  • Summary: The award-winning hit board game from Mattel arrives on the iPad for an even more true-to-life experience than ever! Enjoy the iPad exclusive Pass & Play mode where you and your friends can all play around one device, just like the real game! (Except here, you won’t lose any blocks under a table!)

    You liked UNO™? You are going to LOVE Blokus™!

    RULES ARE SIMPLE!
    The winning strategy: Block your opponents so they cannot add anymore blocks on the board! Blokus™ is a strategy game that will captivate you and get into your mind.

    4 GAMES IN ONE
    Each game variation requires a totally different strategy:
    • 4 players control one color each
    • 2 players control two colors each
    • 4 players play in teams
    • Blokus Duo™: There are only 2 colors, the board is smaller and the start position is in the middle of the board.

    MULTIPLAYER MODE
    Compete in any of these game variations through:
    - Pass & Play mode, only on the iPad!
    - Local Multiplayer via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
    - Online Multiplayer via Wi-Fi
    Compare your scores on leader boards on Gameloft LIVE!

    CAREER MODE

    Those who haven't gotten their touch-based Blokus on yet should do so with this enhanced iPad version.

    Blokus was released on the iPhone and iPod Touch earlier this year, but the iPad-only HD version of the game feels much better thanks to the increased screen acreage.

    A little Tetris, a little GO and a lot of contested space: This mobile conversion of a classic boardgame is very entertaining.

    It's a great puzzler for the iPhone and an even better board game substitute for the iPad. The bigger display offers a bright, crisp playfield where four people can easily swap pieces as if it was the real-deal.
