Don’t Get Blocked Out Of The Way!

There are some games that are absolutely meant to be played with a partner. Without one, there is very little left to it. One such game in the digital arena is Blocked Out. The competition just grows with each level till the two players are left battling it out to get the highest points.

Blocked Out is a game meant for those with a quick wit and fast reflexes. With the help of these two, players must find a way in which to outsmart their opponents and blocking them out of a point and advancing forward to the next level. Who knew such a simple and innocent game could make for such an intense gaming field?

Gameplay

Blocked Out has only aim set out for the players. They must – by hook or crook – block out the other player from the game screen. Sounds difficult, but can be achieved. The main purpose of the game is either to out run or out smart the other player. Both strategies can be equally useful depending on the time and need. To win at the game, staying alert is absolutely crucial, otherwise the opponent just might end up get you Blocked Out.

As the levels progress, players will find additional challenges to make the game a tad more confusing. Obstacles such as crates, laser beams and a horde of spikes will keep presenting themselves along the way. It is up to the players to either use these in their winning stride or find a way around their damages. When one player has managed to block out the other, they receive one point. Ultimately, the player with the most number of points wins.

Blocked Out has the kept the graphic design simple and functional. It makes up the lack of imagination in the looks department for the growing complexity of levels and challenges. Ultimately, this is where the game scores high.

Control

Blocked Out features two players that must move ahead of each other. And so, the control scheme has been designed to retain that level of simplicity.

  • Player one can use the W-A-D key combination to move left, up or right.
  • Player two can use the Left-Up-Right arrow key combination to do the

Same.

Conclusion

Although fairly interesting, the game has not been able to reach a level of perfection. Such could be expected from a fairly well thought off game. Although this is a two-player game, a single player can play. However, there is no AI that will play the other character and it ultimately becomes a one sided game. These little things make the difference and give Blocked Out a three and a half star rating out of five.

  • Star number one is for the level of complexity in the gameplay.
  • Star number two is for the use of obstacles in order to enhance the learning curve.
  • Star number three is for the use of minimalist design and graphics.

Overall, Blocked Out is worth a play and promises to be an interesting way to pass the time with some friendly competition.
