Humans love blocks. It might not be something everyone realises, but we do... think about it. What are some of the most popular games of all time? Pong... moving blocks. Tetris...falling blocks. Breakout... move a block to remove other blocks. The list goes on.
Since gaming began millions of hours have been lost to block based gameplay and probably none more than on Tetris for the original Gameboy. Generations of gamers grew up with that and its popularity proved that the genre and portable gaming were ideally matched.
Enter Electronic Symphony, the latest in the Lumines franchise, which brings falling block based gameplay to Sony's new handheld, the PS Vita. This isn't just a Tetris clone though; the developers have taken the basic concept and expanded it massively. Today we find out if they have managed to keep the same addictive style of play while bringing something new and fresh to the genre.
