StarBlox Inc. for the Nintendo Switch is what happens when a brawler and a puzzler intersect. Even if it's not the most gorgeous game ever made, this effort can provide some unmistakably fun hours, especially on multiplayer, as the puzzle-based combats advance and the variety of game modes allow for different variations of the experience.

Minor shortcomings do not hinder StarBlox Inc. At its core, the game is an absolute delight.
StarBlox Inc. is a fun and unique little experiment of a game, let down only by the results of that experiment that don't quite come together. At the same time. the sheer satisfaction that comes from victory helps overcome some of the fundamental flaws in the concept and the net result is an original, if convoluted, puzzle-fighter. Ultimately, this is a still an enjoyable title that gets a qualified recommendation.
StarBlox Inc. is a perfectly enjoyable action puzzler that manages to balance reflex-based gameplay with on-the-fly puzzle solving. The core gameplay loop doesn't have much in the way of depth, but it's easy to pick up, and fun to play, especially in groups of four. Unfortunately, no online means that StarBlox has no real shelf life in spite of a surprisingly decent single player campaign. If nothing else, this makes for a decent couch multiplayer alternative to Puyo Puyo and Tetris.
The game's tutorial drags and for gaming novices, the mechanics and strategy will really not come naturally. There are many little things that you need to keep in mind to give you the edge in battle. Once you get the hang of the proceedings, though, it can become a highly competitive experience with each side fighting for total domination. The battle and puzzle combo is quite an adorable one that runs quite well on Nintendo Switch.
If you want a highly competitive game that'll keep you and your friends on the edge of your seats then you should play StarBlox Inc.
