It's not too often we get to see a completely new PSP homebrew game break onto the scene these days, but thankfully right now is one of those rare times. While it may not be the deepest or most unique gaming experience out there, a developer by the name of RYP has just released his own coded puzzle game called OpenBricks. Sure, bricks may not be the most exciting thing to talk about when it comes to the handheld scene, but the game's developer is hoping you'll be able to look past that connotation and pay attention to their colored blocks in a new context.
Taking off on the immensely successful game known as Tetris, this game certainly doesn't leave too much to be desired if you're looking for the kind of gameplay experience you haven't seen before. The object of the title is simple. As the colored blocks fall down from the top of the screen, it is your job as the puzzle architect to make sure your stack of pieces never hits the top of the screen. The more blocks you are able to stack, the higher the score will get; and additionally blocks will break down if they are fitted tightly together.
I know you've probably all played a game like this one before, but why not explain it for those that haven't? PSP Tetris ports have existed ever since this little thing we call a scene first began about seven years ago. Still it feels nice to welcome a new title to the tribe every once and a while right? If you're looking for a new block-stack game for your fix, look no further than OpenBricks.
