Gratifying Moblox Android game could knock your blox off

by Caitlin M. Foyt

It took some time to figure out how to play the Moblox app for the Android phone. It's a fun physics puzzle game, but it doesn't come with any clear instructions. To save you some time, here's a short run-down on how it works.

The app is a strategy game in which you must knock all of the green blocks from the suspended platform to reach 100 points total. To do this, choose from three different sizes of demolition balls from the top of the screen. Each ball uses a different level of power, and the larger the ball, the more points it will cost you. Each green block is worth six points, red blocks are worth minus-6. Aim and fire the balls at the green blocks by moving your finger around the purple circle on the left side of the screen.

At first, the game is simple, but quickly becomes more difficult with the addition of red and blue blocks.

The game has clear, simple graphics, and the way the cannonballs hit the blocks is very realistic. Users may also find the sounds of the balls hitting the blocks to be very gratifying, a feeling similar to when your bowling ball hits all of the pins at the end of the bowling alley.

Users can play free within limited levels by using Moblox Lite, or can pay for the full version, Moblox, which is definitely worth the upgrade if you enjoy the game.
