Dodge Blocks for points as they fall. If you get the high score, u cool. WARNING Pausing restarts! Pause menu is a free moving mode. WARNING don't bump the play buttons! Have fun.

It's funny at first, but the game is nothing too interesting.

I am typing this review right now while playing Dodge Falling Boxes. My score is over 300 and is still rising. How you may ask? Because this game is broken!!! You can park yourself in the bottom-left corner, and that's all you need to do to win. It's a massive oversight that needs to be fixed.

The object of the game is to dodge as many rainbow-coloured blocks that fall from the sky as you can in hopes of getting a high score, basically another endless high score game.
I hate to say it, but there's almost nothing positive that can be said about Dodge Falling Boxes. The epic music is ruined by the exact same bell sound effect for the box spawn. Background is a cookie-cut wallpaper with all clouds in the exact same position. Pausing the game penalties you by taking away all of your scores! Controls are never explained anywhere! (use the arrows on your keyboard to move your character, use your mouse to click on the pause button should you ever want to rage).

Before discovering the corner exploit, I played this game legitimately, got a score of 100, and nothing ever picked up. Difficulty never increases, and is just the same falling box patterns over and over and over. There is no "skill" in this skill genre based game because the amount of effort you have to put in to dodge will have you falling asleep. If this game ever gets remade, it needs more than just falling boxes, it needs to get harder after a certain amount of time, it needs more playable characters (which can be done for a game this small), it needs more game modes to keep players interested, and it needs to make the high score feel more important. The creator released a game that isn't ready! Dodge Falling Boxes needs to be pulled from the website if possible, and then worked on more, If it can't be done then mark this as a demo, and release a more complete version later. We can clearly see that the game isn't ready for public.

Final Verdict: 2 out of 10
