When I first saw this game, I didn't think it would be very entertaining. The graphics are very simple, and I just wasn't expecting a lot from it. However, once I started playing, I was hooked! Xploding Boxes by Ebscer is a strategy game. The goal is to start a chain reaction that will explode all of the boxes on the screen. Each level gives you a different number of clicks, and requires a different strategy to solve. The first 25 levels are free, while the rest of the levels can be accessed by making an in-application payment of $2.99. Xploding Boxes starts with five levels unlocked, and every time you beat a level, an additional level is unlocked. The end result of this is that if you ever get stuck, you can usually just skip ahead to the next level, because there are always a few that are unlocked. Ebscer's plan is to continue to release additional content and levels for this game. Version 1.1 of Xploding Boxes will add levels 101-120 and will be released by the end of February.

Xploding Boxes requires a minimum OS of 5.0 and supports the 8520, 8530, 8900, 9300, 9330, 9500, 9520, 9530, 9550, 9630, 9650, 9700, 9780, and 9800. Gaining access to all levels requires that you have version 2.1 or higher of BlackBerry AppWorld installed in order to make use of the in-application payment API.

Xploding Boxes - A free strategy game for BlackBerry


Oh joy...yet another lack-luster and lame game for BlackBerry. No wonder Apple is wiping the floor with RIM when it comes to apps...

L owned an iPhone and iPod touch, beleive me the iTunes Apps Store is the world leader in lame games and lame apps in general. yes it has some good stuff but it's full of crap too.

It's no secret that the graphics on the iPhone are better than on Blackberries if you value that get an iPhone, but I think the new Sony phone is likely going to "outplay" the iPhone.

Oh my, did I say something is better than the iPhone I'm sorry God Jobs please forgive me.

No ofense to the developers, and I'm sure this is a fun game, but it's depressing that in 2011 I am able to see a blackberry game come out with such graphics..

Fantastic, glad to see BB has caught up to 1985 gaming standards. If we're lucky we'll see 1993 in a year.

I freakin can't wait for angry birds on my Blackberry. They should have pushed it when the torch came out, and they could have played it well on the storms as well and now with the all touch curve, torch 2 and the one we'll all have, Bold Touch. It only makes more worth while for them to get it on them. More ranting --->http://m.crackberry.com/angry-birds-blackberry

Sweet Game!!!! The graphics aren't that amazing, but it is really fun. This is the first game I have actually ever purchased!

Fun game, but really the graphics really let the game down. Current BlackBerrys may not be graphical powerhouses like Android phones and iPhones however these are just plain ugly and comes across to me as lazy programming.

Its still a good game however.

to solve level 25 you need to...

in the bottom right hand corner of the screen there are 2 red boxes. press the top one.

now there's a column of 3 red boxes in the bottom right hand corner of the screeen, again, press the top one.

This will solve the level :-)

Stuck on Level 193. It's been 3 days and all my strategies are worn out.

When I get to this stage I give the phone to my 8 y.o. son and he normally clears it straight away... not this time though!


(probably whistling in the wind but you don't get help if you don't ask for it)

SORTED THIS LEVEL. (Took me 5 days. As you can tell, I'm not a genius. )

Now on Level 227 and I can hear the cuckoo birds calling because it's driving me round the bend.
