If you're looking for a fun game to pass the time then you should give Space Blast by XIMAD INC a try. Yes it's another bubble game and is a variation of their popular offering Bubble Birds but here the action takes place in space (to save humanity) rather than in the jungle. I don't normally play a lot of games on my BlackBerry, I'd much rather enjoy the bigger screen of my PlayBook, but I'd thought I'd give it a try.
Game play doesn't veer too far off from the original: players must match three or more balls of the same color to remove them from the field and score as many points as possible to top the scoreboard. Special bonus spheres form obstacles such as asteroids or ice comets, act as helpers by changing the ball to the color you need, or even set off a nuclear bomb to help clear the board. While the concept is the same, I do like how they've updated it with a new look and feel.
Overall Space Blast is an entertaining game that offers amazing graphics and sound, and runs smoothly on my BlackBerry. It kept me occupied during my six hour plane ride from New York to Las Vegas. However, I must warn you that the app size is ~5MB. Space Blast is $1.99 in BlackBerry App World and is compatible with most BlackBerry devices running OS5 and higher but is not available for the Torch 9850/60 or the Style 9670. For a limited time, Ximad is offering the full version with all levels absolutely FREE.
