Upcoming Minimalist Puzzler ‘Bloki’ Will Twist Your Brain into Knots in Mid-May

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

An interesting new trailer crossed our news desk today, and the more I watch it the more it makes my brain hurt. But in a good way. It’s for an upcoming puzzler called Bloki from developer Junkhive, and I think they do a pretty good job of succinctly describing it here: “Bloki is a minimal, clean and mind-bending game with a simple goal each level – twist, turn, and build the structure to place the blocks on the points that match their color. With additional elements, like color switching tiles or obstacles, the game gets more and more interesting as it progresses. It also helps you train your spatial intelligence, as well as visualising and manipulating three dimensional space in your head.” Here’s the trailer.

Using the touchscreen, you’ll be able to rotate and position the group of blocks to your liking, as well as add on blocks as needed. The goal is to get the floating colored points aligned with the same colored blocks of the little structure you’re building. But that’s not all! “Some levels have tiles that change the colors of the blocks, some have points which must remain empty, and others have obstacles which restrict your movement.” It all sounds like some masochistic twist on the Rubik’s Cube, which is music to my ears. If you enjoy these types of challenging puzzlers that force you to think in three dimensional space, then look for Bloki to launch on iOS in mid-May for just 99¢.

Review: CUBE Is a Bluetooth Tracker with a Twist

There are a lot of Bluetooth tracking gadgets vying for your money, but there are some specific things you should look for when choosing one. For example, the CUBE Tracker ($ 24.95) from Blue Sky Homes is water resistant and works with a replaceable battery. That means it’s going to last longer than those other guys who have a non-replaceable battery and could get damaged in the rain or at the pool.

The primary purpose of the CUBE Tracker is to detect your gadgets using the free app, but the CUBE goes beyond that and serves as a Bluetooth shutter remote so you can take that selfie from 30 feet away. You can also use the button to find your phone. My only request would be to offer more color choices for every family member’s gadgets. 

CUBE

Pros

  • Water resistant
  • Replaceable battery
  • Bluetooth shutter remote
  • Find your Phone
  • Rubbery exterior

Cons

  • More color choices would be nice

Final Verdict

If you are looking for a Bluetooth tracking accessory, the CUBE Tracker from Blue Sky Homes should be high on your list.
