Blek for Android

A minimalist game has made the leap from iOS to Android called Blek, which definitely qualifies as one of our top Android game releases for the month. This puzzle title has been earning accolades from all over for its wonderfully fresh mechanics. Players are presented with a series of circles that have to be popped before moving onto the next stage. Black spots are peppered in between; touch those and you have to start over. The way you hit those targets is by tracing a single gesture on the screen which is then repeated on its own over and over after you lift your finger. The line can be as simple as a short swipe that continues moving forward, but more often then not you'll have to get pretty creative to continue on.

Blek really is refreshing. The flat minimalist graphics aren't exactly brand new, but the subtle sound effects that use wind and voice acting make for something altogether otherworldly, not to mention the gameplay is clearly made for mobile first. Blek is definitely worth picking up for $2.99 if you're in the market for something different. Blek is also on the Amazon store if you're rocking a Kindle Fire.
