  1. Despite the horrible name and the similarities to Lumines, Empty Clip has produced what's probably the best available game on the WiiWare.
  2. Groovin' Blocks is one of those games that can be hard to explain, but it is easy to pick up and understand once you play it. It's special among WiiWare games for being such a well-rounded, complete package and for avoiding common gimmicks like misplaced motion control and garish Mii integration.
  3. What is most surprising about this game is how it takes such simple concepts and makes them their own and have them work in a perfect mesh of puzzle and musical rhythm.
  4. Weighing the minimal problems of Groovin' Blocks against the things it does right, I find that the game's benefits far outweigh its issues. Fans of not only rhythm games, but of old-school puzzlers will find plenty to fall in love with here.

    While its nothing new it does provide some enjoyment to those looking for a new puzzle title and have had enough with the other ones on the market.

    As close as you'll get to "Lumines" on WiiWare, but good in its own right. [Dec 2008, p.85]
  7. Groovin' Blocks is a fun puzzle game that feels both familiar and fresh, thanks to the one gimmick it sports.
  8. 76
    The multiplayer modes are fun, but leaderboards would have enhanced the competitive atmosphere. As a first effort from Empty Clip Studios, Groovin' Blocks is pretty impressive.
