Back in March, I was able to attend the Game Developers Conference aka GDC. It was quite the experience since I had never been to anything like it. In fact, it was one of the things that inspired me to create PewPewCat in the first place. I fell in love with the whole world of indie games then. One of the games that I actually got to try was Tumblestone.
Tumblestone is a single to multi-player, puzzle action game. In this game, you have to shoot three of the same “Tumblestones” to get rid of them and display the blocks behind it. However, it is a puzzle game. So if you run out of matches, you have to restart the entire puzzle.
In the multiplayer mode, this becomes the bane of your existence. The first one to solve the puzzle wins that round. The person who wins the most puzzles in the given amount of time, wins the game. It’s quite difficult to keep up and becomes very competitive quick. Tumblestone can be played in competitive local to online multiplayer and even a single player story mode.
Tumblestone was definitely a highlight at GDC this past year and is totally a fun game to chill with friends and play. I played this with a couple of my friends and it was hilarious how competitive it got while we played it. Who knew that shooting blocks of three could get so competitive? If anything, it’s fun to watch people play it as well in competitive mode.
Tumblestone is also a great game for the whole family to play. All it is is collecting blocks of three, seeing patterns and planning ahead, something that benefits the player. It’s a fun game and I totally recommend it.
