That guy reminds me of Mario the plumber, you know... the guy who has a brother named Luigi.

Doesn't seem that bad of a game for .99, but I'll wait for reviews.

I'm actually playing it....isn't that the point?

I guess alot of things can seem similar these days.... whatever...I'm actually playing the game and it's pretty difficult but it's also really fun. Maybe you should try it and then rate the game play? I love games.... they're meant to be played. Hope this "review" helps others. The graphics and sound are really solid and gameplay is smooth...not full of glitches like tons of other games. There's a handful of really solid games in the store and there's also tons of junk (no offense) that doesn't work. This is a good buy.

A major update to Boiler Blast was released last night.

+ The number of levels has been nearly doubled from 25 to 48.
+ An improved difficulty system (with the standard easy|normal|hard options) has been implemented to make the game more inclusive.
+ The menu|pause button has been made less sensitive (to prevent misfires).
+ The menu system has been simplified and refactored for usability.

It's still on sale for 0.99.

If you give it a try let us know what you think.

I'd appreciate the feedback.
