Description: Boost is a frenetic sci-fi action-sports game that’s designed to get your heart thumping and your endorphins flowing! Leap and dive while you Thwonk the Orb. Destroy Mines as the action accelerates. Compete to a throbbing sound track that evolves as you score. Catch your breath… and repeat!

Review: If you love the classic brick breaker games you might well enjoy playing Boost. It is essentially a bat and ball style game. It comes towards you, you bat it away, but you also have mines that appear all over the place and you need to clear these and prevent your ball form touching them. It is a pretty good game at heart, maybe a little overpriced, but I would pay half price and still be quite happy with it. But sadly it is the games unnecessarily big playspace that really lets it down. You need at least 2.2m sq in order to play it. But not to play the game! Just to reach the menu items and options! The game can be played in a much smaller square. This is a shame and a big problem in an otherwise OK game.
