Xploding Boxes (also known as Exploding Boxes) is a strategy game for BlackBerry that was released this weekend on BlackBerry AppWorld. The goal of the game 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.
The 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.
The game can be download for free with the first 25 levels available at no cost at all. Access to the remaining levels can then be gained by making a one time in-application purchase. This is done using the brand new In-Application payment API that was recently added. By using this when you upgrade to the full game, you do not lose any of the progress that you had already gained up to that point. This also requires that you have version 2.1 or higher of BlackBerry AppWorld installed.
The 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.
