Super Puzzle Platformer Deluxe (SPPD) is one of the best examples I can give of gameplay distilled to its purest form.
Blocks fall from the top of the screen (ala Tetris) and players destroy them in groups to earn points and Block Bits. Catching enough Block Bits gives you the chance to grab giant jewels (unlocking new levels) or invincibility-granting stars.
As you survive waves of falling blocks and various hazards, you’ll “Level Up.” This grants you more power and high-score opportunities, but also increases the speed and overall difficulty of the game.

A steep learning curve eventually leads the player from frustration to an incredible sense of reward.
Super Puzzle Platformer Deluxe has many secrets to reveal including 8 additional unlockable characters and 18 hardcore puzzle-platforming challenges.
