Simple design, yet breathtaking
Bluk is about a leaping block that finds itself on the top of a very tall pillar in a strange land. The only way forward is to jump on other pillars and this is what our block does. Now it must journey in order to trace the origin of a darkness which is disrupting the world around it. What will strike you about Bluk is how precise your moves have to be. Unlike a lot of other games which have the same minimalist look about them, it is easy to fail in Bluk.
In other games, movement is fairly linear, with one-touch controls helping you move the protagonist right or left. In Bluk, a wider scope of movement is possible and the block can easily slide off a pillar if you use a little more force than is required. For this reason, it is important to consider every step carefully and really exercise your aiming skills. The game looks beautiful and desolate, in the way empty deserts and mountaintops do. Eerie environments come alive in pastel colours and your block is the only thing sentient for miles. The design is simple, yet breathtaking. It will allow you to immerse yourself fully into the game. This is a mobile game that you can really lose yourself in as it requires all of your attention to play it successfully.
There is only one ad per session in Bluk. The game even tells you how many replays you have before the next ad on a little counter at the bottom of the screen. You can also choose to view an ad to be revived after falling off. The game has received a lot of critical acclaim as well, with Pocket Gamer Connects nominating it for the ‘Big Indie Pitch’ award. Bluk is a well-made, refreshingly challenging game that deserves to be played by you.
