Game Description: Destroy blobs by making matches of 3 or more. Explode bombs to destroy even more blobs!

How to Play Bomboozle:

  • Click the Start button.
  • Choose your style of play... Infinite, Timed, or Skull.
  • Select 'Infinite' or 'Skull' if you want a game where you can take your time to plan each move.
  • 'Skull' is similar to 'Infinite' but a little harder because the skull blobs are introduced earlier in the game. (As the game progresses, different blobs are introduced making it harder to match blobs of the same color.)
  • Select 'Timed' if you want a fast-paced game. A timed game lasts only 5 minutes. So, you will have to make fast decisions to score as many points as you can before the 5 minutes are up.
  • Find a group of 3 or more blobs of the same color and draw a line connecting them by clicking and dragging with the mouse.
  • Let go, or click again, to make the selected blobs explode and those above drop down! (Incidentally, skull blobs can be destroyed just like any other blob.)
  • Lines of 6 or more blobs are rewarded with a bomb.
  • Click on a bomb for maximum carnage!
  • The multi-colored wildcard blobs will match with blobs of any color.
  • The 'Infinite' and 'Skull' games end when there are no more groups or bombs on the board.
  • A 'Timed' game lasts approximately 5 minutes. When the 5 minutes are up the game ends. (I suppose it is theoretically possible to run out of moves before the 5 minutes are up, and the game would end then. But practically speaking, this would seem highly improbable.)

Bomboozle Game Options:
  • The music and sound volumes may be adjusted by clicking the 'Options' button located on the Main Menu. (If you are currently playing a game, and wish to adjust the sound volumes, first click the 'Pause' button. Then click the 'Main Menu' button. Click the 'Options' button and adjust the music and sound volumes. Next, click the 'Back' button to return to the Main Menu. To return to your paused game from the main menu click the 'Start' button. Then be sure to click the style of game you are currently playing; either 'Infinite,' 'Timed,' or 'Skull'.)
  • The game may be paused by clicking the 'Pause' button. Click the 'Continue' button to resume your game.

Bomboozle Playing Tips:
  • Try to make as many bombs as you can by making groups of 6 or more blobs. Bombs will give you lots of points and keep you in the game longer.
  • Use multi-colored wildcard blobs, when possible, to help make more bombs.
  • Sometimes Bomboozle will suggest a move by showing a white moving arrow. Please remember, this is just a random move. Look around. You may find a much better move!
  • If you are playing the 'Infinite' or 'Skull' styles take your time and plan each move carefully. Study the board. Look at the blobs above. Where will they fall? When they do fall, will they make more matches for you? (It is also important to plan your moves with the 'Timed' style as well. But, you will have somewhat less time to think.)

Richard's Rating: 4 out of 5.

Comments: Bomboozle is great fun! All 3 styles: 'Infinite,' 'Timed,' or 'Skull' have their own advantages. Overall, it is a terrific game!
