Klocki, HOOK, and Push all played with their familiar genre elements to deliver uniquely minimalist puzzlers with clever mechanics and the new Up Left Out does the same for block sliding puzzle games.
Each of Up Left Out’s 50 stages is a collection of blocks, most marked with lines to connect like circuits rather than matching colors or more traditional objectives. Those blocks are often linked to pegs, forcing you to not just slide blocks around the stage but first figure out to how to free blocks from their pegs. This additional challenge introducing a challenging extra step to Up Left Out’s colorful puzzles.
Soon, you’re also dealing with buttons that activate barriers or flip blocks around, injecting more complexity into the already tricky stages.
