Over dit spel

Als de onafhankelijke spelontwikkelaars Alexey en Markus in de problemen zitten, rest hun enige hoop in hun eigen creatie..
Jij bent de Tetrobot; een kleine robot die een voor een blokken materie kan boren, ze verzamelen, en ze weer kan recyclen in nieuwe stukken van 4 blokken. Je kan ook lijnen van meer dan 8 blokken vernietigen, dat veel weg heeft van een oud-Russische spelstijl. Zand, hout, steen, lavaglas, ijzer, diamant; elke materie heeft z'n eigen gedrag dat je in je voordeel moet gebruiken. Dus, bereid je voor om je hersens te gebruiken en platform- en puzzelvaardigheden te combineren in deze ongelofelijke mashup!

Belangrijkste onderdelen:

  • Een unieke gameplayervaring die puzzel en platform combineert en je brein op de proef stelt
  • 40 levels in Adventure-modus, 20 bonuslevel die je kan vrijspelen en meer gratis inhoud komt eraan
  • Verzamel alle 40 "Blocks That Matter" en herontdek videogames met blokken die geschiedenis hebben geschreven of zullen schrijven
  • Maak en deel je eigen puzzels met een gemakkelijke leveleditor (binnenkort beschikbaar)
  • Steam-prestaties: meer dan 30 prestaties die je kan vrijspelen door het spel te spelen en creatief te zijn.
  • Steam Cloud: of je nou op de PC of de Mac speelt, binnen of buiten, je voortgang wordt altijd opgeslagen.

Ingenious puzzle-game for everyone who's considering thinking as an entertainment.

It’s about:
  • Tetrobot - minirobot - who's trying to set free its captured designers;
  • collecting blocks of different kind (wooden, sand etc.) and building different shapes of them to reach level's extraction point or get another blocks;
  • interacting with blocks and level's enviroment: as an example, when you need to deliver ice block from one point of the map to another or when you need to burn wood blocks to clear a path;
  • upgrading your Tetrobot for ability to collect new types of blocks;
  • being precise and think fast on special "platformer"-levels.

Why you should play this:
  • game appeals not to your reflexes or reaction, but to your logic and ability to preoritize your actions;
  • it incourages you to come back to finished levels with upgraded Tetrobot for getting special "Block That Matter" or beat the level with largest possible amount of blocks to get a "Star";
  • it teachs you to think few steps ahead.

Why you may not like it:
  • on some levels game suddenly cease to be medititative and transforms into cruel platformer when you need to reach the end of the level fast enough and continue collecting blocks and solve puzzles (easy ones) at the same time;
  • there's no "Undo" button - you have to start level again if you make a mistake: it is certainly irritating.

Logic is power - embrace it!

If you read all the reviews on this game, you pretty much know what the general opinion is. I'll just state a few since I haven't clocked in those kinds of hours..
Pros:
+Great music
+Simple look
+Simple yet awesome perks.
+Fun achievements
+Once you unlock certain abilities, you can playback old levels to unlock more goodies.
Cons:
-Playing back the old levels wasn't all that fun, but I'm a guy with a schedule so yea.
-Got sucked in with that amazing price and abundant content.

9/10

Lovely game. You need both logic and skill to beat it, and it's a lot of fun to try to get all the achievements. Some levels made me want to throw my laptop through the window, but loved it anyway.

Alexey Pajitnov (designer of Tetris) and Markus Persson (designer of Minecraft) were kidnapped because they were supposedly collaborating on a new game. Instead they were working on a miniature robot that was a blend of their two computer games. Tetrobot was activated in their absence and had to go rescue them from "The Boss." Definitely cliche.

As Tetrobot, you start out only being able to jump but quickly get a drill attachment. With this drill you are able to drill and collect certain blocks in the level, similar to Minecraft. Throughout the game, a couple of upgrades are added to Tetrobot to allow it to drill and collect different types of materials. With this collected matter, Tetrobot can regurgitate the blocks onto the paying field following a couple of rules:
1) The first block must be anchored to the level. It cannot just be put into mid-air. Subsequent blocks must be attached to blocks currently being placed.
2) Groups of four blocks must be placed. No more - No less. This creates "Tetronimos" I-J-L-O-T-S-Z.

Collecting and building platforms to get through the level is the goal. There are couple other things such as undrillable blocks, falling blocks, slimes and TNT. Each level also contains a Treasure Chest. Collect this chest and bring it to the level and you collect the "Block That Matters" for the level. The blocks that matter all pay tribute to different games.

Finally, every level has a star available. If you finish the level with a set level of blocks in your inventory you get a star, i.e. finish using the minimal number of blocks left on the board. Finish at the minimum get a gold star. Finish below the minimum and get a green star.

Rescuing Alexey and Markus will probably only take 3-4 hours. One of the Steam achievements is to complete this part of the game in one session. However, to get 100% (all the BTM and stars) will take significantly longer. I have played about 15 hours and still have 16 stars to collect and 14 bonus levels to complete. This is a fun little puzzle game that can provide a casual distraction to full out rage quit.

While the story and themes aren't necessarily super exciting, Blocks That Matters makes a lot up in the gameplay department. The object of the game is to control a little drilling robot and solve a slew of increasingly mind-bending puzzles. Your Drillbot can drill certain blocks (dependent on the quality of its drill) and then use those blocks to create platforms. Different blocks have different ways of behaving with certain situations and objects. You are also going to need quick fingers and lightning fast reflexes if you want to solve the puzzles in the "most efficient way" to earn a Gold or even the Green star!

The game is notably short if you don't have a obsession for completing everything and gaining every little golden star in the game, but at the same time it doesn't drag things endlessly and spread itself too thin. Almost every new puzzle requires different kind thinking. In the casual category, this game shines!
