Release – 2017-8 – Blockman Returns

It’s never too early to rescue a Blocklet or two!

Blockman returns to an old familiar landscape, in this remake of the original Blockman platform game.

You can Download Blockman Returns here for Windows, play it in your browser, or find it on your Razer Forge TV (via Cortex) or other Droid-TV device of choice, once it’s gotten through review!

The Brief

Gather up as many of the Blocklets as you can, and guide them back to their Home.
Hop up and down the extents of the level to help you along your way, but keep a watchful eye incase any ghosties are about to fall on you!

Controls

– Move
– Jump

How not to Lose

Don’t let the ghosts touch you!

What I didn’t do/Possible Improvements

I didn’t add the fruit.
I thought about adding the fruit, but in the end decided not to bother.
Hopefully the fruit won’t be missed. I certainly haven’t missed them.

    Lot of thought has gone into the title screen animation, it has come out very well. The different retro music for each level feels good. The scoring system adds nicely to the difficulty of the game.
    I’ll have to play without the thought of the scores to find all the levels.
    How many levels are there? Is there a win screen after all the levels?

    • There are 64 floor layouts, but otherwise the “objects” (blocklets, ghosties, spikes, ice, etc) get placed at random each time, but with rules so they don’t end up floating in mid-air or other such silliness!
      There are only 5 “themes”, though. I’m not THAT imaginative 😉

        Managed to go till level 6. The first 5 levels seem to be of different themes and from level 6 they are repeating with a different floor layout out of the 64.
