Lumines has ruled the music-infused block-puzzler roost for too long. Groovin’ Blocks may not have the slick ‘rightness’ of that rhythmical tyrant, but its ideas are at least fresh. Just like Columns, the aim is to link three blocks of similar color. Drop the blocks in time with the music’s beat and you’ll build a score multiplier. Keeping up with the beat adds even more intensity to the hectic act of color arranging. If only it let us revel in our brilliance with online leaderboards.
