Pit Blocks 3D Released

Pit Blocks 3D is now available, offering a Windows cube-matching game that takes the venerable Tetris concept into a third dimension. This carries a 20% launch discount, and you can pick up a copy through Game Jolt, Humble, itch.i.o, or Steam. "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 level.

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.
