Weekly Time Waster – ‘Block Master’

Rate this item
(0 votes)

Often, simple is better when it comes to time wasting. If you’ve only got a few minutes to kill, you don’t necessarily want to get involved with something that is overlong or that features complex gameplay. You just want to click around for a few minutes, maybe solve a puzzle and then call it a day.

“Block Master” is that sort of simple game. Basically, you have a game board featuring an input and output. Assorted shapes are scattered about. Your aim is to shift the shapes around and clear a path that allows unblocked travel from the input to the output.

That’s it – that’s all there is to it.

There’s not a lot of nuance here. The game is graphically and strategically basic – and that’s great. You’re not investing an afternoon here – with just 16 levels, you might even finish the whole thing in that gap between meetings. And it is fun – particularly if you’re a fan of this sort of spatial relations puzzler. It’s a deft time killer – precisely the type of game that suits this space.

Are there superior games to “Block Master” out there? Absolutely. But if you’re in the mood to just sit down for 10 minutes and goof around with some relatively easy (but still engaging) puzzle time, then you could definitely do a lot worse. Play for free at
