I’ve Got 99 Problems But a Brick Ain’t One


Okay, so I guess the bricks actually are a problem in 99 Bricks: Wizard Academy, a whimsical physics puzzler, first released a couple months ago on Android and iOS, that developer WeirdBeard Games has confirmed is now coming to PlayStation Vita.


99 Bricks is like Tetris in reverse. Instead of stacking tetromino blocks to clear lines and prevent the screen from filling up, the objective is to pile on the bricks to create a towering skyscraper of building blocks without it toppling over. On mobile the game is played from a vertical orientation. For Vita the gameplay and interface is being tweaked so that the game “plays just as well or even better” from the widescreen view. Should be fun!


A few screenshots have been released showing what the game looks like on Vita, but for additional reference I’ve embedded the trailer from the mobile version so you can at least see how the gameplay works in motion.
