Blocks: The Devilish Delivery Game is a casual puzzle game that was released by Darkwind Media January 29, 2011 for 240 Microsoft Points. The object of the game is to deliver a box to the floating island. It sounds easy enough, but the delivery platform can only fire rockets on one side of the platform at a time. Also, players must beat the clock to get it there through a maze of twists and turns.
The control scheme for the game is simple, right trigger or bumper controls the right side rockets, and the left trigger of bumper controls the left side rockets. As stated players can only fire one set of rockets at a time. The whole idea is to move the platform with the box to the island and keep things as balanced as possible.
