's well over 5000 different puzzles in the beginner category alone!

If you like this type of puzzle game, Unblock Me will keep you quiet for hours! I give it an 8

If you have a game you'd like to suggest for me to try, you can contact me on Twitter @Nevahaddict or leave a comment here for me.

Thank you for listening and until next time - have fun!

  1. This game is a clone of a tabletop brain teaser game. I mentioned it on the Eviscerated Gaming Podcast #87 when you guest hosted with us. I couldn't the maker of the game on the show, but here it is now:

    Rush Hour is a cool game that I used to own, so I'm thinking this digital version as Unblock Me is pretty sweet too. These types of brain fitness / puzzle games are great for young developing minds and ThinkFun has a whole line of hand-ons similar brain games, most of which are excellent as both fun games and learning tools.
