When I first played Boom Blocks I didn't think it would be that impressive and my friends held the same opinion. We all thought this was just another shovel-ware title. After trying it out, however, we all found Boom Blocks to be remarkably entertaining. It may be a silly little puzzle game, but it is a great gaming experience nonetheless.
This game is fun, funny, challenging and can truly be played by all ages. A six-year-old has the same chance to beat an adult as the adult has to beat the child. Picture dozens of different Jenga configurations, some with glass blocks mixed in and some with exploding blocks. You take turns throwing baseballs, softballs and even bowling balls at the towers to try to break them apart and eventually bring them down. There is as much strategy as skill and every game is different. In one player mode, you try to bring the towers down with the fewest throws. I highly recommend this one.
I have a 7 year old son and we enjoyed playing this game, just really wished there were more levels. It's easy enough that he can play it pretty well but challenging enough to keep the adults in the house interested! :)
