Geek of the Week: Implode! XL on the iPad

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      What’s more fun than blowing things up? Blowing things up on the iPad.

      Developed by Vancouver-based IUGO Mobile Entertainment, Implode! XL is a physics-based game that offers 150 structures for your demolishing pleasure.

      You place the explosives, hit the plunger, and watch as they’re reduced to rubble. The elegance of each implosion determines the letter grade you get.

      When you’ve done all the levels, you can create your own projects and download those other gamers have made.

      Implode! XL, which also works on the iPhone and the iPod Touch, goes for $2.99 in the App Store.

      Two free versions, Implode! Lite and Implode! Nature, each feature 10 structures—more than enough to get you hooked.
