Welcome back, haters and reviewers. The question bank is now fixed and you shouldn't be getting any undefined questions. Medals should also be working, but a fix is coming in the next couple days that should get them to 100%. The game's not easier, but it should work better. Again, please accept my sincere apologies.

Welcome to the game where knowledge is a bastard and Lady Luck's his bitch. Drop the Bomb is the newest Pacdude Game, having been over 6 months in the making. Test your luck and knowledge in this intense trivia game set in an industrial warehouse. You'll have to be smart and lucky to gain not only precious Newgrounds medals but also a chance to sit atop the Leaderboards. If you have Facebook, you can even challenge your friends to play.

Wow. I didn't realize making such a tough game would cause such controversy! I'm very proud of this game, as it's quite challenging and those who get on the top scoreboard generally earned it. We didn't set out to make the game tough, it just sort of happened. Now I'm glad it did, though. The original version of DtB was a "click stuff, win at random" sort of game, and if you like that sort of thing, perhaps Cory will re-post it at some point. I hope those of you who are frustrated will stick with it, and maybe learn something. I also hope that those of you who actually have the knowledge to be successful at this game feel well-rewarded. Remember, some people in 1984 thought Jeopardy! was too difficult to be successful, and it's still on 25 years later. Cory was right... Knowledge really is a bastard sometimes.

Why is this on the front page?

waste of my time, doesn't let you have enough time to think of an answer to a random ass question that "why would anyone know"

I can't even type the rest of what I think because I'm so wtf over this...lame

Very challenging

Man, You have to really know alot to get all the wuestions... Sure The Music and movie questions are easy for me, but I hate the history questions. Lots of Variety, but I always get nervous at the bomb rounds...

Nice, but in a way

It was great,even though i thought it was a little bit hard,it was ok. Good work though Musta took you a cupple a days to make those questions because i only went about 7 rounds until i just gave up,some questions i knew though. All in all Great work!

I didn't find this ridiculously hard...

I mean, it's not easy, but it's probably no harder than Jeopardy. It's about standard. I think the problem that the game is running into has to do with target audience. Most Newgrounders, I've read, are in the 13-17 age range and a lot of these questions, particularly the lit and pop culture questions, are not things that they have much reason to know yet. On the other hand, I think reviews like the one that say 'you almost have to read a dictionary before you play this' reflect a really unusual level of tardation so.....there's that too. I failed the game several times, but I beat it several times too, and I don't know that much, so it can't be all that hard.
In any case, it's definitely well put together, and it's not, as far as I know, a clone of any existing quiz games. I think it has potential as an upgraded modern version of Jeopardy, although you might have to work out some way to make the game last longer and be multiplayer in order to make it work for tv. That's all I have to say about that.

Pretty good

It was fun because it made me think which most games now don't do but you made it way too hard. Next time, try making it a little easier.
