Boomlings, Can You Handle The Boom?

Have you ever played one of those games that requires you to slide things around, matching the various colors and shapes to create combinations, only to find yourself thinking, “this would be a lot better with some weird little googley-eyed creatures thrown into the mix?” Well, neither had I, in all honesty. But now that I’ve played Boomlings, shuffling around jewels or plain coloured blocks just won’t cut it anymore.

Boomlings is a colorful puzzle game developed by XDA Forum Member Zhenmuron. The objective is quite simple: Relocate the various different types of boomlings into groups of four or more to remove them from the board. The more you pop, the more points you earn. Be sure to make use of the various power-ups and special boomlings to pop as many as you can before backing yourself into a corner.

While this might not be the most innovative game around, it’s certainly nicely polished with some charming little animations on the boomlings themselves. It’s perfect if you have a few minutes to kill. The game runs on Android 2.2 upwards, and if you’d like to check out a short video of it in action, head on over to the original thread.

Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day.
