Boom Blox Bash Party is a physics-based puzzle video game developed by EA Los Angeles and published by Electronic Arts for the Wii video game console. It is a sequel to Boom Blox, and was released in May 19, 2009 in North America and in Europe on May 29, 2009. The game features more than 400 new levels, and players are able to download new levels and upload their own custom-created levels to share online. Its development began after the completion of its predecessor, and it was formally announced on January 28, 2009. As with the original game, this sequel was also designed by film director Steven Spielberg.

The gameplay of Boom Blox Bash Party resembles the original's, but features new mechanics. It also has less emphasis on the shooting mode, which the developers commented was their least favorite mode of play in Boom Blox. It was created as part of a deal between Electronic Arts and Steven Spielberg to make three original properties, though it does not count as one of the three original properties.

Gameplay

Boom Blox Bash Party features similar gameplay to its predecessor. It features a new slingshot mechanic; the shooting mechanic is less prominent than in the first game.[1] The game includes new environments (such as underwater and outer space), new block shapes (such as cylinders and ramps), and more extensive multiplayer.[1]

Boom Blox Bash Party allows players to upload levels, as well as download levels made by other players and Electronic Arts.[2] Uploaded levels have to be reviewed by Electronic Arts, with any inappropriate content filtered out.[2] However, a player may download any levels made by someone on their Wii Friends list.[2] Boom Blox Bash Party does not feature Friend Codes, a common method of online play in Wii and Nintendo DS games.[3] Some of the levels uploaded by EA include levels from the original Boom Blox.[2] These new levels will be free for players to download.[2]

Development

Bash Party's development was announced on November 18, 2008 by Variety.[4] It was announced for a Spring 2009 release[5] as Boom Blox Bash Party on January 28, 2009 by EA Casual. The game was developed by Electronic Arts and Steven Spielberg, just like its predecessor.[3] It was a part of a 2005 deal between EA and Spielberg to make three original properties.[3] It was conceived as soon as the original game was completed.[1] Spielberg kept meeting with EA on Boom Blox on new ideas; producer Amir Rahimi commented that there was so much enthusiasm that "he could hardly stop them from doing a sequel."[1] A feature which was cut in Boom Blox was not included in this game either. It was a head-tracking system, which would allow the player to use two Wii Remotes to control the game's camera with his or her head.[6] Because the developers didn't receive the development hardware in time to implement it, Wii MotionPlus compatibility will not be included.[1] In an interview, it was stated that Steven Spielberg had sometimes expressed interest in making a Boom Blox movie, but an Electronic Arts spokesperson commented that this is all just brainstorming.[1]

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
