    Blast Off is yet another game from Halfbrick that shows that PSP Minis can be cheap and be just as entertaining and well done as games that cost thrice as much.
  2. Blast Off is the best PSP Mini to hit the PSN so far. Though it may not have much in terms of depth, the challenge offered is tremendously addictive. Blast Off is a shining example of what all Minis and gaming-Apps should strive for.

    Blast Off nails what a Mini should be in my opinion. The gameplay is simple, there's a lot to do, you can jump in and out with ease, and the price is perfect. I can totally see myself whipping Blast Off out when I'm waiting for a conference call to begin or when I'm waiting on my ride home.

    It can become quite the addiction.
  5. Blast Off is a super approachable, crazily addictive little game. Well, it's not little, as it's going on 50 playable levels. But the file size is nice and small, and so is the price ($2.99).
  6. Blast Off is a fun and unique title which offers a great challenge.

    A fun title. [Issue#188, p.87]
  8. Due to the fact that you are always on the run for the high score, this game entertains for hours, even if it is quite difficult and doesn’t use bonus items you could earn.
  9. This is an addictive action/puzzle game that requires skill, patience and maybe even a little luck. It provides hours of fun for next to nothing and is easily the best PSP game I've played in months!
  10. Blast Off, then, plays on your desire to better yourself.
  11. Blast Off isn’t a fully-fledged game, but it never aimed to be one in the first place – it is mini, after all. Small, cute, cheap, addictive, and great fun. At this kind of price tag, deprive yourself of your portion of fries at McDonalds this week and Blast Off into the unknown instead.

    This is the first PSP mini that I've bought after reading the IGN recommendation... I'm glad I did! It's a perfect mini game to play whilst commuting on transport or when theres just nothing on TV. And at only $3 it's a friggin bargain! I hope more developers bring out minis as good as BlastOff.

    I bought this game last week and I love it! It's one of those games that is easy to pick up but fiendishly difficult to master. Addictive and immensley enjoyable, highly recommended gaming goodness :-) Full Review »
