Blockout is a mini game found exclusively in Ortego Village. It is accessed from an NPC [Clarify] in the shop with a sign and silhouette in the shape of one MP.[Clarify] The prize for clearing it is a Life Shard.[Clarify]

How to play[]

  • The player must make the ball destroy all the blocks in Blockout by launching it with R1, then, using the shield or sword, deflect it towards the blocks when it comes back.
  • The player loses a ball if there are no balls in play (all destroyed), and the ball is destroyed if it hits the body of the player character (bounces off shield) or the bottom wall of the area.
  • The ball speeds up if hit by the sword. There are also chests to destroy. Destroying a chest causes an apple to appear and move towards the bottom of the screen.
  • Red apples, when collected, cause the ball to duplicate into many balls, all of which begin heading towards the back of the area.
  • Green apples, when collected, change the color of the ball and make it pass through and completely destroy all blocks it hits. The apples can both be in effect simultaneously, and multiple red apples may work together.
  • The player does not lose if a ball is destroyed if there are more balls in play. 
  • The sword used is the equipped sword, and any can be used, but it will be the size it is when the wielder's LIFE is not at the maximum and no MAX power up is in effect.


  • The accompanying music track is best known as the theme that closes out the videos of YouTuber Scott Wozniak, known on YouTube as Scott the Woz.
