B lock H eroes

Block Heroes is a blocky physics sandbox that for some reason has seen some popularity in Russia. The developer (me) has essentially abandoned it for some time now. I'm simply not ready to commit to a multi-year project while holding down a full-time job. It's a fun game though. There's a ton of contraptions you can make.
