Mental Blocks consists of three games:
Free Fall, or Fits and Pieces, is a 3D version of Tetris. Instead of forming a line, you must form a complete layer before it will disappear.
The California Achievement Cubes, or Mental Detector, shows you a cube, and challenges you to figure out which of the four unfolded cubes matches the cube. The single-player version has a timer, while the two player version has you pick the proper cube first.
What's Next, Pussycat?, or Shapes Happen, shows you three shapes, and asks you to pick the next shape in the series from a set of four choices. Again, you either face the timer or your friend.
Mental Blocks is essentially Tetris in 3D, similar to a better-known and superior game called Blockout. This is one of the rarest Accolade games, because the company was sued and later forced to pull the game from the market in a matter of months (probably due to too much similarities with Welltris, Spectrum Holobyte's 3D follow-up to Tetris that was being released around the same time). Its unfortunate fate in the courtroom notwithstanding, Mental Blocks is a lot of fun and quite addictive, although the graphics are inferior to, and gameplay is not as smooth as, California Dreams' Blockout. Worth a look if you like Tetris clones, however. The game even has a decent AI that plays a pretty good game of Tetris all by itself in demo mode.
