Taking a Puzzling Journey with “Block Legend DX”

A good friend of mine randomly gave me a copy of Block Legend DX for the PC a little while back and given the other stuff I’ve had going on lately it took me a while to get around to firing it up. However, the art style looked pixelated and cute and
