First off, what makes this game even better than its predecessors is that it uses your phone’s accelorometer and thus the orientation of your phone to move blocks.  When you think you’re stuck, rotate your phone to realign the blocks for new chances of beating the level.

Puzzle Blox offers three different play styles: Arcade!, Puzzle Mode, and Challenge.  Arcade! mode spawns new blocks continuously that start to fill the playing field.  Tap groups of 3 or more adjacent blocks to remove them and gain points.  Continue for as long as possible to run up your score!  Remember, if you’re not finding blocks to destroy, try tilting your screen to one side.

Puzzle Mode introduces even more strategy to the game, giving it the true puzzle feel.  This mode takes more thought and analysis and is more challenging than the Arcade! mode.  Give this mode a try for a brain teaser.

Lastly, Chellenge Mode adds another level of complexity by challenging you to complete various setups that have different requirements like using only 1 move, beating the clock, or knocking all blocks out in a large combo.

A great addition to this game is the High Scores leaderboard.  There are tabs for both your own personal high scores and those of all players on Puzzle Blox.  Furthermore, each different game mode has it’s own leaderboard.  This gives the game a lot more staying power as it provides you with the challenge of being one of the best on Android.

You also have the option of changing the background image/blocks style if you want something a little more unique.  Customize to your liking.  Here are a couple of examples of what is offered.

Overall, Puzzle Blox is a great adaptation and evolution from the original match 3 games.  It offers new twists and playability that you’ll only find on Android.  The developer is very involved in the Android community and dedicated to the success of this game.  Here is Puzzle Blox’s website if you’d like more information.
