I had my hands on a very similar game recently called Unlock from Miniclip. But it had lots of issues as it lagged and froze while rendering the 3D gameplay, especially on my single core iPhone 4. Interlocked takes out all the garbage from it and presents an arcade style fluid game.
You are given a set of blocks which are interlocked together and all you have to do, is separate the pieces Swipe outside the blocks to turn and explore around it and when you strike something, swipe over the piece in a desired direction to move it.
Sounds easy? Oh boy, you’re so wrong! Finding the correct sequence of moving & removing each block and parting them one by one can take much more time than you think. This is a game of observation. Observe, Think and Act to win levels.
The game is divided into 4 sets of 9 levels each, which differ in their difficulty and the theme of blocks. After each level, you are rated out of three stars, based on the time taken and the difficulty status. As you pass from wood to paper to steel to candy, your head starts steaming and you might crave for some clues. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any way to skip a level or ask for a hint. Perhaps, the developers aren’t too greedy to involve IAPs but what if I am stuck on a level? Would certainly love to see someway around this.
The interface is simple & clean while sound effects are minimal. I would have liked an option to play songs from my library but is no big deal. The animations are crisp and the controls do exactly what you intend. Maybe because I am a puzzles fan, but I can’t put this game down and if you do share my passion , I’m sure you couldn’t either.
