  1. An intriguing game, but one that may not hold your interest for that long.
  2. The central 2D shooter is not very good, but creating your own game to replace it is much more rewarding.
  3. People that love to share content and being part of a brilliant and growingly creative community should not miss this game.

    There are just too many of the simple things wrong, and too many areas where you feel that corners have been cut rather than obsessed over. [Sept 2008, p.88]

    Great toy, great community, but not a great game. [Sept 2008, p.122]

    This game is a lie. This game made it sound that the game was top-notch when it was actually pretty bad.

    The game looked like one of those cheap flash games on computers and even those are better than this.

    Blast Works is a very ambitious game. Based off of a japanese flash game, you play a ship which can collect the pieces of destroyed enemyBlast Works is a very ambitious game. Based off of a japanese flash game, you play a ship which can collect the pieces of destroyed enemy ships to make it stronger. To me, this game is absolutely average: the offensive pieces can be tough to catch properly, sometimes putting your little ship in danger while you try and get them in the perfect position. After awhile, you just straight-up can't see the screen due to the pieces of your uber-ship. The bosses absolutely spam bullets, making them next to impossible to beat, even with your uber-ship. This game draws you in for 10 minutes, then you put it away and never play it again. Not even the unlockables can get me in the mood to beat the game. It is perhaps the most "average" game i've ever played, with an admittedly really cool idea. Don't let that sucker you into buying this game, it isn't worth it. Full Review »
