. "Pit Blocks 3D started out as a mini-game while I was working on much larger
project," explains SRM Games founder Sebastian Moldovan. "Once I realized its
potential, I decided to see it through with a full-featured release on Steam.
I’m incredibly proud of what we were able to achieve in terms of story,
strategy, and even background action – rarely seen in puzzle games. Pit Blocks
3D is a labor of love, and I’m ecstatic to be able to share it with the world."
The launch trailer
shows off what to expect, and the announcement fills in details on this game,
which started out as a side-project:
Pit Blocks 3D delivers a welcome
twist on traditional Tetris-style gameplay. To start, the action takes place in
a number of fully-realized 3D environments: Fantasy, Ice Cave, Painted Forest,
Solar System, and Volcano. Each environment features a distinct art style and is
rife with minions and bosses that you must vanquish through puzzle-solving. An
individual storyline with unlockable content is revealed at the end of every
The gameplay is also deceptively simple: You’ll need to stack your bricks on all
three axes: X, Y, and Z. Thankfully, the mouse (or gamepad) allows you to view
the playfield from literally every angle – and game modes (Basic, Advanced, and
Expert) have a tangible effect on brick sizes and score. You can essentially
customize the game down to personal preference – and the sort of mood you happen
to be in.
Pit Blocks 3D goes beyond standard puzzle-solving: Perform at a high level to
dodge “ice missiles” fired by minions in the Ice Cave – and face the Troll and
his pal, the fearsome Leviathan, in the Fantasy environment. With more than
20,000 achievements and sheer gameplay variety, Pit Blocks 3D is perfect for a
generous break from the chaos of everyday life.
