If you've ever watched the documentaries where demolitions experts bring down buildings with incredible precision and thought to yourself, "I could do that", then Implode! for the iPhone might just be the game for you. Implode! is a puzzle game in which you are given a 2 dimensional chalk drawing of a structure to which you must attach strategically placed explosives in order to bring down the structure to below the required line to advance.

The controls have been well thought out and you simply drag the dynamite or explosive barrel onto the structure to place it. Because of the intricate nature of where you place the explosives, the game has an auto zoom feature that allows you to be precise and see what's under your finger

The game's visuals are well suited to the theme whereby the drawings and all visualisations occur on a chalk board rather than exploding real structures. The game also features some standard, unobtrusive background sounds and plenty of options for customisation including the ability to play your iPod for background music.

The game features just one mode of play, but plenty of levels for you to cause some explosively fun mayhem. As far as physics based puzzle games go, Implode! will give plenty of entertainment value if you like to blow things up, and lets face it, who doesn't?
