Monday Mind Teasers: Road Blocks

Nov 30 // Tom Fronczak    @Fronztoid

Many of you will know exactly how this week's game is played just by looking at the picture above. There's been dozens of these ball bounce puzzle mazes over the years, and they never get old to me. With this one being released wayyyy back in 2004, chances are good you've even played it in the past. Trust me, it doesn't get any less stressful on each replay!

It might look as simple as navigating from point A to point B, but with the majority of the maze's walls missing, it makes choosing the correct path much more difficult. Add in a few teleport and other trick blocks, and you've got yourself a game that I'm sorry to torture you with so late at night. Good luck finishing the rest of your homework now!

Last week a few of you brought up that you miss the old format of these Monday Mind Teasers, and guess what? Me too! The problem is that I had been doing them every week for almost three years, and was starting to run out of game covers and themes to use! You can count on me going back and forth every few months, so that I get a regular buffer to work with. Keep an eye out for the return of the old format soon!

You can play Road Blocks here on Newgrounds.

P.S. Tomorrow is your last chance to vote on last week's Super Mario series game debate!
