Novel Squares Review

" Play this tetris style game. Blocks will be destroyed when they form squares. "

This game is a tetris style game in which you score by destroying blocks. The play area is an 8 x 8 grid full of 8 different kinds of blocks. When 4 blocks of the same kind form the 4 corners of a square (small, large, tilted), those 4 blocks will be destroyed and new blocks will be formed. You can try to destroy the blocks by moving them in position. To move the blocks, you select 4 blocks that are adjacent to each other and then rotate them clockwise or counter clockwise. This moving of the blocks is itself challenging.

Big square are less noticeable than small ones so they score higher, tilted squares also score higher. A big tilted square scores highest. When new blocks appear, they may form squares with other blocks, those blocks will be destroyed immediately and you score a combo. After some time a bonus block will appear, if you can destroy that bonus block within 1 move, a super power block will appear and destroy all the blocks it can form a square with and you score a fortune. When every single move from you destroys some blocks then you are on a run, a long run is crucial for scoring high. If you hits the bonus block while having a long run, then you will be awarded very very high scores.

This game is different from games of similar kinds because you have to think. To spot opportunites to form squares within a big field, you have to observe carefully and this is challenging, and then you have to figure out a way to move the blocks and this is not as simple as it looks.
