Doodle Bomb Review
- Appealing gameplay.
- Controls are accurate and responsive.
- Puzzles are well designed.
- No leaderboard/achievements.
- Not the most challenging puzzles.
Overall this title is a great one to waste some time with. Although you won't exactly be stumped by most of the levels, it is still quite an enjoyable experience

Doodle Bomb is a physics puzzle game where you must progress through 50 levels, throwing bombs at switches to open the door to the next level. This is made more difficult as the game progresses, requiring the player to think ahead before tossing a bomb.
You throw bombs by tapping on the screen where you want the bomb to go. Tapping further from your character throws the bombs harder while you tap closer to lob them more gently. Tilting the iPhone can add some roll to your bomb after it lands, letting players get closer to the target if needed. This scheme works great and is responsive enough to be consistently accurate.
The graphics consist of hand drawn visuals on a graph paper backdrop, and look quite good. Simple and fun visuals are expected from doodle games, and this one does it very well. The sound is clear and sharp, and though it is limited to sound effects, you can choose to listen to your own music. With puzzle games like this, it is often expeceted to feature some sort of leaderboard or achievement system. Doodle Bomb is bafflingly lacking in this department.
You can play the first 35 levels in whatever order you wish, but the master levels must be completed in order. There is no limit to how many bombs you can throw, but obviously most people will go for as little as possible. All in all, this is a good title for puzzle fans who enjoy the satisfaction of simple gameplay.
