Tetris has been taken to a third dimension! Blockout is harder to play, because you have to worry about more things. There are three ways to rotate the blocks, and you also have to make sure you are placing them in the right section. The blocks are see through except the edges while they are in play, and take on a solid color when they are set down. Each layer has a different color.

There are three types of games: Flat Fun, 3-D Mania, and Out of Control. The differences between them are the dimensions of the playing area. There are 9 levels for each of these types. You can also edit the block set between flat, basic, and extended.

To control the blocks, a variety of keys are used. Blockout lets you rotate the blocks in three ways. Press A and Q to rotate about the X axis. Press S and W to rotate about the Y axis. Finally, press D and E to rotate about the Z axis.
