How to Beat Stage 7 in Bloxorz

by George Lawrence J.D. ; Updated September 22, 2017

Bloxorz is a deceptively simple puzzle game whereby the player must roll a rectangular block into a goal-hole on the level map. The block can lay horizontally and roll or stand vertically and travel end-over-end. Players move the block by using the arrow keys. In level 7, players must navigate narrow bridges and platforms to reach the goal.

Press down then roll left once and press up so that your block is aligned with the narrow strip of squares to the top of the “X” on the far side of the screen. Move right end-over-end five times. Roll down and press the right arrow key to place the block on the “X.” A platform will raise in the bottom left corner.

Reverse your actions so your block is resting horizontally on the last two squares on the platform at the left side of the screen. Roll to the right once and press down to cause your block to stand vertically. Your block should be standing up directly across from the newly-raised platform.

Press right to rest your block horizontally on the newly-raised platform; roll down. Your block should now be on the narrow strip of squares under the “X” on the level map.

Press up and move your block to the right end-over-end twice. Move end-over-end once towards the top of the screen. Fall down onto the “X.”

Roll down once and press the right arrow key to stand your block vertically. Press the up arrow to lay your block horizontally and roll once to the right of the screen. Your block should be resting horizontally next to the “X.”

Press up to stand your block vertically and move end-over-end twice. Roll the block to the right of the screen so it is resting on the final two squares. Press down to stand your block vertically.

Press right to cause your block to rest horizontally. Roll your block down once. Your block should be on the goal, but it needs to be vertical to fit. Press the right key to stand your block vertically and press down to lay it horizontally on the last two squares of the platform on right side of the screen.

Roll once to the left. Press up to cause your block to fall into the goal.
