Tetris meets a sliding puzzle in Tricky Block

July 1, 2015

If you are a true puzzle-lover and ready for a challenging game, then Tricky Block is for you. This fast-paced game has you sliding colored squares, grouping them together, and then shifting to make more room.

Tricky Block basics

When the game begins, you will see colored squares on a conveyor belt at that top that are dropped onto the game board. As they fall, you need to slide them to other spots on the board to make groups, or shapes, of the same colors. Not only must you do this in order to score, but also to shift that newly-formed shape to a different spot on the board to make room for the continuing falling squares. This is why it is reminiscent of Tetris, the classic shape-shifter. Once your board is full, you are done and must hope you reached the level minimum score to continue.

Game details

Tricky Block currently has 60 levels that obviously become increasingly more difficult. At the beginning of each level, you will see a display for how many points you must earn to move on. Of course, the goal is to obtain three stars for each level, but this is much harder than you might expect. You earn coins as you play that can be used to speed up or slow down gameplay within the levels.

Just how “tricky” is Tricky Block?

The game is not easy and moves very fast, but that is where the challenge comes in for those who really like puzzle games. One tip: be sure to keep your eye on the color of the square that is about to drop so that you can plan your move quickly.

Tricky Block is universal and available for free on the App Store. There are in-app purchase options for coins and to remove the ads.
