Th!nk Cross is a Puzznic variant. In each of the 150 levels, there are a number of blocks with varying symbols or numbers on them. The player can move each block left or right and when two or more identical blocks are brought together, they vanish. The goal is to eliminate all stones within a time limit.
The levels are shown from the side with applied physics, i.e. blocks fall down if pushed from a ledge. There are also various special level elements, e.g. conveyor belts, elevators or weak structure elements which can only bear one block. Passwords are rewarded all five levels and a "help" function can be used twice per level. It brings the level back to point zero without a game over, which is useful when the player navigated into an unwinnable situation. After earning a certain amount of points, the player receives a bomb which can be used to kill off a block of choice.
Th!nk Cross is a decent Tetris clone with a twist. Instead of moving falling blocks in an empty play area, your goal is to match blocks of various colors and shapes by moving them horizontally and vertically. The trick here is that the blocks obey laws of physics: they always fall downward once you move them off a ledge, so this means that a block that is trapped between two blocks cannot be moved until either of its neighbors is moved, and blocks can get "stuck" in a corner. This means that you must carefully plan the order of blocks to move, similar to Sokoban. Higher levels have more blocks to move, and the number requirements also increase, e.g. you must move three or four blocks together before they all disappear, instead of just two. Overall, a nice puzzle game that Tetris fans should enjoy, although the game's variation from the norm is very slight, and level design is not as ingenious as Sokoban.
