Some time ago we reported that Spielberg had made a multi-game deal with EA. Well now it seems that they are ready to bear fruit, or rather game. Boom Blox is the first game in the collaboration and it looks...interesting. Oddly they're developing it for the Wii and mobile phones and is set for a May release.

 This high-energy game
features more than 300 levels, a cast of more than thirty wacky
characters, and an easy-to-use in-game editor that allows players to
express their creativity.

“I am a gamer myself, and I really
wanted to create a video game that I cboom blox medieval1 2ould play with my kids,” said
Steven Spielberg. “Boom Blox features an enormous amount of fun
challenges and cool scenarios for your kids to solve or for you to
master together.”

Fun for kids and the entire family, Boom Blox
offers action-packed interactive activities that takes Wii play to a
new level of creativity and fun with single player, co-op, and versus
gameplay. Players can experience the visceral gameplay - perfectly
suited for the Wii’s interactive motion-sensitive controls - through
brain-twisting challenges. They can interact with entertaining
characters such as the block-laying chickens or baseball-throwing
monkeys across four themed environments - Tiki, Medieval, Frontier, and
Haunted. Additionally, players can remix any level of the game in
Create Mode using props, blocks, or characters that have been unlocked
during the game. boom blox grimreaper layeredPlayers can also virtually build anything they can
dream up. Plus, their designs can then be shared with friends or used
to challenge others to solve their newly created puzzle via
WiiConnect24.

 "We developed Boom Blox with endless combinations
of gameplay in mind,” explains Louis Castle, executive producer. “With
over three hundred levels, built upon a full real-time physics model,
your experience can be as easy or difficult as you want it to be -
there really is something for everyone to enjoy.”

“My
inspiration for this game came while I was playing the Wii for the
first time,” added Spielberg. “From the initial concept to what the
game is today, it’s always been built around the innovations the Wii
brings to playing games. Boom Blox plays on the enjoyment of building
and knocking down blocks, something that can appeal innately to kids
and adults of all ages.”

Developed at EA Los Angeles, Boom Blox
has not yet been rated by the ESRB and PEGI.

Boom Blox is also in production for mobile phones and will be widely
available this Spring. The mobile version puts innovative Boom Blox
gameplay on phones everywhere -- delivering engaging, fun, and
groundbreaking action. For the first time in a mobile game, players
will be able to create custom levels and share them with their friends
directly from the phone, enjoying a rich, interactive community
experience.

It's time for Animania....oh wait, that's not what this is about. This looks pretty cool and I can't wait to get my fingers on it and check it out.
