Quality graphics, lots of levels, exciting game play, simple controls
Block Amok for Android is an incredibly enjoyable puzzle game that uses physics based gameplay. In this game, you must fire a cannon at blocks in an attempt to knock down as many blocks as possible.
You are given a limited amount of shots per stage, so you must think carefully about where to shoot each block. The game is set in a 3D environment, and your cannon is placed on a circular track that goes around the outside of the blocks you need to shoot. You are able to move along the track to give yourself a 360 degree view on the track. This extra feature gives players the chance to really aim up their shot and think through which points are best to knock down.
Each time you knock down enough blocks to beat the level, you will be rewarded with coins. Coins in this game can be spent on special upgrades or cosmetic changes to your character. Because everything is farm themed, you'll see plenty of farm animals in each stage, and hitting these can have various effects. For example, hitting all the cows on the level will upgrade your next shot, whilst hitting pigs will give you an extra power-up for the next stage.
The gameplay is superbly done, and the same can be said for the unique cut-out graphics style and groovy sound effects. There are also tons of levels to keep you interested for hours. Some stages will have interesting mechanics for you to play around with, too. For example, one level will allow you to shoot at a cow that is sitting on a skateboard equipped with rocket boosters. You can probably imagine the moo-ves the cow can perform once you shoot it.
There are in-app purchases in Block Amok, but you can easily play through all of the levels without spending a penny.
