18/20 – http://www.jeuxvideo.com/articles/0001/00014999-blocks-that-matter-test.htm
“The game’s secret reason for being, though, is its deference to what came before. This is a block game in love with block games.”

This is a fun little puzzle platformer (although there are plenty of levels), with a good complexity/difficulty curve as you progress, and also a bit of replayability - as you gain skills by progressing through the levels, you also sometimes gain something that will get you access to extra sections of the earlier levels to get extra bonuses etc.

It generally has that good level of difficulty for a puzzle game - once you are out of the tutorial type early levels, you often initially think "this level is impossible", right up until you recognize the solution which then seems blatantly obvious and straightforward now that you know it.

Ehhhhh. Not a terrible game per se, but it failed to grab me. There just isn't anything compelling about it; there are plenty of better games out there.

I hesitantly recommend the game, considering the price. However, you should know what you are getting here. Despite being labeled as "Casual" by the developers, this is not a game where you sit around and think. Gameplay quickly transitions into precision platforming, requiring fast movements. The clunky controls and character that is literally a block makes things more difficult. Later levels rely heavily on guiding AI that will one-hit kill you, avoiding drops that will one-hit kill you, and traversing areas that allow no mistakes to slow you down. This is not a casual puzzler, and not a game about digging. It quickly expects precision and expects minimal mistakes.

As I reached the later levels, I grew disappointed that no new mechanics were introduced. Wood and Sponge were the only interesting blocks, as everything else effectively behaved the same. It seems the game ran out of ideas, and just turned up the precision difficulty in timing moves. There is an awkward level editor with very little information on how it works, and some extra levels that again rely on AI usage to solve puzzles. It's been some time since the game stumped me into an "Aha" moment. If you are looking for a relaxing game that will challenge your mind, I would look elsewhere. I've been enjoying Qbeh recently, as it has nice puzzles with a great atmosphere and a push for exploration. This game does not do anything impressively. Watch some videos or try the demo, and know that the game pushes heavily into platforming in the later half. If you are still interested, it's not a regretable purchase at base price. I'd still recommend waiting for a sale, if you haven't gotten the game already, you aren't missing anything by waiting. Yes, this isn't a positive review, but the game is very mediocre.

I bought this game when I saw that there was a Gregory Horror Show block, little did I know the pc controls where crap. I can barely play this game without getting bored or raging because I pressed the wrong key.

It's a really fun game.
The only thing that really sucks is that you have to start a level all over again, when you ♥♥♥♥ up. This is (especially in longer levels) really annoying.

Fantastic fun and so much for the small amount you pay for it, not a game your going to walk through easily by any means. Some of the puzzles are pretty much crazy and incredibly frustrating, this is a good thing or a bad thing depending on your skill and persistence. Not often have i came across a puzzle game where i literally fist pump the air upon success.

With a Level Editor and community workshop, you'll have tons of fun amongst friends besting their efforts on yours and their creations. Awesome game with plenty of longevity.....a rare thing these days. A must buy!

A fun and interesting puzzle platformer. It's not the most unique game in the world, but it is definitely an entertaining and colorful experience.

Please don't buy this game.

The controls are god awful, really badly placed for a keyboard (I haven't played with a controller.) The way that the game works was really confusing and badly put together. I didnt find it to be a very good puzzle game, or platformer. While the story was somewhat unique, it was really cheesy, and a sad attempt at humor. Save your money

This puzzle game lacks of checkpoint or undo feature. I had to restart entire level everytime I made a little mistake. Maybe I should stop playing this.

Yes, yes, YES! Absolutely buy it!

I am completely and utterly in love with this game. I grew up playing and loving Solomon's Key and Fire 'n' Ice for NES and haven't really found any games that are quite like them. Until I got this game. It is just as great! The gameplay though is inspired by Tetris, and is quite unique, but still simple, making the possibilities endless.

I wish the game had more levels though, because the main campaign is quite short (though it took me over 15 hours to get 100%). However, the editor is easy to use, so there are many user-made levels available in the workshop, making the game even better.

And yeah, the music is also very good.

I just love this game! If you like puzzle games, you will too.

Honestly, this is not a bad puzzle game. It can probably be even considered good for small kids.

- Gameplay is OK, nothing too exciting, but hey, it's a puzzle game :)
- Levels are easy at first, slowly getting harder, but never becoming really hard, unless you're after bonuses.
- Levels are not too long or short, there are 40 of them in main story. There are some additional levels, which are quite hard.
- I can't say anything good about storyline, graphics, music, etc. Can't say anything bad either.

Main reason why this is a negative review, is other competition. Compared to games like "The Swapper", "The Bridge", "Portal", etc. I've had very mediocre experience with this one and can't really recommend it.

seems fun, but controlling is the weakess point (at least on pc), moving around is ok but building is not, why make use of [w],[e],[d],[r],[f],[t]! that's the most uncomfortable place on keyboard to made key combination, why not just [w],[s],[a],[d],[q],[e]? (i knew that you can change it in game but the default is ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥).

also most puzzle you can't get bonus for the 1st play, until you go later stage and upgrade your equilpment. with new equilpment the bonus is too easy and made no challenge at all.

I got this game gifted, off the recent Humble Bundle, so maybe I'm not in the best position to review this, but you're reading this, so I already did. Deal with it.

I don't think Blocks That Matter are worth €5 of your money. Why? To begin with, it's not a very complicated game. It's a puzzle platformer, based around manipulating blocks, that might as well been a Flash game. But it's not a very well designed puzzle platformer either.

The "premise" of the game is ridiculous: two devs (who are basically Alexey Pajitnov, creator of Tetris, and Markus "Notch" Persson, creator of Minecraft; the game doesn't attempt to hide this) create some small robot who has to solve puzzles to go to portals and to then go to more portals and for some reason rescue the two heroes. (I didn't really pay attention to the story, it's a puzzle game.) Yeah, could do better in terms of plot development.

The Tetris and Minecraft references are very prevalent in the game, and by very prevalent I mean the core of the game's design. You got blocks. Of different types, which behave differently. Blocks, which look very much like in Minecraft. And behave quite a lot like in Minecraft. (gravel and sand fall down, wood and stone doesn't, obsidian is unbreakable, etc.)

And then you can use these blocks to build structures. But only structures shaped like Tetris blocks.

That's the game.

I'm sure there are more kinds of blocks with properties that I couldn't dream of (the game even shows me some of these new blocks I can't do anything with in the first levels of the game, as if to taunt "you can't do this yet! better backtrack later!"), but the gameplay is frustrating. I'm probably bad at the game, but to be fair, getting stuck in a level and having to restart it by manually killing yourself (or blowing yourself up, in this case), is not good design in my book.

The music is okay, the visuals are okay, but all this to me is a mix of two already-existing games, just in the puzzle genre. There's zero originality in this, and I doubt I'll play this longer, it's just not fun to do.

You can buy this if you don't mind all of the above though I guess. (especially if you're smarter than me)

Another generic puzzle platformer. Meh.

Yeah it has a "unique" mechanic and "creative" art design.. blah blah blah. It's still a puzzle platformer and it's just bland.
