Wood Block Puzzle is a plain block puzzle game similar to the classic 1984 Tetris video game in which a player rearranges and clears seven unique styles of block tiles called tetrominoes from a play field. Both games were inspired by 20th century children's tiling puzzle games called Pentimono played with 12 block tiles known as pentominoes.
In Wood Block Puzzle, a player creates horizontal and vertical lines on a brown grid using different shaped tiles made of wood block cells. The goal is to earn as many points and coins as possible by positioning and clearing the blocks from the board. Above the play area, they can review number of coins they collect and their points per game and all-time points score. They can also use their earned coins to pay for additional moves when they run out and pause the game.
With additional moves, a player can change available tiles below the board to different shapes or clear one block cell on the grid, tiles based on type or an entire area. Unlike many block puzzle games, Wood Block Puzzle doesn't penalize a player for starting over or time the play, which means they can spend a lot of time strategically considering each move. Tiles also don't drop toward the bottom of the board as lines disappear from the grid.
