A Bit of Explosive Fun with Demolition Master
Puzzle and strategy games can come in many forms and sizes. Not only do they challenge the mind, but they’re also great wasters of time. If you’re totally bored out of your mind, whip out your Android device and play a bit of Demolition Master.
Developed by XDA Forum Member AppMania_ua,, Demolition Master is a puzzle and strategy game where the player place bombs and dynamite on structures and detonates them to make the structures collapse. The player’s aim is to collapse the structures for them to fall below a pre-determined level of height by strategically placing explosives on different parts of the structures. The structures fall with somewhat realistic physics, but do keep in mind that this is just a game, so physics may be exaggerated for the sake of gameplay. There’s a pinch to zoom feature, and by long pressing the screen, a magnifying glass pops up for players to see their explosive placements more clearly. Points and coins are accumulated with each level, and coins can be spent on additional explosives in the in-game store. The downside of Demolition Master is that only 30 of the 240 levels are playable on the free version of the game.
Demolition Master is a well polished, fun puzzle game for those who want to waste a bit of time. It’s available for users of Android versions 2.2 with a free and pro version in the Play store. If you would like to try it out, check out the original thread for download and more details.
