BabelBloX offers several games in one, all based in the same basic game universe -- a grid of colored BloX. Clusters of BloX with matching colors can be shattered. Gravity shifts to fill the empty space created, changing the relationships among the remaining BloX. The free trial lets you play the "X Free" game. With a license, you can pick among several games from the BabelBloX menu. Included with BabelBloX are the following game worlds, set in a universe of lickable BloX.
Beat the Clock
This is a race against the clock. And the clock isn't offering any mercy here! This game will get adrenaline pumping in even the quickest thinker's veins.
This is the most challenging game available to date. How evil is it? You'll never know if a screenful of blocks was impossible to solve or just really, really hard. And that will be the lingering question in your mind when there's just one block left, taunting you because it knows you've run out of wands.
while the concept is simple the actual gameplay can be surprisingly addictive — Eddie Park
Inside Mac Games
Start with a three color grid, and work up to progressively more challenging levels.
Based on Classic BabelBloX, this game adds the challenge of a race against the clock for each level.
BloX are morphed into clear Delay BloX when you destroy a cluster. The delay BloX survive until you destroy another cluster, and then they "pop" out of existence.
A relaxing visual treat. This game is sorta like doodling -- you can play it while talking on the phone (don't play it while driving!)
Gravity changes directions each move.
Gravity Delay Pong
Delay BloX add to the challenge of this game.
A volunteer beta tester told us he likes the game, but had some trouble testing it because, "My five-year old daughter taught herself how to play. She loves BabelBloX, so every time I open my PowerBook, she wants to play. For a while, she was better at it than me."
