In Blocks3D, the player is challenged to arrange falling pieces in a 3D grid environment to complete planes which will fade away and generate score. To control the piece, the player can move it by sliding in bars at the corners of the game area, the piece rotation can be done by sliding in the game area, or - to rotate orthogonal to the camera, it's possible to use the multi-touch rotation gesture. The game allow six types of rotations (each rotation axis, in both directions).
To assist the player in the task of arranging the pieces, the piece is draw with transparency and projections are drawn in each side of the grid. A shadow of the current piece is also drawn where it will fall.
