Super puzzle, but time goes by too fast. Fortunately there is pause in the emulators.

Nice and simple puzzle, but I too reckon the time limit feels too tight. Maybe it would be better to select a difficulty level before playing, which influences the countdown speed.

Neat. Presumably this Raymond Russell? Nice to see he's still at it.

Hi Chaps - just to nudge in here and mention that I persevered with my Vortex Tracker journey and composed all of the music you hear in BlockZ! I saw Raymond posting about BlockZ on Twitter and offered to create some music for the game. I learned a lot about Vortex Tracker on the way too!

The tunes are here if you want to check them out without playing the game through (although I recommend that you do because it's brilliant!)

Menu Music:


Game Tune 1:


Game Tune 2:
