Tetris, Puyo Puyo, Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo and Lumines are some of the best puzzlers ever made. Soon you can add Blocksum to that equation.

The game is rather simple to learn. Join a number of tiles together by using the Z key, and their corresponding number increases. Gather a large group of blocks with the same number to make them disappear. Grey orbs can be used to remove all blocks with the same number on the field simply by connecting it to a tile.

Hold the X key to move the tiles upward. Press the C key to access a pause menu. Requires the latest DirectX version to run.

Puzzle veterans will love the possibilites of chaining up combos with this one. Highly recommended.

I couldn't get it to work on my PC, and not being in English didn't help matters out.

Looks right up my alley though--I love all the puzzle games you mentioned.

Ahhh! This game is way too addictive. Ideally it should come with a warning! :P

*looks at watch*...and that's the second train I've missed :O

Nice game.

Of course, first it didn't work because my directx was too old.

Then I read your description again, which was so helpful as to point me in the right direction.

00:30AM... Oh, that puzzle game looks neat! Let's try it.

04:25AM... Maybe... time to sleep..?

I second svrman! Slap a Health Warning on there somewhere!
