Jelly Blocks


Jelly Blocks

7/10

Hooray! A puzzle game! Everybody loves puzzles and this puzzle game is pure-bred. Jelly Blocks is a simple game in which the object is to join all the blocks of the same colour together. Use the arrow keys to control the blocks, making all of them move, if possible, in the direction you press. Once two blocks of the same colour meet, they are joined for life and now move as a single unit, so those blocks can become trapped between unmovable blocks which can be both a blessing or a curse.

A simple premise, and I’ll admit I was a little skeptical as the game appears to be decisively simple and easy to begin with. Soon enough, however, the game gets tougher and the need for logic soon increases requiring you to think a little about which buttons to press in which order. Because of the simple nature and versatility of the game, almost every level (if not all) can be completed in different ways. This can make one level seem difficult and the next absurdly easy, depending on how you think.

Graphics-wise, it’s simple, cute and effective and I thought it worked well, there’s no need for elaborate graphics. There is no music in this game, and only one sound effect whenever you press an arrow. Thankfully, alongside the reset puzzle button, there is also an undo button that you can press as many times as you like if you make a mistake, without you having to start all over. There is an auto save feature, so you can come back and play any level you’ve completed or try and finish all 100 levels of the game. Although, after the first 30 I was getting a sense of déjà vu.


8/10. Doesn’t need to be any more complicated. Works well.


7/10. A light game with moderate reply value that’s easy to learn and play.


3/10. No sound and no mute to stop that horrible clicking sound.


8/10. Pretty cool concept, but needs something more to engage people.


9/10. Arrow keys and two letters. Could it be more simple?

So, overall it’s a basic puzzle game that’s easy to play.

    jelly? inferior to marmalade. As to how there are no marmalade puzzling games, this’ll do.
