    Blek is about imagination, curiosity and experimenting. It's about personality, your own style and temper. But most of all - it's about PLAYING.

    A simple goal, to shape a line that collects all colored circles avoiding black holes on its route, can be a challenging one, but through minimalistic, beautiful design Blek reminds you that all you need to do is to play [with] it. There are no specific moves that you need to master. To every level countless solutions exist, from delightfully simple to exceptionally deep and complex, yet always elegant.

    There are no instructions. No tutorials. No spoilers. And I will keep my brother busy, preventing him from explaining game mechanics.

    Blek isn't for everyone, and I'm sure it will divide some Wii U owners. But if you approach the game with the right attitude – and accept the game's minimalistic approach to game design – then you might find it to be one of the best puzzle games available in the Wii U eShop.

    Even with the occasional bout of frustration, Blek is mostly a marvel in how it’s designed. The organic way that it unfolds is amazing. While the Wii U version might not be the ideal way to experience it, Blek is still something worth looking at, even if it’s just as a curiosity.

    Strained braincells and hand cramps aside, this is a unique and beautifully crafted puzzler which is as admirable for its artistic approach as it is for its fresh mechanics.

    Minimal to the max, this would be an adequate way of presenting Blek. Without any additional or superfluous elements, Blek is all about putting the stylus to the GamePad and guiding the line. A very challenging puzzle game with a perhaps too steep learning curve, but which will be welcomed by many.

    With a bit more time and a few new features, Blek has all the ingredients to become a strong entry into the puzzle world, should a sequel ever transpire.
