Cyberpunk 2077’s launch and subsequent reviews was not the reception anyone expected, especially for a game that has been in the oven for more than eight years at the time of its release. Considering how unfortunate the circumstances have become for developer CD Projekt Red’s (CDPR) game, add Block Strike – a mobile game – to those who are paying homage to the embattled title.
By now, Cyberpunk 2077 is one of most recognizable games in recent history, and not for good reasons. While the game performs well on PC, base console players were left with a broken shell of a game which should not have been released. After years of teasing the game and claiming it will release “when it’s ready,” CDPR, ironically, did not release the game when it was ready, thus leading to extremely contrasting opinions of the game.
As a result, though the game broke sales records prior to launch, Cyberpunk 2077 has lost most of its players on Steam, caused CDPR to have emergency meetings in order to address the disastrous rollout and performance of the game, and ultimately caused CDPR to offer refunds along with various apologies to fans.
(Note: after seeing how far CDPR went to hide Cyberpunk 2077’s performance on base consoles, suffice to say, I was frustrated.)
That said, not all is bad regarding Cyberpunk 2077. PC players are still enjoying the game and have been finding some Easter Eggs in the vast world CDPR created. Not only can Easter Eggs about Cyberpunk 2077 be found in the game, but in other games as well.
Enter Block Strike.
Block Strike is a mobile game developed by Rexet Studio and is available for free on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store. Originally released in 2015, I will admit that I have never heard of the game, which mainly stems from the fact that I am not a mobile gamer whatsoever — the only mobile game I spent considerable time playing was Runescape.
Nevertheless, when I saw on YouTube that there was an Easter Egg dedicated to Cyberpunk 2077 on this mobile title, I had to check it out for myself. If you want to see the Easter Egg for yourself, you can read the directions below or just scroll to the end.
On the map “Nauts,” right in front of you are boxes that create an “L” shape. Once you jump on top of the tallest box, run and jump into the corner. If done correctly, you should warp inside the wall and be greeted by the scene below:
Once inside, you’ll see a character spazzing out of the right side and pieces of furniture in one another glitching out as well. Although it’s unfortunate that CDPR is going through a rough time, at least the Easter Eggs and secrets other developers are putting in their games are funny.
All things considered, laughing at how incredibly botched Cyberpunk 2077 really is the best way to forget that CDPR knowingly sold base console players a broken mess. Now that it’s happened, the best thing to do now is just laugh about it and hope the embattled title can be a semblance of the title promised eight years ago.
