    Bombastic 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!

    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.

  1. It's surprisingly addictive and really does make math fun. No, really! [Oct 2003, p.77]
  2. While the addictive qualities are still intact, the addition of explosives has slightly upset the delicate balance. Big combos here tend to owe as much to good fortune as they do to prudence and it can feel like you're over-working your brain for too little result. [Christmas 2003, p.124]
  3. The Quest mode is too loose and culminates in boss battles that do away with the puzzle element completely, in favour of random dice turning. The result is a game that's great with some friends, but fails to ignite when played alone.
