a new bontegame: 25

Time for a new bontegame! It's a small puzzler I made in between a larger project, it's called 25 and you can play it in your browser or get it as a free app for Android on Google Play here. A version for iOS has also been submtted and I'll let you know when it gets approved by Apple.
So how to play 25? Use the cursor keys (in the browser) or swipe the screen (on mobile) to move all the blocks and push same numbered block together to level up. Red blocks will block you, match 3 or more red blocks in a row (horizontally or vertically) to remove them. I'm curious to find out your best score, so make sure to leave a comment with your score, or use the built in twitter button to tweet your score, I'll be monitoring those tweets too! I hope you enjoy 25 and if you do, please share it, rate it and tweet it, cheers!

1771! Is that any good?

2304, but mostly by luck as I had some problems at the beginning to figure out how the blocks are moving

3826. It is a fun game with just a bit more complexity than 2048, but also with a bigger board.

586! but I was playing with my left hand :P

tam said...

586 again... I bet it's quite difficult to reach the same result again and again, eh?!

AHHHH damn you Bart. It took me forever to finally beat 2048 now I have to play this until I win. Great game but maybe give a "warning you will need redbull" tomorrow the day before the release

Hi Bart
Excellent game 3124 first play

madandyb said...

Got as far as 2630.

SilkeH6 said...

First time playing it: 1306 with as highest number a 7. It's hard because there is a very slow reaction time. The blocks only move after you've pushed a second time and then you easily lose sight of where you were supposed to go, since the second push is also counted.

Bart said...

Hi Silke, the slow reaction you experience is not normal. Maybe there's another taxing process running on your pc?

Where'd the comment go with the link to the article about clone games?

Bart said...

URLs get most of the time eaten by my spam filter. I hope you're not suggesting this is a clone.

tam said...

My best score so far: 5086 with a 9 tile and having fun! :)

Sorry Bart, I got to 2382 before I got bored. It seemed like I could go on forever if I cared to. I like your games a lot, but this time it seems like you were influenced a lot by the recent crop of "combine the numbers" games. I think your own original game ideas are better and more fun. But thank you for all your games.

Robin said...

2038 Level 7 my first time playing!

Awesome game! This game could be very addicting, so I'm going to run away from my computer right now or I'll never get anything done for the rest of the week.1

4tje said...

1230 on first try, but I had the same problems as Silke, Bart! =( Not sure why...

tam said...

@Wow:
Sorry! No video :(
But I have a print screen (useless for you, source of pride for me):

On the computer, SilkeH6, mine's also reeeally slow. My computer just sent me a message saying if I continue with this page, my computer will become unresponsive. Don't want that. Looks like I won't be able to play this one, but I'd really love too. None the less, thanks for the game Bart.

Riiick said...

If my maths is right you would need to combine 16,777,216 tiles to get a 25 tile!

Anonymous said...

@Wow: sorry, neither video, nor a screenshot ...
good luck, Anonymous 05:23 :)

@Riiick
I think you stopped one spot too soon...each tile past 2 = the previous tiles * 2 + 2... so to get a 3 you need 2*2+2=6 and to get a 5 you need 2*14+2=30 and so on. So for a 25 you need 2*16777214+2= 33,554,430 not to mention all of the other close to 25 numbers you would have to make plus the reds. Given the minimum connections at .1 sec per it would take over a month to beat this game unless later the game starts dropping higher numbers. I scored 6290 so far

First time playing it, I got a 10.
Second time playing it, I got a 10.
I'm in the middle of my third runthrough and I am loving this game. (You can tell I don't care too much about score, more about maximum tile.)
Bart Bonte, if you're reading this, I challenge you to make this game on Puzzlescript. You can, of course, use any existing number combine games to help you get your base code (Puzzlescript Threes is likely a good choice to begin working from). If you can showcase many Puzzlescript games, and you can make your own non-Puzzlescript puzzle games, I think it should be no problem.

Argh ! I'm exhausted...
I think the 10 block wasn't so far but "game over" : I miss it...
I'll try again but not now : I didn't think a game was so long.

Excellent addictive game !!!

deodato said...

Yayy 5329 with a 9 and a 8, I want a 10 !! (so addictive, tx Bart, waiting for the iOS one)

Emily said...

726! (First time) Addictive!

Emily said...

5856! (one 9 and one 8)

Joshua Raven said...

such a great concept - great fun too!

Bart said...

There's now a FREE version of the game for iPhone and iPad too:

dyork said...

Do not like. Mindless play inevitably ending in death. I'll wait for something more interesting.

Louping said...

Yeeees !
I've got the 10 !!!
my best score 12619

Et vive l'autosave ;)

Anonymous said...

Congrats @Louping! You are excellent!!! :D

Benny C. said...

7117. I think there's not so much motivation though when theres no final point or endgoal. 25 is the theoretical upper limit but practically its almost impossible so

Emily said...

Mr. Bonte,
I'm not sure what I did that caused it, but there appears to be an invisible block on my board. I moving the blocks around, but no matter what arrow I push, no block moves into the spot, even though it is empty. New blocks come out of that spot, making me think that there are blocks there, they're just not visible for some reason.

Gamergrrl54 said...

Awesome game Bart! Super addicting and really fun!

Emily said...

You can continue your game? Awesome!

Emily said...

Okay, phantom block is back, and this time it caused me to lose!

Bart said...

@Emily Is that on mobile or in the browser? Can you send me a screenshot please (bontegames@gmail.com) Thanks!

Anonymous said...

Sorry. I usually love barts games. I tend also to be able to solve them. but this game tells me nothing. Nothing at all. I do not know what to do, and after an hour I still do not. When you press the arrow keys, it is random which numbers move? There is no sense or logic. Just some numbers that are higher and some red cubes Arrggg ....:-p I was so happy when I saw that there was a new Bart Bonte game. I went jogging clothes. Downloaded food, candy and soda because now there having fun .... but no .... I got a long nose.

Bart said...

Ok let me try to explain more clearly:
When you push an arrow key, all blocks move together in that direction, until they hit a wall.
With each move a new block appears on the board.
It is your mission to push a 1 on a 1 to form a 2 block.
A 2 and a 2 form a 3 block and so on.
The higher blocks you make, the more points you get.
But there are also red blocks, without a number that will get in your way.
When you align 3 or more red blocks horizontally or vertically they will disappear.
I hope the game is clear now :) Cheers!

Unknown said...

Best so far is 18998, still trying to get that 11 block. Has anyone managed to do that yet?

Bart said...

Wow 18998 is really amazing! You should tweet your score! Best so far is 14267 :)

Emily said...

Mr. Bonte,
It's one the browser, and I sent you an email.

Seaduckie said...

Love this game! Though I'm not really good at it. But I'll keep on trying to improve my highscore of 2723.

Francesca said...

Bart, I have been coming to your website for the past 8 years playing the games you list as well as your own super clever and creative games.
I finally have a smart phone and my first download is '25'! Very addictive and will keep me occupied for hours. Thank you!

tam said...

My new record: 7264!
And of course I've been playing every day :)
So relaxing! Thank you, Bart.

My highest number is only 8. Highest score is only 2799

8897 with a 10

Angela said...

current best score on android: 6136. Highest tile: 9. I wish I could get to that 10!!

Maybe if there was an "undo" button... you could go back and figure out where you went wrong and see if there is a way to win without having to start over!

I did 11654 :)

my highscore is 17195 and i got level 11, but i don't think anyone will ever hit level 25. that's a bit frustrating for such an addicting game.
