Blast Works: Build, Trade, Destroy is a side-scrolling shooter that aspires to be greater than the sum of its parts. Players control a small ship that can attach itself to the enemy ships it destroys. Enemy ships attached to the outer hull act as breakaway armor to the player's vessel, and they also add their firepower, shooting at whatever angle they happened to face when they were attached to the primary ship. Blast Works: Build, Trade, Destroy comes with level-design editing tools and a ship creator. Internet-connected gamers can trade their custom ships and levels with other players through the WiiConnect24 system.

One important thing that you need to do before you start playing this game is to read the instructions to know the different functions of the editing tools provided. Although there are no scoring chains or even weapon upgrades in this game, you can still actually enjoying playing Blast Works by turning the enemy you destroyed against its previous allies. Your ship will confiscate your defeated enemy making them your shield in fighting the rest of its followers. Your goal in this game is to be fast and skillful enough to avoid the bullets. It does not require much strategy so it would not be so surprising if you get bored eventually.

This game can be played in an hour with 15 campaign levels and because each level looks more like a template, you may get tired of seeing similar shooting environment on your screen. The good thing about it is that you can change and edit everything including your enemyÂ’s tanks and ships. If you would master the editing tool, you can create the most imaginative tanks and armors. In fact, it is the strength of this game, the opportunity for its players to be inventive using the elaborate editing tool. However, you are only limited to three basic shapes; square, triangle and circle but you can adjust these shapes and color them according to your penchant. It may be a challenge in the beginning to perfect the figure you have in mind, but with intensive practice, you will be able to create the exact form you have always wanted to create.

Another exciting twist about Blast Works is that you do not just create your own weapons and war crafts; you also get to create and customize your enemyÂ’s weapons or even their fight plans and pattern. After getting the right shapes and figures for your fleet and your enemyÂ’s, you can start having adventure using the camera. You can zoom, slow down or position the camera in whatever angle you want to get that dramatic feel you want your battle ground to have.

The graphics of Blast Works can be considered unsophisticated, more so because everything is created through the editing tool and it is already up to you and your creativity to make the dull interface as exciting and vibrant as possible. The controller is also accurate and works perfectly well in the battle field but its functions are limited to shooting and turning your enemies invisible. In the long run, this game is worth playing if you want to keep those creative juices flowing and satisfy the imaginative side of you.
