Block Blocks is fun to say, perhaps fun to play

Minimalistic tower defense-esque puzzling

From its description as a "tower defense-inspired puzzle game," Block Blocks doesn't sound amazing, but in motion it looks like it could be quite hectic, and it almost has an early Bit.Trip aesthetic to it. The gameplay is explained succinctly in the title: players must draw lines in order to stop the blocks from moving in particular directions.

Mostly, I like the name. It reminds me of the hypothetical WiiWare game that RetroForceGO came up with, Puzzle Puzzle Puzzle. I wonder if we could get a coalition of Block Blocks enthusiasts together, to form a Block Blocks bloc. Then we can sell predatory birds (hawk hawks), punch woolen footwear (sock socks), and maybe even waterproof roosters (I'll leave this one up to you to figure out).

Block Blocks, Block Blocks, all you do to me is Block Blocks.
