XBLA review: Astropop (4/10)

Astropop is a decent game, kind of a combination of Klax and Tetris. Match four or more bricks of the same color, taking advantage of bonus blocks, eliminating dangerous blocks, and using your super weapon every now and then.

That's about it. It's really an '80s-type game, down to the each-level-is-faster-and-harder philosophy. There isn't really much there to draw you in. Either you like that type of game, or it's just a decent game. Most achievements require either a lot of game play or quite a bit of skill, so after a while, most people will end up putting this game on the shelf.

If you're big into puzzle games, then you might take a look at this, but aside from that, I'd wait and play it at someone else's house.

zlionsfan's rating: 4 bricks out of 10.
