Blox is a minimalist, thoughtless match game designed to help humans zone out anywhere and anytime. It introduces a new, original and completely unique play mechanism that is designed to be easy to grasp, fast, and engaging.
To play you simply move or swipe the blocks to create matches of three. Moving a block will also move all the blocks with the same color and in the same direction. After each move new blocks are added to the grid, filling up the empty cells. Player’s goal is to create as many matches as possible to avoid a gridlock.
As intuitive and casual to play, the unique play mechanism of Blox makes it a strategic and thoughtful game as you continue playing it.
After years of designing and building various products for startups and corporations we decided it was the time to bring our expertise into game development. We started by looking at BLOX as an experiment on how to apply product development approach into mobile games. It took our team over two years of experiments and prototyping to build a game that is ultimately here to help humans refresh their minds.
