Jelly Blocks - Squishy Match-3 Game

Try the browser based demo. No Unity3D plugin required.

Jelly blocks is a squishy match-3 game you create matches by bouncing and smooshing blocks together. The bouncy soft pieces pile up, creating a unique play field that you stack your pieces on.  Think of it as squishy Tetris.

The game has a chill paced zen-mode that goes infinitely long as long as you don't fill the board too full.  The other mode, challenge mode, starts going faster as you match pieces and has a timer you have to constantly increase by matching pieces.

Controls:

Gamepad:

  • Left thumb stick: move pieces around
  • Right thumb stick: rotate pieces
  • A: create a new game piece right now, if able

Keyboard:

  • W, A, S, D: Move game piece
  • Left,Right and Q, E: Rotate game piece
  • Space: create a new game piece right now, if able
