For someone looking for a time wasting, no thinking puzzle game, this game may be something your ineterested in. however, after putting in about 10-12 hours and finishing the game, this game isn't something I can recommend to everyone.

The game is incredibly repetitive, there's about 5 'levels' each one has 7 or 8 zones and each level follows the same pattern to those zones. Collect X amount of coloured blocks in zone 1, make 4 squares in zone 2, collect X amount of stained glass peices, etc..... It's pretty well the same each level, except another colour is introduced.

You are also given different powers to help each level, but those powers are very weak and don't see to improve much on what they say they are suppose to improve (not to a noticable level anyways).

There are things that pop up in the puzzle to make it more difficult. Theres a character that shuffles all the blocks (actually surprisingly helpful instead of a problem). As well there can be bigger blocks of various sizes that can be difficult to remove.

Again this game is incredibly simple. However if thats the type of puzzle game your looking for, you may want to give this a try.

With the amount of similar cheaper games running in portable touch devices, unless it's on sale, I see no reason why you'd buy this, anyway here's my quick list of pros/cons:

Pros :
- Fun
- Cute graphics
- Well finished

Cons:
- has no trade card drop
- has no achievements
- expensive for what it is

Pre-Release Review
The puzzle mechanic here is so simple and requires more luck than skill. There are so many better puzzlers out there.

A fun and addicting little puzzle game. It's not particularly difficult but it can challenge your ability to recognize patterns. The gameplay is simple: make squares/rectangles where all 4 corners are the same color blocks to clear them and gain points.

If you're looking for a simple pick up and play puzzle game akin to bejeweled this might be a good pick for you.

Another variant on the block puzzler genre, Yosumin! sees you play on a 9x9 grid of blocks where you have to click on four blocks of the same shape/colour to describe the corners of a square or rectangle, which transforms all blocks within that space into the same colour as the selected corner blocks before removing all those blocks then replacing them with another mix of blocks. BLOCKS!

Each stage sets you objectives, ranging from the simplistic, like removing a quota of specific coloured blocks, to the more challenging, such as clearing an entire board with one move (this move being where the game gets its name, in the same way Tetris is the name given to clearing the maximum of four lines in a single drop), with each stage being cleared by completing all of these objectives.

The whole things starts off at a very basic, and even mundane degree of difficulty as you breeze through the majority of the opening stages in the space of a couple of minutes, but by the final quarter or so of the game this is turned on its head as the ever strangling time limit can soon grind you down unless you have very sharp eyes or a lot of luck finding the right blocks to match. This deceptively high difficulty spike of the final stages seems very at odds with the über casual, child-friendly presentation of every aspect of the title and may see many quit before reaching the end, even with the extra added help of bonus unlocks which act as perks to aid in varying elements of play.

But even if you do quit by then, ultimately you're not really going to miss out on all that much. The opening few hours play much the same as the final hours save for some minor added elements and complications added to proceedings that actually change things very little of the game beyond its initial premise. So a pretty throwaway, repetitive, yet inoffensive title (except for maybe the audio, which you might want to mute) that might not stick with you too long after you play it, but which still holds some fun for those looking for their quick puzzle fix to dip in and out of. Pick it up when it's cheap, play it, enjoy it a little, forget about it, move on with your life. Yosumin!
