Renegade Kid's Bomb Monkey
is a refreshingly simple falling-block puzzler. You line up blocks of the same color, and then drop a bomb to destroy all adjacent same-color blocks within the bomb's one-block blast radius. It's sort of like a simplified Puzzle Fighter
, since there's no timer on the bombs and they aren't color-coded. There are added complexities, like locked blocks that require two bombs to clear and an optional mode that lets you rescue a monkey from a cage (by blowing it up), but the foundation is almost immediately understood.
I'm totally not saying that as a bad thing, either. Maybe more than any puzzle game I've played, Bomb Monkey
immediately gets you into the pleasurable business of making giant chain-reaction combos and watching everything on the screen vanish.
