a new bontegame: blocky xmas [mobile]

Hohoho, it's a fine tradition here at bontegames that I make a Christmas themed game every year, well, it's time to ring those Christmas bells because here's my new game 'Blocky XMAS'! (Inspired by the flash game 'a blocky Christmas' with 16 levels that I made a couple of years ago, but different and bigger and better!)
You are the star and you are magnetic. Can you put all the Christmas tree blocks into place in 40 levels of Christmassy puzzle fun?
The app is 100% free, so what are you waiting for? Get it now for your iPhone/iPad or Android phone/tablet by clicking your favourite app store below:



The game is absolutely free, but it has one in-app purchase 'premium unlock' if you want to support bontegames (It will also remove the ads you see when you ask for help and adds a skip level button).
Let me know what you think about the game in the comments! Enjoy my new game, spread the word, merry Christmas and happy puzzling!
If you don't own a mobile device, a browser version of the game is coming later this year, cheers!

I usually love your games, but this app was very hard to control. Sometimes the block would go 1 square too far, and there was no "undo" button to help remedy the bad controls. (My finger would end up nowhere near the block when moving it)

Bart said...

Well you can swipe anywhere on the screen, so no need to be on the star block at all when swiping, I think that works way better? Also, it's a 'step' game so swiping in steps might work better?

What a lovely puzzle game Bart, thank you so much! Premium unlock bought!

Yes! Amazing! And high-fiving Santa after completing a level is so satisfying :)

Yes Bart, nice game [and no commercials for me ;-)]!

Hespetre said...

Nice game, thanks! I liked the one from a couple of years back, too.
So cute that you have to hi-five the Santa to get to the next level!

Amazing! As always! Thank you Bart for another clever puzzle game!

I love the first version of this game, and am very happy to see this. I get a kick out of the Santa high-five. I do find the controls a bit fiddly, though. While it works better once you know you don't have to be on the star and can swipe in steps, I still find it a lot more awkward than the browser version. Still, great game!

Hi Cindy, all my mobile games are available on Amazon Kindle, just search for Bart Bonte.
'Blocky XMAS' is coming too, it takes a bit longer on Amazon, I expect it to be there next week.
About the other mobile games I post here: I always check if they are available on Amazon, but most of the times they are not. If they are, there is an Amazon link too.
And I did reply to your level 14 question on the bontegames facebook page some time ago :)
Cheers!

Love all your games but keep Christ in Christmas Bart!!!

I'm having fun with this one - challenging enough that I'm not just zooming through, but easy enough to be achievable :-)

Kiel Blanton said...

Awesome game, downloaded and couldn't stop playing it. Now I've beaten it and wishing there were more levels!

@Itchy Booger - Christmas was a pagan celebration that Christianity hijacked to spread its beliefs. Nowhere in the Bible are people instructed to celebrate Jesus' birth. Where do you get off claiming ownership of it?

X-mas as a shorthand form for Christmas is connected to the Greek word for Christ, which is "Christos". The "Ch" sound in Greed is represented by a letter that looks like an X.

"GreeK", not "GreeD". Whoops!

Lizzie!! said...

Loved the app, though I accidentally hit the help me button way too often, which would reset my progress (and cause me to watch ads I didn't need to). >={ But, that was me swiping carelessly. It was fun! Merry Christmas!

Itchy Booger said...

Merry Christmas Kiel Blanton! 😉

Very nice "Stickyban"! (Draknek's expression).
The high fiving Santa is brilliant :)

Very nice game,loved it - although like Lizzie I had several times the issue of touching accidentally the "help" button... which means you need to wait, skip the ad, and start again the level from the beginning.... well I guess it probably depends on how one moves his fingers.....
