  • Good App but a few suggestions Apr 9, 2020

    By Mr. Jon young the gun
    I like almost all the features yet from a potential standpoint I think a few additional features are necessary to make it a truly A1 app. One change is to allow you to disable in settings the ability for it to glow before you place the block down so you don’t know how your decision will affect the turn. Another more important feature would be to save states. For example, if you added a third game mode for practice you should allow the ability to move backwards in plays and the only way to do so would be to keep track of the states whether that is through an array or otherwise(stack) this could even be implemented as a setting features on any game mode or in a premium version as it would be a crucial tool for learning from your mistakes! Edit: In addition look at A* search or Greedy algorithm to create a system of which blocks you generate for the turn. This should allow to integrate a difficulty setting into the game because you will know which blocks produce the most points and you can if let’s say they choose hard difficulty make sure it’s only giving them the blocks that only fit into one particular spot on the board.

    It's a very entertaining and relaxing game. If you don't want to see the ads, pay. Otherwise, don't cry about it. There's a design problem though, I agree with the others that say it gets frustrating when you receive too many equally useless pieces to a point you feel the game is trying to destroy your strategy by declining to give you a single piece that would be useful to you. Sometimes even if you have many free spaces, it will give you three pieces that won't fit anywhere, and you're done.

    Hello there! I absolutely LOVE this game!!! I’ll sometimes be getting in trouble for playing it so much 😂! Not much ads like other games, it also challenges your mind! It’s really fun!!! And everyone else, I’m not a bot lol don’t think I’m giving this good reviews cuz I’m a bot 😂. I have a suggestion though! (I don’t know if you have this or not if you do I apologize) There should be a worldwide challenge “Ring” and see who can get the highest score in let’s say.. 3 minutes! And 5 people per round? I don’t know why this came in mind, but I thought it could put more challenge into the game..... There is only one very small issue I have. Sometimes when I go to place a block, and I’m not done finishing where I’m going to put it; it places on its own. It mainly gets me a little frustrated, but then I usually just put it behind me. But then it happens again. And I’m getting a little more frustrated.... that’s all I have for now! Thank you for taking your time to read this review! ^^

    Well, it's good, fun to, but the rounds are super short, and there is a add after every round. So I get it, adds make money, but if u are fixing stuff, if make the rounds longer....

    While I love this game for the simplicity and challenges, I’ve also grown a deep hatred for it. For starters, 5 long tiles? C’mon now... I have had certain games where I’m on fire till my next set of moves require a 2x 5 long tile, 4 long diagonal tile and completely just slaps my ego to the ground and constantly stomps it to the ground with its size 24 boot. I wish we were given the option to rotate or maybe just re-roll a new set of tiles (Please don’t add this as an in game purchase-able refill type option). I love this game and think its awesome through & through, but it’s just so frustrating when i know my move sets are perfect but get hit with such obscurely difficult tiles. Anyways, hope to see some updates soon cause this game is great. Hate to see another phone shaped hole in my wall because of the inability to change the outcome of such a great round ruined by that obnoxious 5 long, 4 diagonal, C/U (Backward/upsidedown) shaped tiles.

    The ad for this game that drew me in is misleading, as it shows block configurations dropping into grids with different outlines, as though there would be a variety of puzzles to solve, but as it turns out there’s just the same puzzle ad nauseum with the only variety being how long before your luck runs out, more or less, and it could be a source of frustration if you fixate on the score, as you can gather from reading other reviews. For me the challenge of beating my highest score is so much greater than the reward that it’s not a meaningful motivator, and I often don’t finish the game. It’s a great diversion when I have unproductive time to fill (waiting rooms, etc) but I play less and less frequently, because I get bored by it very quickly now that I feel I have reached an insurmountable plateau. I think it would be interesting if the game tracked my average score, so I could see if it improved, seems like an easy feature to include. The ads are pretty annoying as well, but the game isn’t interesting enough to pay to remove them, in my calculus.

  • Favorite game Apr 17, 2020

    By ShadowJackal35
    This is literally my favorite game and I play it for hours on a daily basis because it's really relaxing and just kind of mindless enough that I can play and watch TV at the same time or just relax in bed. That being said, while I do enjoy the new updates I also hope that they decide to make separate modes because recently a ton of new puzzle pieces were added and while it's nice because it adds another challenge it's also a problem /because/ it adds challenge. I preferred it when the blocks were simpler and I didn't have to watch out for like a million combinations. Now there's so many shapes that my board fills up too quickly and the game ends too soon. I'm not saying that the new pieces should be removed completely, but I think they should add modes based on difficulty so people like me can play more casually. Over all it's a great game though and I'm glad it updates frequently. :)

  • Random or pre-determined? Dec 21, 2019

    By SayNoToCashHungryDevs
    I downloaded this game because it looked like an interesting and challenging puzzle game. While those things did seem to be true at first, it seems as if the tiles you receive are not random as the developers state. When I first started playing, I was able to achieve multiple games with scores over 1000. Now, I can not even come close to achieving that. It would be blasphemous to assume that my strategy/skill at the game has decreased, so what exactly is the reason for this? While it could be purely coincidence, I would bet that the developers purposefully created the game in such a manner that makes it essentially impossible to top a player’s high score. I have come to this conclusion through not only my experience, but the experience of other reviewers. By intentionally making the game more, players will play the game increasingly more in order to beat their high score. The more people play, the more ad revenue the creators collect. While I cannot be certain in my assumption, I am confident that this is the case. It seems unethical and, quite frankly, pathetic. The concept of this game is awesome, and I commend the developers for that. However, I refuse to overlook this stain on what is an otherwise very-well created game. I would love to hear back from the developers about the perceived randomness of this game.
  • Game has changed Nov 15, 2020

    By Azlo9
    This had been my favorite game for a long while. Recently it was changed to higher goals and much harder games. In the past, it was a fun wake-up challenge for the day and exercised the brain to start the day off in a positive way. Recently it has become more difficult and is now an exercise of frustration. I understand there might be players that want an extra challenge but could you not have kept your game as is and developed challenging sidebars instead??? You are losing me as an avid player. As for your days-long tournaments, they are much too long to hold interest - perhaps a one day tournament would be more fun???? It is almost as though someone entirely different is running this app, or a new philosophy has arisen. Please, scale it back to old times. Your fun app has suddenly taken a dive and I no longer look forward to it with my first cup of coffee. JUST CHECKED - I won a daily award trophy for 11 months in a row and just this week have had 2 days of puzzles that I cannot finish. That is not a coincidence - this is not a change in my mental aptitude - it is a way that the developers have changed the game, and I just reduced your review stars to one. I am not pleased with this change. Will someone at easy brain please give me an honest evaluation of what happened?

    Game sucks. Too many pop up adds. Cant finish a game without at least 4, and when they pop up, it usually wont allow you to finish the game you were on. I deleted after 15 minutes. Extremely annoying!
  • Meh Aug 10, 2020

    By Pinched Penny
    August 2020: Been playing consistently now for awhile and have decided to change my rating from a 5 to a 2. There have been no significant updates for a long time. Nothing that adds to the game play or makes things more enjoyable. The bug mentioned previously had been fixed back in April but I held out hope for a sort of endless version. Now that it is August and the version history has been mostly performance updates, I’ve given up hope for any additions for game play. A real shame as I think there is potential to make this game better and more fun. Old review: Been playing for a few months now. It’s my go to zen game. Feb 14 though I was surprised to be hit with a “bug” that has made my enjoyment of the game increase over 9000. Instead of the game ending at 500 points, it allowed me to keep going. And going. And going. I got up to 9000 points and felt really satisfied with that. My normal highest is only 2900 something. Which I know isn’t very high, so this made me feel great! Please make this a mode or something. I go back to this day just so I can keep playing this “mode”. I think I’ll cry if it’s fixed or something. Please, please, please keep it!!!

  • Pieces seems not random May 1, 2021

    By heartjesusart
    I’ve played this game for a while and many similar to it. I used to be able to score much higher, but over the year, they made updates that made it incredibly harder. I now can’t even average half of my former scores. From my experience, comparison to other apps of the same game, and many other similar user reviews, it really seems like the pieces are not truly random and increase in difficulty as you progress pursuant of creating ad revenue. The developers claim the pieces are random, but it seems very unlikely. For example, why can’t others and I score as high as we used to? Why do some of the same pieces in the daily challenges always appear first? Why do I receive less small pieces on average as the game progresses? Why can I score 5-10 times higher on other apps like this? Why do the pieces flip as they are presented and are so often the mirrored copy of what one would need? Also, an undo button would be appreciated. We can make placement mistakes and sometimes the app glitches to place a piece in an unwanted location. Why no back button? To me it’s clear they have made this game to make money from ads.
  • It was fun, average game now Apr 18, 2020

    By CallMeBanker
    So, my fiancée and I have been playing this game since December 2019. In January her app updated to the new pieces and it turned a pretty cool game into something I’ll say is average. Now three months later my app updated to the new pieces (I bought the app to avoid the terrible commercials). Now I’m out the money, the relaxing game, and bragging to my fiancée about how the new game wasn’t a ploy by the developers to make more money... this is the first time I’ve had to eat my words to her. She had me write this to tell you all I was wrong, the game was better before. Today will be my last day with this app. Take care developer folks. I reduced down to two stars after receiving a canned developer response about their feel they need more and more of your money - I paid once and got good - then it was changed to presumably to get more from me. I get that your goal is to maximize your reach in to the pockets of players, but can you look to just make it reasonable and not so greedy - no one likes a greedy game. Just strike a balance at the start and let’s all just get along and have fun!

    By Free At Last 1
    ....but hate all the ads. Would pay for it to get get it add free. Okay, heard from the developer. You can remove the ads for a payment of $4.99. Well worth it to me. Can play forever with no ads! Life is good! Looks like I got excited too fast. I paid for the cancellation of the ads on my iPad and expected them to come off my iPhone as well. After all, when you get the app, it shows up on both platforms regardless of which one you ordered it on. Imagine my surprise when I opened the app on my phone and the ads were back. Have written to the developer but if I have to play two times to play without ads, I will cancel the charge with the credit card company and remove the app from my iPad and iPhone. Buyer beware Okay, I was contacted by someone who explained how to get it ad free on my iPhone and iPad. Very easy to do. So as I said originally, I just love this game!
  • It’s a game that’s relaxing but wait... Dec 22, 2020

    By lIlI lIlIlIlI-lIlIl
    So I’ve been playing this game for awhile now. Especially through high school and now I actually like it. It’s relaxing, keeps me entertained and I haven’t had any issues with it bug wise. After the new update with achievements it just added onto the game. You don’t have to do the achievements but it also gives you something to do at the same time while playing. I’ve played this game in my high school classes and it’s been good. Although I give five stars I would say ads are kinda annoying. But then again for my personal case just turn on airplane mode and ads are gone. I can still listen to my instrumental music and play with no problem. For an average game that makes you stack and put certain blocks in certain places this game is one I highly recommend to anyone who wants a free but good game.
  • My kind of game May 15, 2020

    By jkerck
    I love this game because it is not sudoku; where you need to fill up the board , or Tetris where you can turn the tiles to its sides, although rarely, I wish I can turn the block to fit it perfectly on the board and keep on playing-. Ido play to challenge myself to get beat my score. I do as fast as I can , to fill the board minding only the 3 tiles given me. I do not worry about the next sets of tiles. I do not worry about racing against time, which I truly hate. I know the developers get their earnings from ads you see as you play, but I just set my tablet on airplane mode and I can play repeatedly to get my better score ( which rarely happen because I play it mindlessly and at a pace I enjoy.) No ads on airplane mode, battery seems longer. Thank you for this game. It is definitely one of my very few favorites.

    I like this game, but today I noticed there's been an update and the blocks don't burst away like they used to. They sort of roll and fade out. It's so unsatisfying, and kind of distracting. If many others agree, would you change it back? I'm bothered. Thank you

  • Good game! Apr 28, 2020

    By QClueingForLooksQ
    I really do like this game! It’s fun and makes you think yet can be done at the same time as listening to a show or something. The only issues I have is that, after a while, it can get very repetitive. Sure, there is the daily puzzle, and if you miss one or two, you can go back and do them all in a day, but once they’re done, they’re done, and they are normally quite easy. You can go back and play them but you already have, you know? Plus, all month, you are working for this trophy. But once you get the trophy...nothing happens?? Like...it becomes gold. That’s it. I want to see some power ups. Things that are actually unlocked when finishing a month or unlocking an achievement. Like being able to add or take away a block. A power up that clears the board for you. SOMEthing other than virtual badges and trophies that mean nothing. I would REALLY like the game then.
  • Fun puzzle, scoring could be better Sep 13, 2020

    By SciGuyBowTie
    Great challenging puzzle game, Tetris meets Sudoku grid logic. Your strategy must be “expect nothing” because you receive random pieces and can not rotate them as in Tetris. Multiple challenges to achieve and daily puzzles to solve. My biggest complaint is with the scoring. There is very little bonus for clearing multiple squares/lines simultaneously, or in consecutive turns. Would be nice to see the bonus improved because it would make it worth the gamble to fill the board waiting for that “just right” piece. As it is, since the score benefit is so minor, the only worthwhile strategy is to just use your given three pieces to clear one line, or one square, rather than taking the risk and building up the board for something exciting. Fix the scoring to make risky play more of a reward in the face of game-ending disappointment, and you’ve got yourself a 5-star app!
  • My zen game Jan 31, 2020

    By OrangeDandelion
    This game is just that perfect balance of challenge and simplicity. In the beginning it felt like I sometimes got odd tiles (as one reviewer mentioned), but the more I played the more it seemed that I had to change my thinking and the tiles would work in the puzzle (just not where I expected). Unlike Tetris it seems like the goal of this game is to complete a square or create a vertical or horizontal line and the tiles you are given are based on what will help you complete that goal. I also like the aesthetic of the game more than the other versions I’ve played. I would have given it five stars, but there were a few glitches and at one point the game locked up. Since it’s a puzzle game it’s not like I lost a bunch of levels or anything (like what happened to me when Candy Crush crashed). I just deleted the app and downloaded it again.

    This has the potential to be a really good game but right now it’s very frustrating for several reasons. After I play it a few games, I end up cursing at you. 1) the touch screen sometimes picks up & drops the blocks not where I want them. It would be nice to have a reverse move so I can place them where I wanted. 2) the new set of blocks ALWAYS is opposite (mirror image) of what I need, so it makes the placement of the 3rd block a random placement, if there is more than 1 possibility. There is no logic to which position and invariably a different spot works better when the new set of blocks appears. It would be nice if you always had 3 blocks to work with. 3) much like chess, I can’t play this game when I’m tired because I can’t concentrate on every move and a stupid mistake at the start ruins the rest of the game for me. Thanks.
  • Now Opens, but All History has been Erased! Jul 3, 2020

    By Zuwapa
    June 24. After the last update, the app no longer opens. It’s too bad they don’t do a better job testing an update before submitting it for release. *** Update *** June 25. They managed to fix the issue of the app hanging when attempting to open it, but now all player progress has been erased! This is very frustrating. If you haven’t updated your app in a couple days, I would recommend not doing so. I’ll post another update if they’re able to fix this mess they continue to put themselves in, but I don’t see how they’ll be able to bring back the history. *** Update *** June 27. Opening the app successfully, check. Player progress has been restored with this update. Let’s hope nobody uses claw hammers for future software updates. Thanks for addressing these recent issues.
  • It’s so close to being amazing Apr 27, 2021

    By joeminor7
    I’ve been playing this game for around a month now , and it’s very addicting. However, there’s a few problems with it. The main problem is, you have very limited space for error and no matter how clean your lines are, or how neatly stacked, the computer never gives you the pieces you need. I get being strategic and hard and all, but it’s one thing for a game to have to use strategy and another to where you almost always never get the pieces you need to clear space. And if you get really far and get a high score, it’s never safe because it almost always can give you 3 pieces you can’t fit anywhere and guess what? GAME OVER! This part of the game needs to be fixed and if so , it would be a top 5 game on the App Store.
  • Great game would recommend May 27, 2020

    By Adam Wandzey
    I saw this advertised on Instagram, and I downloaded it and really started playing it. This game is amazing! There are only two things are could really think of fixing. The first being how, before you even place the piece down, there is a highlight of what will go away. I don’t like that because I feel it takes away a lot of skill. Secondly, I think you should add another game mode to the game itself, rather than playing the same game over and over. Maybe try a game mode we’re you have to fill up the board and nothing disappears, just so there is a variety of things. Either way amazing game and I would recommend

    It's a very entertaining and relaxing game. If you don't want to see the ads, pay. Otherwise, don't cry about it. There's a design problem though, I agree with the others that say it gets frustrating when you receive too many equally useless pieces to a point you feel the game is trying to destroy your strategy by declining to give you a single piece that would be useful to you. Sometimes even if you have many free spaces, it will give you three pieces that won't fit anywhere, and you're done.
  • Oct 11, 2021

    Well, it's good, fun to, but the rounds are super short, and there is a add after every round. So I get it, adds make money, but if u are fixing stuff, if make the rounds longer....
  • Not as advertised May 10, 2021

    By Acorn Falls
    The ad for this game that drew me in is misleading, as it shows block configurations dropping into grids with different outlines, as though there would be a variety of puzzles to solve, but as it turns out there’s just the same puzzle ad nauseum with the only variety being how long before your luck runs out, more or less, and it could be a source of frustration if you fixate on the score, as you can gather from reading other reviews. For me the challenge of beating my highest score is so much greater than the reward that it’s not a meaningful motivator, and I often don’t finish the game. It’s a great diversion when I have unproductive time to fill (waiting rooms, etc) but I play less and less frequently, because I get bored by it very quickly now that I feel I have reached an insurmountable plateau. I think it would be interesting if the game tracked my average score, so I could see if it improved, seems like an easy feature to include. The ads are pretty annoying as well, but the game isn’t interesting enough to pay to remove them, in my calculus.
  • Was fun but it’s broken Dec 28, 2020

    By Ragdoll418
    This would be 4-5 stars. I’ve been playing for just a few months now and really enjoyed the challenge. Went to open it the other day after playing already that day and it’s just a blank white screen. No options or way to get out of there except closing the app. It’s a real bummer! I updated the app after that - still a blank screen. Did an iOS update on my phone...still a blank screen. I haven’t deleted and reinstalled the app because I really don’t want to lose all of my progress. But I may have to try that next. What confuses me the most is that there has been no comment from the developers. I’ve seen many other users announcing this problem for days now. If the app developers simply said that they know there is a problem and they working on it, I’d feel better about keeping the app on my phone. But no word at all isn’t the coolest thing. So 5 stars because it WAS great...but for now since I can’t play it - 0 stars. Balancing that out to a 3.
  • Data Backup Issue Oct 23, 2020

    By Rastathena
    I opened my app to notice my game name was not what it was supposed to be and there was no way to change it or get it back to what it was. So, I uninstalled my app and reinstalled hoping it would help my problem so that when i reopened the app again my name would be correct. Instead, I open it to find that everything I’ve done back to January is just gone, all the data, all my scores, all of the daily challenges I did, everything, like the game hasn’t existed until August. I can’t scroll back to January to redo it all, it won’t go any further than the 1st of August. I’m not sure what happened here, my phone saves my data every time I play, so I’m pretty disappointed that I’ve lost all my progress. I usually like this game, but I’m not sure I even want to play anymore after everything I did just to lose it all, I’ll have to start all over and from August vs. January. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Of everything, it saved my highest score, but that was all. 🤷🏻‍♀️

  • It’s good, but.......... Apr 15, 2020

    By Vincent Camelli
    The game itself is fun and addictive, the concept is simple and challenging all at the same time which makes you think and that’s great compared to what most games are. However, in my personal opinion the ad frequency is absolutely absurd and I refuse to pay $5 to get rid of them. I have a hard time believing the developers are also gamers themselves cause with a price like that it makes you feel like you’re only after the money and not customer satisfaction which is highly unfortunate cause if that’s the case you’re gonna fall and hit hard in an industry like this. Lower the price tag some and I’d gladly pay it cause I enjoy the game when I’m not having to watch ads. I know there’s a way to make them less frequent cause I know the backend programming and how to do this kind of stuff. But until then I think I’m moving on.
  • Way Too Many Ads Jan 3, 2020

    By C.E.F.11
    The game is fun, although would be better if you saw the next puzzle piece instead of only seeing three at a time. More often than not the game provides you with 2-3 pieces that don’t fit, not even giving you a chance. Otherwise way too many ads. A user shouldn’t have to watch a 30 second video after each game while also seeing banner ads during the game. Instead the 15 and 30 second video ads should be user opt in where someone can click to watch the video for a reward (incentive can be a free do over move or something to that extent). If you don’t want to shift to an incentive structure then consider adjusting the frequency for each player so it’s an ad every 20 games instead of after each one.
  • Challenging, but not fair Dec 16, 2019

    By Biology brain
    I was intrigued by this game since I like Sudoku, but sometimes find numbers problematic due to dyslexia. The concept of this game is good, but the application is a little off. As others have said, the inability to see pieces coming up creates short games since you can’t strategize beyond the 3 pieces visible. As others have also said, rotating pieces would help, as would the ability to undo at least one placement. With regular Soduku uou can usually use ‘pencil’ to try out a layout, but this game only gives the option of ‘pen’ or permanent placement. Additionally, it seems as though the pieces available for placement are deliberately pieces that cannot fit or be placed. PS I apologize for typos & misspellings...as I’m typing this I cannot see the letters on my screen for some reason...
  • Good game, but Feb 12, 2020

    By Jojennyjo
    The game is challenging yet frustrating. As others have mentioned in their reviews, there is no undo option or the ability to turn larger pieces to fit in the puzzle. The block board only includes 3 blocks and adds no others until those three are placed making it hard to plan for future moves. It would also be nice to add a timed option as well as the infinity option. But the reason I’m writing this review today is the new Daily Challenge game. I do not understand how to play and there are no rules anywhere within the app for how to “win” these challenges. I have “won” a few times but have no idea how... the game just stops even with blocks left to be played and the board not cleared of blocks with numbers.
  • Meh Aug 10, 2020

    By Pinched Penny
    August 2020: Been playing consistently now for awhile and have decided to change my rating from a 5 to a 2. There have been no significant updates for a long time. Nothing that adds to the game play or makes things more enjoyable. The bug mentioned previously had been fixed back in April but I held out hope for a sort of endless version. Now that it is August and the version history has been mostly performance updates, I’ve given up hope for any additions for game play. A real shame as I think there is potential to make this game better and more fun. Old review: Been playing for a few months now. It’s my go to zen game. Feb 14 though I was surprised to be hit with a “bug” that has made my enjoyment of the game increase over 9000. Instead of the game ending at 500 points, it allowed me to keep going. And going. And going. I got up to 9000 points and felt really satisfied with that. My normal highest is only 2900 something. Which I know isn’t very high, so this made me feel great! Please make this a mode or something. I go back to this day just so I can keep playing this “mode”. I think I’ll cry if it’s fixed or something. Please, please, please keep it!!!

  • It was fun, average game now Apr 18, 2020

    By CallMeBanker
    So, my fiancée and I have been playing this game since December 2019. In January her app updated to the new pieces and it turned a pretty cool game into something I’ll say is average. Now three months later my app updated to the new pieces (I bought the app to avoid the terrible commercials). Now I’m out the money, the relaxing game, and bragging to my fiancée about how the new game wasn’t a ploy by the developers to make more money... this is the first time I’ve had to eat my words to her. She had me write this to tell you all I was wrong, the game was better before. Today will be my last day with this app. Take care developer folks. I reduced down to two stars after receiving a canned developer response about their feel they need more and more of your money - I paid once and got good - then it was changed to presumably to get more from me. I get that your goal is to maximize your reach in to the pockets of players, but can you look to just make it reasonable and not so greedy - no one likes a greedy game. Just strike a balance at the start and let’s all just get along and have fun!

  • Was fun until the tournament. Sep 4, 2020

    By Xwovie
    I enjoy playing this game a lot and was surprised by the tournament. So, I joined it. I was completing well being the #2-4 player in the tournament up in till there was about 3 day 6 hours left. Then it all went to hell!! The game crashes so much my phone started to have issues. Like my battery that would last me playing the game almost alday would last maybe 2-3 hours. Game crashed so much that it would take 10-15 minutes to make a move then the game would crash and reset the move, which might that 15-20 restarts of the app to replay the move again. The for some reason my screen name was changed from Xwoive to Concerned Weasel, and my ranking was removed on my iPhone back to just entering the tournament from 2 place. When I had to switch to my iPad Pro which was working even worse than my iPhone, I saw that my ranking and name where still at 3rd place. I also found that in settings is a prank mode In the game. I just want to play and not deal with crashes, pranks, this is app ticking me off!

  • This is Kind of Opposite of Sudoku Dec 24, 2019

    By Texbard
    Original post was because I didn’t understand how the game ends - “You just keep dragging and dropping & eventually it says you’ve finished, even if entire board isn’t blocked. It kind of feels like just one endless exercise of dragging and dropping with no real point. Can’t determine the objective.” Updated feedback: So with the developer feedback, I’ll amend. I thought this was supposed to be like sudoku, where you fill the entire board up, or it ends when you’ve filled all you can and you can’t place a piece anymore. It’s actually kind of opposite of sudoku if the objective is to keep clearing the squares or lines so that the game never ends. I. guess I’d like it better if it was like sudoku - the squares you fill just stay blue and can’t be used again in one game, even if it ends earlier that way. Refilling some over and over again is visually confusing and not much fun to me, personally. But thanks for the clarification.
  • Fun but frustrating. Jan 31, 2020

    By QueenKR
    Game is super fun, but there are many cons. First, the ads. Way too many and they cut my sound EVERY time; there’s an ad after every round. It would also be helpful to add an undo button. The game does seem unnecessarily challenging at times; I haven’t been able to get close to my highest score since I first started playing. This seems weird. The game does seem to drain the battery fast, which is a bummer too. My sentiments echo the same as so many others. Are the developers listening? I’d be willing to pay a couple of dollars for the game to eliminate these issues, but I’ll have to delete if they can’t get it together. UPDATE: I deleted it shortly after writing this review. A silly game is not worth the annoyance. Have fun if you can stand the ads.
  • fun BUT Apr 4, 2021

    By A horse named Ed
    the Candy Crush ads are ruining this game. It’s bad enough that they autoplay audio that stops all other audio you’re listening to but these ads also can’t be muted despite there being a mute button and can’t be closed despite there being an X button. Half the time pressing the close button opens the app store, the other half of the time the Blockdoku app just shuts down totally. And ALL the time these ads make your phone drag and freeze to the point of being unusable for several minutes. I do really like the tournaments and events, and I don’t mind some ads as long as they aren’t full of gun shooting or audio autoplay disasters that act like desktop spyware such as the candy crush ones are.
  • Random or pre-determined? Dec 21, 2019

    By SayNoToCashHungryDevs
    I downloaded this game because it looked like an interesting and challenging puzzle game. While those things did seem to be true at first, it seems as if the tiles you receive are not random as the developers state. When I first started playing, I was able to achieve multiple games with scores over 1000. Now, I can not even come close to achieving that. It would be blasphemous to assume that my strategy/skill at the game has decreased, so what exactly is the reason for this? While it could be purely coincidence, I would bet that the developers purposefully created the game in such a manner that makes it essentially impossible to top a player’s high score. I have come to this conclusion through not only my experience, but the experience of other reviewers. By intentionally making the game more, players will play the game increasingly more in order to beat their high score. The more people play, the more ad revenue the creators collect. While I cannot be certain in my assumption, I am confident that this is the case. It seems unethical and, quite frankly, pathetic. The concept of this game is awesome, and I commend the developers for that. However, I refuse to overlook this stain on what is an otherwise very-well created game. I would love to hear back from the developers about the perceived randomness of this game.
  • Game has changed Nov 15, 2020

    By Azlo9
    This had been my favorite game for a long while. Recently it was changed to higher goals and much harder games. In the past, it was a fun wake-up challenge for the day and exercised the brain to start the day off in a positive way. Recently it has become more difficult and is now an exercise of frustration. I understand there might be players that want an extra challenge but could you not have kept your game as is and developed challenging sidebars instead??? You are losing me as an avid player. As for your days-long tournaments, they are much too long to hold interest - perhaps a one day tournament would be more fun???? It is almost as though someone entirely different is running this app, or a new philosophy has arisen. Please, scale it back to old times. Your fun app has suddenly taken a dive and I no longer look forward to it with my first cup of coffee. JUST CHECKED - I won a daily award trophy for 11 months in a row and just this week have had 2 days of puzzles that I cannot finish. That is not a coincidence - this is not a change in my mental aptitude - it is a way that the developers have changed the game, and I just reduced your review stars to one. I am not pleased with this change. Will someone at easy brain please give me an honest evaluation of what happened?

  • Pieces seems not random May 1, 2021

    By heartjesusart
    I’ve played this game for a while and many similar to it. I used to be able to score much higher, but over the year, they made updates that made it incredibly harder. I now can’t even average half of my former scores. From my experience, comparison to other apps of the same game, and many other similar user reviews, it really seems like the pieces are not truly random and increase in difficulty as you progress pursuant of creating ad revenue. The developers claim the pieces are random, but it seems very unlikely. For example, why can’t others and I score as high as we used to? Why do some of the same pieces in the daily challenges always appear first? Why do I receive less small pieces on average as the game progresses? Why can I score 5-10 times higher on other apps like this? Why do the pieces flip as they are presented and are so often the mirrored copy of what one would need? Also, an undo button would be appreciated. We can make placement mistakes and sometimes the app glitches to place a piece in an unwanted location. Why no back button? To me it’s clear they have made this game to make money from ads.

    I do enjoy the game. The game is entertaining, but I think the ads and promotions are a bit much. Makes it hard to continue. Most times when I try to skip the ad it goes to Play Store becomes frustrating. Does not make it a very relaxing game. That is all I have to say.
  • Ignoring or Over-riding privacy settings. Now crashing Dec 9, 2020

    By Mr Sith
    In a recent update I noticed that despite blocking this app from access to cellular data, when not connected to WiFi, the app is using cellular data anyways to download advertisements, banners video ads etc, as well as connect to tournaments etc. Cellular data has been de-activated for this app for months, and now after two updates the game crashes when trying to load advertisements and frequently lags excessively. Closing the app, and all other apps yields no success at reducing the lag or now the frequency of crashing every single time I open the daily challenge. Beyond that obviously the game was fun enough for me to continue playing it despite its obvious security concerns, but now that it no longer functions and my growing concerns are more with apples privacy and security regarding the app, than the app creators bugs fixes and stability which is obviously a game changer when it doesn’t function. It’s time to move on and ban this app developer from my devices.
  • Glitchy May 12, 2021

    By 10/30/1960
    I’ve been playing this game for quite sometime. It’s a good way to pass time. But lately I’ve been having quite a few problems that have my questioning whether I should keep the game or go ahead and delete. These problems have only gotten worse as time goes on. 1) Sometimes when trying to bring the game up to play it make take more the 30 seconds to load up where as before it was a few seconds. 2) Once it finally decides to load up it’ll immediately shut down. 3) If the game stays up you can’t get into either daily, regular or tournament play. No matter how many time I press the play button (and then it’ll shut down). 4) If I can finally play, the feature to drag the sequence of block it’ll lock up and then randomly place the blocks somewhere on the board and it’s usually in a spot where I certainly didn’t want the blocks to go. I’ve spoken to another person who I know plays the game and they too have been having the same problems. So I know it’s not just me. And, when I tried to contact support (kept shutting down) there was no real way to leave a message so it’s forcing me to do so by leave a 1 star review. What can you do to keep me from deleting this game and then leave another review warning people to not even waste their time down loading a game that’s pretty much unplayable because of ALL the glitches? This is not the only game I play on my device but it’s the ONLY ONE with these problems!!
