Collapsus is an exciting new block crunching puzzle game unlike any other! Collapsus is NOT about "swapping" blocks. Instead, you click on blocks to permanently break them in order to make lines 4 or more blocks. Be careful: the block meter at the bottom starts to go down with every break, and when it's all gone; it's GAME OVER! By making these lines of blocks, you get some of those "breaks" back... it's a unique risk-reward resource management mechanic! You can also TURN the screen in any of the four directions to change how the blocks fall, opening up a whole new world of possibilities!
Originally created as a prototype way back in 2005, lead designer, Jay Kidd, created an all new puzzle game for his mother. Although it didn't really go anywhere, in 2011, when thinking of new game ideas, his fiancee (and Wraith Games programmer), Kristy Iwema, decided they should revive the game.
Collapsus is inspired by classic puzzles games such as Tetris, Bejeweled, and Puzzle League. The movement of the blocks and rotation of the screen are inspired by the movement of a Rubik's Cube. The bright, colorful, flat design is taken directly from classic pop art!
