About the Game

The world's smallest city builder. The Block is a bite sized experience for city builder fans short on time / money / attention / all of the above. Each level is slightly different and can be completed in a matter of minutes.

Much like the last project from Paul Schnepf (The Ramp), The Block is designed more as a ‘digital toy’ than a game: a short, satisfying experience that’ll make your day a little bit better and costs less than a slice of pizza.

Game features:

  • Chose: Try out a variety of colour palettes and map sizes!
  • Create: Build up a tiny but perfectly formed city block from randomly generated tiles!
  • Enjoy: Sit back, relax, and take in the glory of your adorable creation!
