Sure, it’s fun to destroy towering structures using things like grumpy feathered critters, but what about destroying things with actual explosives? While this seems to be a simple concept, I can’t think of any games which use sheer firepower to wreak havoc. Until now, that is.

BlowThis!, developed by HellFish Studios, is a brand-new game that will surely blast its way to the top of the charts. Do you have what it takes to be an explosives extraordinaire?

Even though BlowThis! is new to the App Store, it’s surprisingly sharp looking and fun to play. Sporting fancy OpenGL graphics and realistic physics simulation, it’s definitely an entertaining feat of explosive goodness.

The object of the game is simple. In order to complete a level, you must strategically place bombs and mines around structures in order to clear it from the screen. It’s not as easy as lighting the fuse and running for cover, though. Not only do you have to carefully place your explosives, but you also have to decide how much power (nitro) to use. If you use too much and go bomb-crazy, you’re out of luck and you can’t continue until you earn more unless you collect more nitro in certain levels.

While this sounds like a relatively easy game, I can assure you that it’s a challenge. I had quite a bit of difficulty making it past the first few levels, and the main reason why is because I was a bit careless with the amount of nitro I used. Seeing as the goal of the game is to clear the screen of all structure pieces, it’s not unusual for one or two tiny blocks to be left behind after an explosion.

One of my favorite things about BlowThis! is how detailed it is, right down to graphics and realistic physics simulation. This definitely makes the game more fun to play, but at the same time it’s immensely more difficult. BlowThis! certainly is a test of patience at times and requires quite a bit of strategy to complete levels and continue onward.

Another cool feature of BlowThis! is a wide variety of levels you can play. Three different categories, “Morning Mayhem, Demolition Day, and Dark Destruction”. In total, there are 150 levels for you to explore and destroy. Also, you can jump between categories, meaning the levels aren’t linear. If you happen to get stuck and frustrated on one level, you can switch to another category and try your luck there.

Lastly, the difficulty of BlowThis! is greatly enhanced by the inclusion of various structures which are ridiculously hard to blow up. Similar to stone blocks in Angry Birds, some structures in this game require utmost precision when placing mines and bombs.

BlowThis! is priced at $0.99, which is very reasonable for such a well designed game. It’s definitely a blast to play, and I highly recommend it for anyone who’s looking for a cool new strategy game with a twist.
