This game has awesome music and extremely solid core gameplay.
It's pretty tough and can sometimes be unfair because the blocks are somewhat random.

Thankfully it's not too frustrating since you can quickly start a new round.
The music and fun gameplay also help with that.

So far, I'd say 8.5/10.

This game is not for the faint of heart.

You may be playing as an armed piece of cheddar with massive eyebrows, but you'd best be on your damn toes in this intense puzzle platformer. But this ain't your average "puzzle platformer", no, forget your braids and your fezzes, because this game's got GUNS, SPIKES, MISSILES, DYNAMITE, LASERS, JETPACKS, SKELETONS and BLOCK, AFTER BLOCK, AFTER BLOCK, THREATENING TO TURN YOU INTO CREAM CHEESE.

And to top it all off, this game has a BLAST PROCESSING option, which does ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

Wait for the blocks to fall and line up with each other. The more of the same color touching, the bigger the combo bonus when you blast them with your ray-gun! That's essentially the core element of Super Puzzle Platformer Deluxe, shooting blocks in larger and larger groups for higher and higher combos in order to collect gems and unlock new areas and outfits!

Each new area comes with its own tileset, music, trap-blocks, and total gems needed to "complete" the area. Gems are earned by collecting bits from blasting blocks and clusters of blocks. Grab enough or get a big enough combo and a gem will drop for you to collect. Completing certain other "tasks" will unlock different outfits or characters to choose from. Each outfit comes with its own set of stats and abilities, each one having its own strengths and weaknesses.

Super Puzzle Platformer Deluxe hits the action, puzzle, and indie spots tremendously well. The music is great and keeps the game at a fast pace while the sound effects blend perfectly into it. Bright, colorful, and simple animations are pleasing to the eye and easy to keep up with during quick bouts of frantic, block-shooting fun. The multiplayer is great and the game is a solid buy for the price. Get it. Right now.

This title, although small, is a great send-up to the 3rd and 4th generations of gaming. Players can choose one of nine different outfits, each with thier own ability (for example: Ninja offers double-jumping; Domino Mask utilizes two-way shooting), and endure amidst a small arena of falling blocks. Jump, shoot and strategize your way to a high score.

As for the gameplay itself, the premise is simple: survive as long as possible, with no time limit. This quickly becomes a welcome challenge, as numerous traps [and blocks] will appear according to the players' level (goes up to four; the higher the level, the more difficult it is to survive). Each map has its' own set of traps. Usually, it is a better option to wait for the screen to fill at least halfway, as connected adjacent blocks of the same colour will all explode when shot as a combo. As blocks explode, they drop block bits, which add 1 point on thier own. Collect enough bits in a row, and an invincibility star will appear.

Get this title while it's still only 2 dollars; it's worth it. The game has a small footprint as well, being under a gigabyte, as well as lower specs.
