Blocks are important
The prequel to the equally enjoyable and clever puzzler Tetrobot and Co., this is a cracking little game which is only marred by some occasionally tedious and overlong level design. This is a curious mix of puzzling, exploration and platforming, and it's this mix of gameplay styles which gives it much of its appeal. You take control of the Tetrobot, a cute little fellow which can drill blocks of matter, pick them up and then recycle them into new pieces, each with their own unique qualities, and which must be manipulated, Tetris-style, in order to progress through the many levels. For example, wood or iron blocks are strong enough to stand on their own, but sandstone must be supported by another type, while blocks must be laid out in tetromino patterns. In addition to the puzzling elements, there are also platform-style sections where you're chased by giant monsters, while there are many references to classic games like Boulder Dash. There are several modes to try out too, including Adventure Mode, bonus levels and a community section where you can play levels created by others. For the most part, this is an enjoyable little game. It's far from a classic, but it's got enough clever design choices and puzzling action to keep most casual players happy. It's perhaps not for hardcore puzzle fans, as it's not overly challenging, except when the difficulty level spikes occasionally during some of the platforming sections. The visuals are pretty basic but have plenty of personality, and overall, this is a solid little game.
