Physics-based puzzle games, such as Cut the Rope and Ragdoll Blaster, are certainly popular, but it’s because they satisfy both intellectual and entertainment cravings. In the case of AG Games’ new puzzler, Implode 3D, we get to feed our desire for destruction.
Implode 3D isn’t launching rockets or tossing grenades in a third or first-person shooter. This puzzler is about having your own blasting areas for strategic destruction. It’s clear how much we all need dedicated demolition zones, right?
Contained within these areas are large wood posts, steel beams, barrels, pipes, boxes of flares, and more in various configurations. The posts and beams are typically stacked to create basic structures. Of these objects, some must be destroyed, other preserved. Your tools, dynamite and other high-powered explosives.
Using different amounts and potency of explosives, take down the structures with precision. The standard goals are to level the structures down to a certain height, drop objects on the flares to obliterate them, and undamaged certain surrounding items. For convenience there’s a windowed zoom area to assist in explosive placement.
The game features four locations, 80 total levels, 360º environments, four explosive types, a star rating system, a Game Center leaderboard, and 36 Game Center achievements.
