Hello all you New Grounders,

Welcome to our latest game, Block Squad, which is something of a re-work of our previous title, Knightfall. As a member of the squad it's your job to save the city from an infestation of pesky blocks, retrieving the city's valuables (such as cats, burgers and ice cream) to unlock the exit to the next level.

On each level you will need to collect a certain amount of items before the exit opens, but you have a limited number of moves in which to do this. To move your squaddie around the board you will have to both remove blocks beneath them and rotate the board. Blocks can be removed from the board simply by clicking to highlight them, then clicking again to clear them. Removing groups of 3 or more blocks will only cost you one move, removing a pair of blocks will cost you 2 moves, and removing a single block will cost you 4, so make every move count! The board itself can be rotated by clicking the arrow on either side of it, or by using the left arrow, 'A' or 'Z' keys to rotate left, and the right arrow, 'S' or 'X' keys to rotate right.

Points are awarded for completing a level quickly and efficiently, but the biggest bonuses are to be had by collecting as many items as possible. The metal blocks can't be cleared and are generally a bit of a nuisance, but nothing more. The key to success is realising that you don't necessarily have to move your squaddie, rather that you can move items or indeed the exit instead.

Finally, you can also use 'Esc' or 'P' to pause the game if you fancy a breather, and 'F' to enter full-screen mode. Hope you enjoy the game and please let us know what you think of it!

Nice one,

The Megadev team.

Thanks for the slot on the front page Tom and everyone else at NG! :-) Just uploaded a new version which features a new and hopefully better tutorial - thanks for all the great feedback so far!

Not up to the challenge

It has already been done and it has been done better.

The music was repetitive, and there was nothing that drew me into the game.

Points for good coding and a puzzle game with decent graphics.

Good Quality As Usual

This has got to be one of the best flash games you guys have developed so far! The gameplay was refreshing and original, like the first time I played Bomboozle. The graphics were impressive as always and the music was pretty nice most of the time.

This game should appeal to anyone, regardless of age, and reminds me of any old SNES game, in a good way. You should seriously think about getting this flash game onto an iPhone or Nintendo DS...
