Ultimate Block Party


$25.00 Released December, 2005

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Many different modes to play to test your skill in different ways. Loads fast, there isn't any lag time at all. Gameplay is engaging and challenging enough for adults.

The Cons:Characters are geared more toward kids. Navigating menus is set up counter-intuitively. May feel too similar to existing games such as Tetris or Lumines.

Based on an arcade game of the same name, your goal in Ultimate Block Party is to eliminate blocks from a board by grouping like-colors together. You can rotate groups of four blocks left and right. Lining up four pieces of the same color makes the pieces disappear from the board.

As the four pieces are disappearing, you can continue connecting more pieces to the group, adding to a growing chain of piece annihilation. You can add an additional row with a quick button press (this is an advanced technique for those who don't have enough pieces to make combos), although rows are also added automatically as time progresses. If your stack of blocks hits the top of the screen, you lose!
This game was released as Kollon in Japan for the PSP launch. For later the US edition, the anime-styled game was improved with wireless play for 2 players (by developer ArtDink, from MagicPot's original Japanese/Korean version.) Also features 8 characters as well as VS CPU, Campaign and Tutorial modes.
