Info over het 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.

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.

Blocks that matter tries to be a puzzle and platformer game and is mediocre at both.

The primary puzzle aspect involves collecting blocks and placing them again. This simple concept is ruined by needlessly convoluted rules about how you must place and pickup blocks. The most basic moves take too long, its not fun and place one wrong block and you have to reset the whole level, redoing sections you've already done.

The potential of this game might be better realised if the levels were shorter or there was a rewind button.

The story is boring, irrelevant to the gameplay and relentlessly unfunny.

I would not call this game casual as indicated in its 'tag'. It is too fiddly and unforgiving.

Only buy when on special and if you're desperate for a puzzle game.

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.

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!
