Blast Works: Build, Trade, Destroy Review

 

While the game itself is incredibly lacking in longevity, the inclusion of simplistic, yet deceptively deep editing tools keep Blast Works from being a mere flash in the pan. Although continuous content may not be guaranteed, if this game manages to...

Blast Works: Build, Trade & Destroy

 

Better start reading tutorials.

One of the most in-depth creation tools ever in a console game ; Blast Works Depot website is an excellent venue for sharing creations ; Sticky enemies provide for interesting strategy ; Visually appealing

Integration with Blast Works Depot is convoluted ; Creation tools don't make quick, effective level creation possible ; Main campaign won't hold your interest for long

Meh, those sprite ships are boring, the Apollo Justice ship that shoots bullets from the pointing finger deserves much more attention :P

Blast Works: Build, Trade, Destroy - Wii review at Thunderbolt Games

 

When was the last time you played an old-school arcade shooter? Come on, be honest. It's not like you've got much of a choice, anyway. Those titles are of a dying breed; considering the onslaught of hundred-hour RPGs and action-packed FPSs, it's little...

BlastWorks: Build, Trade, Destroy

 

It's a piece of cake to make a pretty game.

Relatively simple yet powerful game editing tools; easy to share your creations; lots of stuff to unlock

The editing tools are overwhelming at first; as an actual shooter, it's merely average

Blast Works: Build, Trade & Destroy Review

 

With creative shielding options and supportive user creativity, Blast Works separates itself from the shoot-em-up pack.

Blast Works: Build, Trade, Destroy Review

 

Robust editing tools, Easy to download others' creations, Tight controls, Tons of options and unlockables, Satisfying gameplay mechanic

Action can be a little too simple, Learning curve for editor is a little high

Blast Works: Build, Fuse and Destroy

 

Stick stuff together then blow the crap out of everything in a classic, 2D style shooter

Sticky gameplay is unique ; Create-your-own content rocks ; Two-player co-op

Actually playing can be tough ; No true online play ; Only for Wii at the moment. WTF

Blast Works (Wii)

 

This game is a remake of a 2004 PC title called Tumiki Fighters, a horizontal shooter in the same style as R-Type. Don't let this put you off however as Blast Works is a very fun game which offers many unique levels as well as a powerful editor for...

While not for everyone it will certainly appeal to many of the older audience.

Blast Works: Build, Trade & Destroy Review

 

Blast Works: Build, Trade, Destroy is stellar, inventive, addictive, and very challenging

The best thing to happen to the space shooter genre since R-Type. Yes, I already said that, but it had to be said again. This game is a must-own.

Blast Works: Build, Trade, Destroy

 

If I had to summarize Budcat Creations' Blast Works: Build, Trade, Destroy in as few words as possible, "Katamari SHMUP 2.0" would be one of the most apt descriptions I could come up with. An upgraded port of Kenta Cho's 2004 freeware PC shooter Tumiki...

Although the initial collection of levels in the main campaign can grow stale rather quickly, the potentially endless stream of user-created content and the unique and entertaining gameplay make Blast Works a very worthwhile addition to any gaming library
