Joinz is an intriguing puzzler that mixes together elements from other classic games to create something pretty interesting.

It's out right now on the App Store if you fancy giving it a go.

It's been put together by Noodlecake Games, and sees you sliding blocks around a grid.

You need to squish these blocks together to make tetrominoe-style shapes.

As you play the game throws new colours into the mix. You can only match blocks of the same hue, so there's a lot of juggling to get things into the right place.

Power-ups are dropped when you've made enough matches. These let you blow things up from a variety of different angles.

It's a pretty slow-paced experience, but there's a methodical compulsion to Joinz all the same.

It's not super difficult to begin with, but once you start being asked to make more complex shapes, it can get pretty tough.

If any of that sounds like it might make you smile for a spell you can grab Joinz from the App Store right now for £1.49 / $1.99. There are no IAPs or ads to annoy you either.
