When you are surrounded by blocks, we must find a way. For this, you can push the blocks.
However, the games where you push blocks are not limited to that. These are often puzzles in which we use the blocks to build bridges, walls, to fill holes or to hide traps.
There are also games where you simply take the blocks in a given location.
In A Maze Yin, for example, you must ensure that your hero reaches the exit in each level by pushing boxes that blocks him or stands in the way.
If you push a block into a corner, you're stuck and you will have to start again!
