XBLA: Boom Boom Rocket today

XBLA: Boom Boom Rocket today

It's Boom Boom Rocket's turn to be released this week on Xbox Live Arcade. I'v really enjoyed playing this game on the debug XBLA the last few weeks, so I really recommend giving this game a try. Thankfully you can download the demo for free! New images inside.
Update: XCN just sent us this nice interview of Craig Howard, Design Manager on BBR. As always it's an interesting read.

Downloaded the Trial, pretty fun game. Easy-Medium I was owning. However, when I got to the 2nd song and found out I could only choose Hard, yea, that thing kicked my ass. I'm a nub :/

That's actually a damn good idea. I wonder if that's possible. You'd have to memorize which color button on the guitar corresponds with which button on the controller though I'd imagine.

Anyway, I think the game looks real cool, although $10 seems a little steep. I mean, really, the same price as Symphony of the Night?

It would work and the colours are the same I think. What would be difficult though are when you get a certain two colours together, you would have to press with your index finger and little finger at the same time, which might be awkward.

The colored fret keys on the guitar map exactly to the same colored ones on the default controller (not the orange one obviously). I don't know how many songs you get with the full version of this game, but I agree that Symphony of the Night was the first title which I paid that price gladly for.

Hehe, you get to do that plenty in Guitar Hero anyways.

    Moonwalker Thanks guys for the kind words, I always appreciate it. Soon we can all here just sit down and let it sink in. We still have to empty the rest of my mother's house before all that though. (25 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @GriftGFX: I am at peace with it though because unlike with my mom I did get to properly say goodbye to my faithful friend. I like to think she is with my parents now. (26 minutes ago)

    Moonwalker together, you gotta make that decision at one point. All the signs pointed to it. It's going to be fucked up hard to come back in the house and not be greeted by my little girl, but this had to be don (28 minutes ago)
