Plock for iPhone

Editors' Review

by   / January 05, 2011

Plock is a fast-paced, color-matching arcade game, the fun iOS adaptation of the popular Facebook game of the same name.

Plock is a quick, simple time-waster on Facebook, and it's even more addictive with a touch screen and accelerometer: you break blocks by touching two or more adjacent blocks with matching colors (or eight or more matching blocks for a score-multiplying "Plock"), and if you don't see a match you like, you can shake your device to mix up the blocks. Breaking blocks helps you earn bombs, which are then randomly assigned to existing blocks to give you more block-busting power. The game has both Classic and Survival modes: in Classic mode, you have a minute to rack up as many points as possible; in scoreless Survival mode you're just trying to advance to ever-higher levels, by filling a rapidly depleting progress bar. Both modes reward strategy and planning, but Plock's frantic pace means you'll need a lot of practice to score high on the leaderboard (and Plock lets you share your scores via OpenFeint, Game Center, Twitter, and, of course, Facebook).

Plock's gameplay and features are a little thin for a paid app, but if you're already a fan of the game, Plock is definitely worth downloading for your iOS device.
