Boom Blox Latest News - Wii

Game Description:When Steven Spielberg signs on to a project, you know it's destined to be a hit. So when he told the creator of the Wii he wanted to build a game for the intuitive machine, they sat down and made it happen. The result? An exciting, building-block game where you interact with the blocks using the Wii Remote. A physics simulation running underneath the entire game make sure the blocks behave as blocks should, creating a parlor game that feels something like Jenga. Now imagine what happens when you incorporate characters with personalities and blocks that explode, come alive, or induce chemical reactions. Now you have one crazy game to play alone or cooperatively.
