Give enemies in your game Brains!
Are you ready to make your game's enemies a whole lot more interesting? Brain Board is a brand new feature in Bloxels that gives creators the ability to give the enemies in their games "Brains"! Use your Bloxels Gameboard to make your enemies faster, stronger, bigger and more. Each color you place on the gameboard when adding a brain affects a different attribute of your enemy – mix and match to see what happens!
Check out a few of these awesome Brain Boards in action.
Build Your Brain on the Gameboard
Add an array of colors on the gameboard to dictate how you want your enemy to behave. Want him to be stronger? Add a bunch of red blocks. Want him to give up some coins when you blast him? Add some yellow blocks to the mix. Experiment to make a variety of different enemies.
In the configure menu of the enemy you want to add a brain to click the camera button to capture your Gameboard. This will add it to the enemy. Tap the Brain Stats icon to see how your brain measures up!
Follow this step by step process to add brains to your enemies. Don't be afraid to experiment, and keep scrolling to see the color key.

Blue = Size
Change the size of your enemy by adding blue blocks to the Gameboard. Make it HUGE!
- Each blue block will make the enemy a little bit bigger... Up to 3x normal size at 26 blocks!
Yellow = Bonus
Add more yellow blocks to the Gameboard so that the enemies give up some coins or hearts after they're defeated.
- One coin granted for each yellow block!
- 10+: Along with coins, a Health bonus of 1HP, plus one more for each additional block!
Red = Damage
Use red blocks in your brain to make your enemy pack more of a punch.
- Enemy deals an extra 1HP for every two red blocks!
- 0: Enemy deals the usual 1HP per hit.
- 10+: Explode when defeated... Stay away! (Tip: Two or more explosive enemies near each other causes a chain reaction!)
Green = Greed
Load the Gameboard up with green blocks and the enemy will take your hero's coins. How greedy do you want these bad guys to be?
- Enemy takes one coin for each green block. :(
- 10+: Each time the enemy hits you, it will steal each heart that you lost and re-energize!
Pink = Strength
Use pink blocks on your Brain Board to make your enemy take more damage to defeat!
- Enemy has an extra 1HP for every two pink blocks.
- 0: Enemy can be defeated in one hit!
- 4: Enemy has the usual 3HP.
- 20+: Your projectiles bounce off the enemy! Use bombs!
Orange = Speed
Want your enemies to be fast? Load the Gameboard up with some orange blocks. Want them to be slow? Like, really slow? Leave those orange blocks off. Turret enemies can’t move, but adding orange blocks will speed up their projectiles!
Patrollers and Flyers

Single shots? Spread shot? Lasers? HEAT SEEKING LASERS?!?! You decide what your enemies will shoot by adding different numbers of purple blocks to your Gameboard.
- 0: No projectile for Patrollers and Flyers. For Turrets, the usual firing rate.
- 1-5: Increased firing rate! (Tip: Turret's rate will be a bit higher than if it was a Patroller/Flyer with the same number of blocks!)
- 6-10: Spreadshot! More blocks means more projectiles in the spread.
- 11, 12, 13, 14: Lasers! Fixed directions; right, up, left, and down.
- 15, 16, 17, 18: More lasers! Fixed directions; up-right, up-left, down-left, and down-right.
