Groovin' Blocks

 

And the beat drags on...

Extra songs ; More graphical effects ; Satisfying beat-matching puzzling

Content doesn't match the price ; Doesn't capitalize on core concept ; Doesn't stand out enough from puzzle crowd

Less successful is the way the game integrates the electro-ditty soundtracks. The idea is to fast-drop the blocks in time with the beat, indicated by a metronome to the side of the action. Hitting the beat several times in succession will boost your...

Groovin’ Blocks (Retail Version)

 

I like puzzle games. I've never been shy about this particular bias I have. I was looking forward to playing Groovin' Blocks on the Wii as I wasn't able to catch it when it debuted as a downloadable title. Everybody I know that downloaded the game...

Good puzzle and rhythm game

Twice the price of the downloadable version but not twice the content - Missing online multiplayer - Small gameplay tweaks would have made the game much smoother to play (such as the tutorial)

Get the download version. It's a good game, but at $20 it's too much in the face of the WiiWare version.

These blocks are groovin' to a different beat.

Groovin' Blocks is a solid puzzle game that should keep any puzzler's interest for some time. It was a great downloadable title for the Wii a year ago and it still is. However that's the form that gamers should look into, not this overpriced optical form.

Review: Groovin' Blocks (Nintendo Wii)

 

You know, I appreciate a good hybrid. I like the Prius. I dig sweet corn. Right now I'm even enjoying some peanut butter in my chocolate.

Tetris and rhythm games pick it up for ’0, but it's not going to cross-over well to your Rock Band or Madden playing friends.

Talk about a block party...

Ideas are fresh ; Hectic and intense ; Beats sure groove

Not as slick as Lumines ; No online leaderboards ; Can get too hectic

Groovin' Blocks Game Review - Nintendo Wii

 

Groovin' Blocks is not unlike your traditional falling blocks type of puzzle game. All you have to do is put three blocks of the same color together either vertically or horizontally, and they'll disappear. With this, you can set up all kinds of...

It sounds like a horrible children's cereal, but this is a damn addictive game that just might be the best available purchase on the WiiWare

You can't rent it, but game should be given a try because its that addictive. Maybe you can convince another Wii owner to gift it to you

With that, a good strategy while playing is to memorize the song (if you're not good with memorizing beats) and go from there. Also, you can save your combos by just being patient and letting the blocks fall, rather than forcing them to fall with the...

Fans of Lumines and Meteos will appreciate the subtle and addictive design of Groovin' Blocks, the first must-own WiiWare title.

Simple, yet deep and challenging ; Addictive and mesmerizing ; Great techno music

No leader boards or co-op scorekeeping

There's a calibration option and I've tried it on two separate occasions--doesn't help the problem. :(
