    Blocked is a game similar to those online parking lot games. Basically, there is a blue block and you have to move other blocks to get the blue block out of the "zone" I guess you could call it.

    I bought this last night and am stuck on level 37 :( Soooooooooooooo fun.

    Has anyone else been playing this?

    Not really, it's fun and all but honestly there are a LOT more games out there that are MORE polished at 0.99. iDracula is a recent one. I have no idea how blocked got to rank 1 and stuck there for so long.

    My wife and I have been playing this game since it came out. For some reason it's the one that we keep going back to, even though we've reviewed so many others that are "more polished".

    I don't think a more polished game makes it better. It may make it more pleasing to look at (ie: better graphics), but if the game works and you like it... what more could you want?!

    Frankly, I quite like the simplicity of Blocked. I installed iDracula on Saturday and haven't even launched it yet... but I have come back to Blocked twice today already. For a short challenge, this game works very well.

    Oh, and yes we did do a review on Blocked. :D

    LOVE Blocked. I'm currently stuck on level 89, there does not appear to be a solution. :(

    (although i thought that about level 64 and i eventually figured that one out.)

    Yeah it's pretty addicting.
    I was able to finish it within a couple a couple of days.

    I'll probably play through it again in a few weeks.

    Blocked has given me a lot of gameplay. Its a great game that really requires some brainpower. Any of the harder levels can give you trouble. I had read that level 64 was a killer, but finished it in about 3 minutes. Other levels gave me much more trouble. I finished all 100 levels during a week of casual play.

    The replay value is there, because you'll never remember a particular solution and the puzzles will all be new again.

    The app deserves to be #1. Its perfectly executed.

    it is actually number 2 in 3 of the biggest app stores in the world. we just reported on iDracula taking number one across all 5 stores, but blocked is a solid number two and maybe will rise.

    great game for sure

    I think the solution to level 64 is on youtube. ;)

    Anyone know if, when you finish all 100 levels, you can re-set the game so all the green checkmarks disappear? Or do you have to delete and re-install?

    loved the game also. great concept and truly a simple yet tough puzzle game. hope the developer can add more levels in the future to keep things interesting.
