Appolicious Names Doodle Bomb "One of the Five Best Doodle Games of the Year"

Mobile app review site Appolicious has honored Bottle Rocket's Doodle Bomb as one of the Five Best Doodle Games of the Year.

In its review, Appolicious says that Doodle Bomb  "is surprisingly difficult.... There are 65 levels in all, and your goal is to open doors by bombing various switches. Of course, there's a lot more to it than that. You encounter guards who will shoot your bomb before it gets to its intended target and, at times, you'll have to utilize anti-gravity switches and roll bombs on ceilings to complete the level. You control your bombs by simply tapping an area on the screen and, once it's landed, by tilting your device to roll the bomb left or right."  The author goes on to warn--and we've heard this same lament from hundreds of addicted Doodle Bomb users--"just be prepared to devote some time to this gem".

Doodle Bomb is one of Bottle Rocket's most popular iPhone games ever, with more than 500,000 downloads to date.   MacWorld gave Doodle Bomb its Editors Choice Award and rated it "5 Stars", and Apple has recognized Doodle Bomb many times, most recently in July 2010 as one of the "Best Doodle Games".

If you haven't tried Doodle Bomb yet, what are you waiting for?  Download this famous physics puzzler today from the App Store, and join the fight today!
