Blocktrix – Keep it alive.

December 2, 2016

In late 2016 it seems that the website for blocktrix.org has gone down and probably wont be coming back up any time soon. In an attempt to keep this great game alive I have started hosting a public server. Along with the public server I also have the Windows download for the Blocktrix v1.0.

If you download the Blocktrix game and try to run it most modern antivirus software will flag the EXE as a virus, it is not I can assure you of this. The software has been flagged as a virus since its initial release.

You can download Blocktrix for Windows here.
