    Went from $5 to $2. Anyone played it? Wasn't able to find any videos. How does it handle?

    It looks like a tetris played in all 4 directions but the gameplay itself is not clear in its description.

    Scrap! (forum topic) seems to be similar.

    I'm curious about it too.

    I reviewed this game elsewhere... but here are some of my thoughts...

    The game is actually pretty slow and anything that you would like about the game gets lost in that. Also, the controls are a little jittery, meaning that just when you think the block is in place is moves on you.

    The idea behind the game is sort of like Tetris only you are trying to make a complete perimeter instead of just lines. I liked the idea of it but when you see how big the field it you can see that it's going to take a long time just to make your first fence. The game offers 20 different levels, but really all you have are 20 different speeds.

    I also reviewed block knights and found that game to be a much better take on the theme. You've got four sides to place your blocks but you're still just making lines instead of fences. You've also got "mobs" that you have to take out. The controls for Block Knights were also near perfect. The blocks move very smoothly, like floating in water.

    If you're interested in either of these games I would go with Block Knights.

    Well, I'm not too sold on taking out "mobs" ... I hate enemies in puzzle games.

    Happened to see you were talking about us :). Block Knights offers more than just the one mode where you kill mobs. We also have three other modes, two of which are timed and one that is just a play at your own pace type. none of the other three modes have anything to do with killing mobs :). Oh we are also on sale right now for 2.99!

    Whew, for a moment there I was afraid you were the devs for Perimetros :D

    Do you promise me that if I buy your game you WON'T lower the price for at least three months? Bonus points if you raise it :D

    Well BitCaper does love bonus points! haha:D. And 2.99 is a promotional price so it very well could go up, depending on the amount of content that goes into the next update. But it wont be going down:D

    Yeah... I only brought up a bit of the game. It's fun and has some nice modes to play in. I pimped it a bit more in the "Block Knights" Thread...
