Boomshine Flash Game for iPhone. $0.99


Flash version: http://www.gamingdelight.com/games/boomshine.php
iPhone version: http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=292242592&mt=8

Pretty much identical. Tap on screen to set off an "explosion" and if one of the dots hits it, then it will trigger its own explosion. Progressive levels of trying to cause larger chain reactions.

Simple. Perhaps too simple. If you liked the Flash game, it might be worth getting. If you don't love the flash game, I don't think it's really worth it.

I'm not one to usually talk about price, but for such a simple game, that's a hefty pricetag. I did enjoy the Flash version of the game, but not $3.99 enjoy, unless the iPhone version has different gameplay modes or something.

This game is now 99 cents. I just tried it for the first time. It reminds me of Bloom for (what I think are) obvious reasons. The play involves more chance than skill which might be a problem if it wasn't so hypnotic. It's a relaxing time out that I'd say is worth 99 cents.

Poor developer got totally ripped off by Facebook: Chain Rxn
Too bad the scoring is like a million times better on that Facebook rip-off.

Boomshine is worth 99 cents for the background music alone. The game is short. If your a fan I recommend Sneezies and Bugz.

Sneezies is a very polished version of this game for the iPhone. Check out the Lite version, it's good for a lot of fun!

I remember wasting a lot of time on this flash game before, but I'm not sure about paying to play it on the iPhone.

I prefer Chain Reaction, which gives you multiple "drops" per level. Worth checking out.

Well, my Wiz just arrived and Boomshine was pre-installed. So, in a sense, it was free. Dotpop does look similar, though I have not done a firsthand comparison. And Sneezies looks surprisingly polished for a Chillingo release. What's the catch?

This is a flash game, not a 4 dollar game, I'm sorry.
