Rubik's cube meets Tetris

Critical Mass is a typical indie game. It cannot win your love with its graphics, but can steal a lot of time with its great puzzles. It feels much as if it was heavily inspired by the Rubik's cube toy, and the idea is similar - you move the blocks of a colored mass of blocks to link them into chains of the same color. Matched blocks of the same color disappear, and removing them all is your goal. In the meantime the mass grows and gets closer to the front, and imaginary touching the screen signals your defeat. So you need to remove blocks not only to win but also to delay your failure. It's easy to learn and is almost as addictive as good old Tetris.
