“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.”

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!

so, main story is like 5 hours, and i 100% this ♥♥♥♥♥ in like 19 hours.

this isn't just a puzzle game, it's also a skill game: there are a lot of hard platforming levels (you can skip em during the main campaign if you are a filthy casual, but you have to beat em if you want 100%), some of which make this gaem look like a rage game. anyway, great game, nice puzzle, a lot of ♥♥♥♥ to do, many references to other games (with blocks), indies and non-indies.

8/10 if you like puzzles/skill platformers with a fresh game mechanic.

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 is a pretty decent platformer about a little robot that can take blocks, drill into them and take them, then rearrange them (in groups of four) to progress through the levels. It's a short game, you can beat the main levels in less than four hours, but this game is also incredibly cheap, and is worth a playthrough if you like 2D platformers. It's not the most outstanding indie title ever developed by a human, but that's not to say it isn't worth your time. I bought this game for less than $2, and I had a good bit of fun with it.

I can't say how much of that is personal preference or not, but I can just say that this was very boring for me.

I think it has to do with being able too easily to screw things up and having to redo a long passage of the game, which often needs you to be careful and progress slowly.

The thing is, you have to make mistakes to understand how to play, right from the start, and the game punishes you for that in a way that impedes progress completely.

I mean, you might want to try it, it might be more your cup of tea, but you're warned.
