Blek is a really interesting puzzle game developed by Kunabi Brother. Everything about the game is really unique, from looks to gameplay experience, and it really stands out from the competion.
The gameplay experience is really simple but also incredibly engaging. Players will have to collect colored dots scattered on the screen while avoiding obstacles. Things start pretty easy but soon become way more complicated, requiring gamers to draw some really unique shapes in order to complete a stage.
If your drawing skills are not up to the task and you need some help on how to play the game, you have come to the right place. These tips and tricks will help you in the game and make you enjoy it way more than before.
The best way to get comfortable with drawing in Blek is practicing as much as possible. Later stages don’t offer much space to do it so use the first few stages, which include a lot of free space, to practice your drawing and create some complex shapes that will definitely come in handy later on.
There will be times when you may end up going past the colored dots for different reasons. In these cases, it’s always better to do it horizontally, as the right and left sides of the screens act as walls that bounce the line back. Missing the dots vertically will eventually make your line disappear, forcing you to star everything from the beginning. The bouncing can also be used in later stages to reach come hard to get dots.
The first stages of Blek are so easy that you won’t need any sort of complicated shape to complete. This is actually a problem later on, as you will need to draw complicated shapes to complete each stage. While most gamers will rely on arched shapes or straight lines, the game actually requires you to do more complex shapes that actually combine straight and arched lines. Experimentation is the key in Blek so don’t be afraid to try out different things.
Drawing lines isn’t the only way to reach the dots and complete stages. Drawing perfect and complete circles quickly will allow you to create portals, which allow your line to move from one portal to the next. Portals are in no way required to clear most stages, they simply are another option that expands the gameplay experience even more.
