Almost all of you must have the played the legendary columns game in your mobile phone or on the gaming sets. Big Box of Blox is also the same thing; it’s just the name which leaves a long lasting effect on the mind. Big Box of Blox is developed for the Symbian OS mobile phones.
How the game works, I guess there is no need to explain it. But still for the cause of all those who are unaware of this game, it’s actually a pattern matching game in which you have to match the column falling from the top with the already placed blocks. You can rotate the column blocks vertically but cannot rotate the block horizontally. You need to match the blocks in groups of 3 and they vanish.
Coming to the game play, I m quite sure that you just cannot play the game for long. It will become quite boring, atleast for me. It’s not that the developers have not tried new ideas to keep the game fresh, but all the efforts went in vain because they just cannot change the theme of the game, the basic principle will always be the same.
According to me what actually saves the game is its difficulty level which provides a good enough challenge but what this game seriously lacks is the ability of the gamer to force him into saying, “I want to give it one more try”. To add to the complexity level of the game, new shapes of the jewels have been developed and this demands extra focus. The game is reasonably good for one time play or occasional playing but I would say, it’s not a must to have application.
