Empty Clip Studios' Managing Partner Matt Shores has shared a trailer video and announced that beginning today Groovin' Blocks is available on PlayStation Network.
To quote: This is Matt from Empty Clip Studios. We're a small game developer that aims to put out games that you'll want to play over and over.
We're stoked to spread the word about our first PlayStation Network title, Groovin' Blocks. Groovin' Blocks is a genre-bending music-based puzzle game.
Many times people give it a quick look and say "Wait, isn't this just a match-3 game?" HELL no! If you love graphics-based block puzzles and games set to rocking beats, then Groovin' Blocks is your gaming dream come true.
In Groovin' Blocks, you play directly with the beat of the music. See those bright moving columns on the side? You will notice that as the song plays, they come towards the board where all of your blocks are falling.
Once they hit the side, they will "flash" and disappear. That flashing is where you want to hit down on the SIXAXIS controller and settle your blocks. Sounds easy, doesn't it? Well, now you add on that match-3 component and you have yourself something you'll want to play all day long.
But that's not all! We give you bonuses and a player vs player mode where those bonuses become weapons against your opponent. When you feel like kissing and making up for the destruction you've caused, we also give you a co-op mode that really sets the game apart. I dare you to cooperate and survive long enough to finish the song.
One of the features we're most proud of is our online scoreboard. You can make online friends and strangers green with envy by crushing their high scores on their favorite songs. We've also added challenging trophies for the hard core Trophy hunters. The game is running at smooth 60 frames-per-second in full 1080p resolution. Mmmmmm... 1080p, yum!
We really enjoyed making this game. Sony Online Entertainment also deserves some props for all of their support.
I really hope you enjoy Groovin' Blocks. There is no fix it patch if you can't stop playing. Groovin' Blocks is available on the PlayStation Store for $9.99. Also, be sure to look for the Groovin' Blocks trailer, free theme and wallpapers in the Store this Thursday! Have fun!
