How to Play:

The gameplay is simple.
- Move the falling blocks into the best position to combine blocks and clear rows.
- Place 2 blocks of the same color on top of each other to combine them into a single block of a darker color.
- Create a row of blocks with the same color to clear the row.
- Don't let your stack of blocks hit the top.

Super simple, surprisingly challenging.
