  • Summary: Welcome to Block Factory! Block Factory is the place where Falling Block Puzzle Games are created. The game starts in the main hub. From this main hub you can play the four predefined games or any other games you create or acquire. The aim of the games is to avoid filling the playfield till the top. When a block hits the top of the playfield, the game will be over. Sharing and importing games permits unlocking of locked backgrounds and block types. Collapse

  1. The effort has been put in here - it's very easy to make your own Tetris clone by selecting different blocks and a background with the stylus before sharing it with friends via StreetPass or QR codes.

    Block Factory is an attempt to do something different, and it manages it competently while using some of 3DS' functionality well. However, more than anything it's a greatest hits package of some existing block-dropping games with creation options that feel limited. With more fleshed out customisation, even on a stylistic level alone, it could have been something much bigger than it is.

    Block Factory is a neat idea that is too ambitious for its own good.

    It is a good idea from Enjoy Gaming, but sadly the limited customisation options mean games will usually end up roughly the same. For £3.60, this isn't a bad buy if 3DS owners are looking for a game that contains classic puzzle themes and has a reasonable game editor thrown in, but for most people Block Factory simply will not be worth the time or money.

    Won't give Mr. Tajitnov sleepless nights. [Aug 2012, p.80]

    A poorly designed game that allows you to create more poorly designed games, then inflict them on other unfortunates. [June 2012, p.106]

    Think DIY Tetris sounds like an intriguing experience? You couldn't be any more wrong - or, at least, that's what Block Factory has taught us.
