Boom Blox is a video game developed and published by Electronic Arts on the Wii. It was created by veteran movie director Steven Spielberg and is the first of three projects that he has in development in conjunction with EA. The game is similar to Jenga, though some have noted the similarities with Tetris Blast as well.
Throughout Boom Blox a variety of different gameplay types are presented that revolve around three main principles: Throw, Grab and Shoot. All use the Wii Remote's cursor. Some levels are large stacks of blocks which must be removed piece by piece in a Jenga-like fashion; others require throwing a bouncy ball at the right angle to hit point Blox; others still involve shooting at bandits or zombies. The main modes of the game are Explore and Adventure. Explore levels are tutorials that, in sets, introduce the player to different elements of the game. Adventure mode is comprised of 4 storylines, each with 3 acts, each of which uses a different gameplay type.
A sequel to Boom Blox, called Boom Blox Bash Party, was released the following year, 2009. It has new characters, tools, and blox.
