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.

Tough games can also be fun!

Many reviewers label this game as being ridiculously difficult and I agree with them. I like the idea of the random bomb levels and the three strike system. However, perhaps a larger time limit to answer questions or a type of hint system like on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire would make this game more enjoyable for everyone.

There's a big difference between a game being difficult AND fun and a game only being difficult. With a bit more tweaking this hard quiz game can become something that's less controversial between us reviewers!

ummmm... Kurt Cobain?

Well....uhh.... this game sure looked interesting. When I first heard the name, it sounded like some cool action game. Then I actually saw that there were medals... and then I decided, "hey, it's got medals, it must be good," so I played it... and found out... that it's a quiz game... which is all good, except that most of these questions are almost ridiculously difficult. I mean, who the hell is going to know, the republic capitol of whatever? It's like you have to read a dictionary before you play this. The graphics are pretty boring too, I mean, come on... same bland effects, and sound-effects that just sounds recycled. The graphics and art don't look bad...... they're just boring. You could just change the backround every round... just to mix it up. Overall... this game has descent art, and descent medals... but the questions are almost impossible, and the art is crappy and bland(sorry). Better luck next time.

3/10

Great game

This is a pretty great game, although there seems to be some cheating going on in the online rankings, as those are full of people with scores in the millions, which seems impossible.
And regarding what "aerosmith1" wrote a while ago, "...Philosopher's Stone" is the original british title of the book, which was changed for the American release.
