WHAT’S GOOD This woodsy take on Tetris couldn’t be any simpler. Once you tap on the arrow to begin a game, several wooden blocks of various shapes appear. Drag and drop one piece at a time onto the 10-by-10 puzzle grid with a goal to clear horizontal rows as you continue. The more rows you clear, the higher your score climbs. One of the first times playing, we were thrilled to get a personal best of 668. After playing much longer, it became clear how unimpressive that score actually was. As you keep playing, you’ll discover the best places to drop wooden blocks, improve your strategy and watch your score zoom into five digits. The game also has a cerebral quality as it gives your brain a workout. At the same time, it’s a good way to just chill. The latest version also features more updated puzzles.
WHAT’S NOT There’s no such thing as a free app, judging by the annoying ads that pop up after each round of play.
BOTTOM LINE A good fit for lovers of jigsaw puzzles or Tetris.
