Description

The pillars still stood tall, but a darkness grew among them. No one could find out why or how, but the foundations were disrupted. Someone would have to travel the timelines to bring back the harmony...

Explore dreamlike worlds and unlock multiple skills to overcome their unique challenges as you play as Bluk in this skill based physics platformer. You can either follow the abstract storyline & complete the game to enter the Hall of Fame. Or Carry on with the endless challenges.

HOW TO PLAY
Touch and drag on screen to form a trajectory. Release to jump and navigate the platforms.

History

Started out as an experimental idea to see if players can relate to the character, if the game is outlined by a story, surrounded by various aspects of life, even if the character has no face or defining visual characteristic. Thus a black block, the three dimensional equivalent of a blank canvas or blackboard, and various worlds carefully designed with mood inducing color palette, aesthetics and soundscape .

Features

  • One-touch gameplay.
  • Minimal, beautiful aesthetics and ambient soundscape.
  • Story mode with an ending coupled with endless mode.
  • Competitive global leaderboards and more than 45 achievements.
