BlockOut II – a free adaptation of the original BlockOut® DOS game edited by California Dreams in 1989. BlockOut is a falling-blocks game, similar to Tetris, but in 3 dimensions. Playing BlockOut can help to train 3d visual thinking, especially your mental rotation skills.
BlockOut® II has the same features than the original game with few graphic improvements. The game has been designed to reproduce the original game kinematics as accurately as possible. The score calculation is also nearly similar to the original.
BlockOut® II also features an online score database where you can upload your high-scores with their replays and get various statistics. The score registering system also includes an efficient fake score detection.
BlockOut® II has been designed by an addicted player for addicted players. It is an open source project (GPL) available for both Windows and Linux.
