Jump your way through a wacky world of robots, wizards, ninjas and the first ever playable box of robotic French fries! Blocky Bot is a brand-new super action mini-platformer for Wii U.

Blocky Bot (5)

Blocky Bot (6)

Blocky Bot is excellent fun and a brilliant time waster. Downside is it has the life and replay ability of a mobile game. It plays well and has unlocks but with no leader boards or reason to play after unlocking all characters it kind of gets old fast. Shame as it looks cool, plays well and could easily do better with much more content. In short its a mobile game on Wii U. A good mobile game but short lived.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
