Description
Release date: April 21, 2016

Blockara is a head-to-head action puzzle game where you, one of the best alchemists in the world, must compete in the World Alchemy Tournament for a chance to have your wish granted by the September Dragon! Fight your way to the top in Story Mode or hone your skills in the other game modes!


  • Line up 2 or more blocks of the same type to take out tiles on your opponent's field before they do the same to you!
  • A Story Mode with 10 characters - choose your favorite and help them conquer their foes!
  • Local Multiplayer to make your friends regret coming over!
  • 32 Puzzle Mode levels for when you want every move to count!
  • An Endless Battle Mode to fight for the highest score you can possibly get!


Every 12,000 years the September Dragon rises from her slumber to grant a wish to the best alchemist in the world. Today, she awakens, and the World Alchemy Tournament begins to determine who is worthy to have their wish granted. Will it be George: the ghost dog, Lars: the reclusive professor, Laila: the mathematician turned mailwoman, or one of the 7 other mighty magicians? That's for you to decide!

Line up elemental tiles to damage your opponent, and use special tiles to blind them, freeze them, and more! Will you focus all your efforts on going straight for the kill, or will you take your opponent down one row at a time? With several difficulty modes and ways to win, there will always be a challenge for you to conquer!

Is it just me, or does the mysterious doll "Alice-Ana" keep changing her voice between grainy and clear?

I simply LOVE the games style in general, voted yes!

(part 2)

Small animations in the backgrounds can go a really long way too. Birds flying by, fires flickering, stuff like that. Nothing giant, just something to give the overall look more life.

I know there's a lot of work that has gone in to it, but get rid of the voice over. It's bad. It brings down the polish of your game. (Oddly enough, it actually kind of sounds like when they used to put voices into old video games before compression and codecs were advanced)

Great Style! Voting Yes. Suggestions for more polish below:

I would love to see a little more excitement added in to the characters while playing the game. If you're not going to animate them, perhaps some more effects behind the actions (when the mail lady is drawn throwing mail, you could very easily do a particle effect with pieces of mail flying about ... etc etc) Better yet would be 3 different effects for each event - one is randomly selected to play when an event happens. This means if you're great at combos, you won't just see the exact same thing happen every time.

It's actually cool to see somebody trying to bring back the puzzle vs games, similar to Dr. Mario, Tetris, Puyo Puyo, Puzzle League, etc. The only downside I had was the bad voice acting. It definitely hurts the appeal of the characters that would otherwise be pretty diverse and interesting.
