The contribution of Don Nguyen to video games for smartphones doesn't end with Flappy Bird. Shuriken Block is another example of a simple yet addictive game. It comes along with exactly the same features, in other words, retro graphics and simplicity.
Save the samurais from the shower of shurikens
In Shuriken Block we'll find a group of samurais standing still in front of us, and we have to save them from the danger. This danger is none the other than the shurikens that fall from the sky and that we have to stop by simply tapping the screen. The more accurate we are tapping the shurikens, the higher our score will be, but we have to take into account that the more we manage to stop, the faster and more often they'll fall.
Protect these samurais that are incapable of getting out of the way.
A game that proves that you don't need a confusing plot to succeed
The simplicity of the games created by the Don Nguyen, signed as .GEARS Studios, is one of the keys to their great success. The abovementioned Flappy Bird or Super Ball Juggling are examples of the latter, and Shuriken Block is a serious candidate to become the next big thing in terms of smartphone video games.
