  1. If you're pining for something with charm, accessibility, instant playability, hidden depths, and above all else fun, then for twenty quid you can't go far wrong with Bombastic. Sure, it's the kind of game that could've been made ten years ago, and is as basic as games get these days, but that's exactly what appealed to us.

    For anybody with even a minor bit of gaming background, this is a highly addictive, incredibly brilliant puzzler that has enough depth, ingenuity and depth to keep you going for months.

    If twisting your mind into knots sounds like fun, you'll love Bombastic. [Oct 2003, p.40]

    It's surprisingly addictive and really does make math fun. No, really! [Oct 2003, p.77]
  5. Bombastic blows away all other Playstation 2 puzzlers.
  6. It’s very challenging, and the completion is rewarding.

    It's a great puzzler. Definitely a little weird, but most certainly good. [Sept 2003, p.109]

    What initially seemed overly mathematical and number-crunchingly complex has now taken over my psyche. When I close my eyes I see pulsating dice in fabulous combinations. [Sept 2003, p.113]

    Destined to become a cult favorite, which will most likely sell for a billion dollars on eBay one day, Bombastic is a puzzle gamers dream come true.

    Once you begin figuring out the combo system and how to manipulate the dice, Bombastic becomes oddly addictive. [Sept 2003, p.54]

    Bombastic is a very clever puzzle game. You have to run/roll around a die to create explosions(like Bomberman) and score points. Along withBombastic is a very clever puzzle game. You have to run/roll around a die to create explosions(like Bomberman) and score points. Along with your usual high scores and multiplayer, the game has a quest mode. It's fairly short, but challenging and worth a try. The graphics could be better, and the game length could be longer. Regardless, it makes rolling around a die more fun than ever! Full Review »

    An excellent action puzzle for almost anyone! Only a few minor things annoy me a little, but otherwise it's perfect. The music is An excellent action puzzle for almost anyone! Only a few minor things annoy me a little, but otherwise it's perfect. The music is repetitive at moments, 5 player war is way too chaotic and getting good scores feels sometimes too random as it is pretty difficult to work systematically. It has better playability and response than in its prequel, Devil Dice on PSX. Full Review »
