App description: Bomb the 'Burb is the perfect game for any one who sees themselves as a Problem Solver, with over 100 tricky 'Burbs to blow up!

===== DESCRIPTION =====
Bomb the 'Burb is a puzzle game where You, the player, needs to think carefully about bomb placement in order to maximize the destruction of the 'burb. Creating chains of explosions and making buildings fly into other buildings are only some of the challenges You will face in this game.

The game will start out easy, but as You progress further You will be facing trickier puzzles to solve. All puzzles have multiple solutions and trying to "hack" a win out of the game is highly encouraged! This is a game for the distinguished Problem Solver who cares only about the solution. If it works, it works!

===== NON-VIOLENT =====
Despite it's theme, Bomb the 'Burb is almost completely non-violent. Explosives are of course violent in their own right, but the game does not feature any gore. There are no people visible or present in the game. The only thing you will see as you blow up the suburbs are the debris of buildings and trees.

The game features a light cartoon style with buildings and nature looking like small plastic Monopoly figures.

Note: It is best to play this game in short intervals, as puzzles may become very straining after a while. Don't forget to take short breaks and remember: there's always a solution!

Well looks like a cool game so far. Reminds me of those other games which I can't remember the title of right now the demolition ones wher you place the bombs?
Anyway it pretty much explains it from the pics and description, you get a limited amount of bombs to try and blow up all the buildings on the map, getting more points for destroying scenery and unused bombs. The graphics and explosions reminds me of the cubed games by Jared bailey.
There's the usual three star raiting for each level and a total destruction bonus for destroying every building.
Only played the first few levels so far but if you like puzzle games or like me just like blowing stuff up it looks pretty cool.

Greetings!

Happy you seem to enjoy it so far, oooooomonkey! Hopefully you'll like the later levels as well, but they do get more complicated.

We highly encourage you all to post solutions as spoiler-tagged screenshots, would be really cool to see players help each other out! It would also be pretty rockin' to see what solutions people come up with.

Playtesting this game, we quickly noticed that people almost never solved the levels the way we did while designing them, which was pretty interesting.

We'll keep our eye on this place. Have an absolutely awesome day!
