Editor's review

You know what they say: when it comes to life it's different strokes for different folks. The same can probably be said for the games we play on our smartphones as we travel to and from work to keep us amused. Some people want games like Candy Crush to get them through their morning commute while others want things like Angry Birds or fighting games. Some want complicated and some want simple. I see a squillion different games being played when I peer over a fellow traveler's shoulder every morning on the bus. 

From my observations, they just can't be too simple for some people. Not that there's anything to be ashamed of by playing those types of games. I'm pretty sure someone laughed when Tetris was first presented to them back in the early days. Pretty much the simplest of all games are the ones that involve tapping. The idea for most of them is to get the old hand/eye co-ordination working well before the real work begins at the office. 

TapBlock Original is a new, fun game for Android and iOS that is right up there with the best of 'em when it comes to tapping games. It's a simple premise. You'll see a bunch of red blocks scrolling past you and you have to tap on them as they go to improve your score. However, there's always a catch. If you fail to hit them fast enough then it's game over. The better you get at it, the more backgrounds you will unlock. It's simple. It's endless. It's strangely enjoyable.

TapBlock is one of those games that is very easy to play yet tough to master as one mistake will send you back to the start. However, if you're anything like me you'll get into this weird hypnotic rhythm after a while and, hopefully, you'll see your high score going up and up and new cool background pictures emerging along the way as you get better at the game and as you move into a zen-like state. 

This is a game that you can play anytime and anywhere. You can play it for ten minutes on the bus or for several hours when you get home at night when there's not much to see on the idiot box. You can even play it while you eat dinner as it only requires one finger and your brain. So, do your best, unlock those cool backgrounds and move up the tier by raising your high score each time you play. Oh and one more thing...if you're an ambitious individual looking for the ultimate challenge, see if you can find the hidden Easter Eggs while you play. TapBlock original is available now for free for iPhone, iPad and Android in the relevant app store.
