- No, it's not E.T, nor any other SF game. It's a casual Wii title

A lot of rumors could be heard in the past few weeks regarding a mega game that was going to come from Steven Spielberg. Some feared that we'll get another E.T. game, others were fantasying about the coolest sci-fi game in the world. Nobody was expecting a Wii title and that is exactly what Steven Spielberg and EA were planning. Boom Blox is its name and the game will be released in May 2008 as a Nintendo Wii exclusive.

Although it is not very clear at the moment what genre
will Boom Blox be, a "full site coming soon" about the game makes us believe that it will be a strange combination between tetris games and monkey characters that look like square pieces of soap. And, honestly, it is not exactly the thing we were expecting from Spielberg.

Anyway, the game promises to offer action-packed interactive activities that takes Wii play to a new level of creativity and fun with single player, co-op, and versus gameplay. There will be four themed environments available, Tiki, Medieval, Frontier, and Haunted, which don't give us too much of a clue of what should we expect, as well as over 300 levels to play.
