Bombastic (2003)
Developer: Sony Computer Entertainment, Inc.
Platform: PlayStation 2
Purchase Date: 09/03/2003

The battle mode feels like the more intellectual version of Bomberman.

Bombastic is a highly intelligent puzzle game where you match the top face of the dice with other die on the board to make them explode. It takes a bit of brain power because you have to actually move them across the board using a cute devilish character that rotates the dice one face at a time. A keen understanding of the relationship between the dice movement and what's going to show up on top of it is required. Since the game is fast-paced, the constant stimulation of thought process is truly not something that is appealing to everyone. Add the explosive chain reaction gameplay into the mix and you have yourself a deceptively simple game with a highly complex interior mechanics. A great franchise that is just waiting to flourish with online multiplayer.

LIBRARY STATUS: 4 out of 5
