Blek is a unique game about imagination and personality. Everything you draw keeps moving – and watching your creations move is like watching magic.
The goal is simple: shape a line that collects all colored circles avoiding black holes on its route. There are no specific moves that you need to master. To every level countless solutions exist, from delightfully simple to exceptionally deep and complex, yet always elegant.

If you can doodle, you can play this one-of-a-kind Apple Design Award winner. Just draw a line—any line—and watch it spring to life across the screen, following your gestures to collect colored dots and avoid black holes. But as the holes form increasingly elaborate obstacles, only the most ingenious doodles will do. With endless solutions to every challenge, it’s a stylish, supremely satisfying test of your creativity and puzzle-solving prowess.
Bought just to hear the sound when you hit the black dots.
After reading several reviews about the sound when you hit the black dots, for $0.99 I had to hear it for myself (and I’ve grown to like drawing games).
This is a unique game from other similar games. You don’t draw a line to connect the dots and the lines don’t model physics and fall like they do in other drawing games, rather, they repeat. It creates a pattern. If you draw a squiggle then your squiggle will repeat the same motion AND the same angle. It bounces only if you “bounce” it when you are drawing. If you draw a straight line it moves in the direction like a worm until you hit all the colored circles or until it goes off screen or... hits the black dots. It’s unique and challenging but also relaxing fun.
So, what IS this awful sound that everyone complains about? Admittedly, I turned the sound down too but I don’t find it as off-putting as some. I think it’s the uncanny-valley style weirdness that makes it so disconcerting more than the sound itself. It sounds like several sounds mixed and it changes. There is a small “plink” sound in one with a light negative tone chime in another and similar sounds in others. The part that makes it “annoying” though is the overlay (I suppose that’s what you would call it?) of a female-sounding voice saying “ooh” or what sounds like “ay-oh” Or “ohhh” - but each sound is mixed with something so it’s hard to say exactly what it really sounds like.
Great game but hard
If you’re like me, spacial awareness is your dump stat and this game will be super challenging. But that’s why I like it! It’s so satisfying to clear a challenge. Sometimes I open the app just to play with the physics and sound effects.
It can be a tad frustrating when I’m not in the right mood but mostly it’s a great brain teaser
I highly recommend giving it a go
