I am thankful Family Friendly Gaming was provided a download code for
Tumblestone on the Xbox One. This puzzle game comes with a bit of a
twist. Families must select three blocks of the same color until they
remove all of the blocks from their screen. Sounds simple. Problem is
the blocks must be removed in just the right order or you will only have
two of a certain kind available. Tumblestone lets you restart and try
and figure out where you went off the one path it allows.
The music in Tumblestone is soothing, and relaxing. I found myself trying to go to sleep while playing Tumblestone. If you are an insomniac then you should try playing Tumblestone. I guarantee it can put you to sleep. The levels where the tiles are marching down toward the bottom of the screen are the one except to that dozing rule. Others watching and listening to Tumblestone had the same reaction.
There are no physical copies of Tumblestone that I am aware of. That is a big bummer in my book. Tumblestone clocked in over eight hundred megs. If you have an economy Internet plan you might not be able to download it. Which is a real shame there is not some indie program for physical copies of video games. I hope the video game industry can mature and progress to that one day soon.
There are a variety of colors used in Tumblestone. Some of the faces on the blocks are unseemly. Tumblestone can lead to real world frustration and real world anger. Especially when the player is having problems finding the one path to complete the screen. There is an item in Tumblestone that allows families to skip levels. They are provided at a very sparse interval.
I found myself plotting my course while playing Tumblestone Which did not always work right. So I had to wing it a few times to see how certain changes modified the screen. I wish there was a reverse step in Tumblestone. Having to restart long screens did get a bit old, especially when I forgot what worked early on. Tumblestone will tax your brain. The storyline attempts to joke about things. It did not appeal to me.
