Blocky Roll: Dev Diary

Blocky Roll is a puzzle game for mobile devices but it also includes some mechanics found in platforming and adventure games.  

You control the central character, Blocky in a bid to solve levels throughout a myriad of themed worlds.  Blocky moves through these levels and worlds in search of his brain and by progressing through levels Blocky learns and discovers new things. 

The central theme to Blocky Roll is education.  Through gameplay elements, Blocky Roll will raise awareness and funds to support charitable organisations to build and operate schools in third world communities and to bring the opportunity of education to children all over the world.
