Updated Game Review: Unblock Me FREE for the iPhone

LAST month, I wrote a short piece about this addictive puzzle game for the iPhone. Well, the recent update was so significant, I decided to update my mini-review.

Developer's Notes:

Unblock Me FREE is a simple and addictive puzzle game inspired by Nob Yoshigahara. The goal is to get the red block out of the board by sliding the other blocks out of the way. Unblock Me FREE comes with 800 puzzles pack in the Beginner and Intermediate levels to keep you challenged for hours. Features:- 400 unique puzzles in Beginner pack- Two game modes, Relax Mode and Challenge Mode- Keep track of all the levels you've cleared.

In its early incarnation, UnBlock Me FREE gives you 400 reasons to play it for hours. Now as reflected in the developer's notes, it gives you eight. But wait! The game now includes 400 more puzzles in the newly-included Bonus level. That's about 1,200 levels of puzzle addiction and lots of lots of time to kill.

In addition, you can now choose between two Block types so yes, it doesn't get old quickly. Even if you lose track of your progress and suddenly find yourself in a level you already completed, solving that puzzle is not exactly a piece of cake the second time around. It's not easy memorizing completed levels and you go to have a very good memory or high IQ to even try.

Puzzle fans, casual gamers and everyone in between should enjoy UnBlock Me FREE. There's more than enough in the free version to keep you preoccupied without even thinking of getting the full version that you can purchase at the iTunes Store.

And like I said before, if you have an iPhone or iPod Touch and, this is a must-have. In my book, this is a nice and well-made game that should be right up there with classics like Q-Bert, Tetris and Bejeweled. Go download it already.

TIP: Just keep moving. Don't think too much. Just keep moving and the solutions will present themselves.

Unblock Me FREE is developed by Kiragames and can be downloaded directly from iTunes Store. For more info, visit www.kiragames.com.
