==Note==
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.

==Note from LA the DJ, developer and question writer==
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.

Potentially good idea, but seriously flawed

It's very US-centric. Every time I think I'm getting somewhere, some weird question requiring you to know a lot about the US comes up and I'm stuffed.

Try and get some more generalised questions about several countries, and cut the deeper knowledge ones.


pacdude responds:

I think learning about the world around you (the entire world) is interesting enough. Sure, there's plenty of NBA questions, but I've seen NBA scholars in the Philippines. Deep in the jungle, natch. So, I think that the questions are fine.

THIS made the front page?!?

This is absolutely terrible. I'm awed this has made the front page, much less achieved a 3.2 which is already a pretty horrendous score. Eek =|

*Honest* review

this would a kinda good game if (some of) the questions woudn't be that us-centered;
this makes the newgrounders outside of the states to have a really hard time getting the medals;

plus, this game requires much luck; once i managed to score 2.4k out of 3 questions, then i got just 1.4k from answering 6 stupid questions...

luck, and being american shoudn't be required in such a great measure to get any medal; this game really dosen't deserve it's medals >_<

you should also add basic options, like 'mute'... or 'i am not from the US'

overall, i give you 2 stars from the effort you did to animate that door, and manage to lurk enough on wikipedia to get all those questions

No complexity to this game whatsoever

Maybe you weren't shooting for a overly deep game, but what I see here is a boring trivia game with questions that are almost TOO random/irrelevant. Nice try. 2/10 - 1/5


pacdude responds:

How can a trivia question be irrelevant? That makes no sense. The people are right; your review IS useless.

Good Concept, but Broken

I'm going to go ahead and give you 2 stars for the concept and the effort, but every question and response loaded as Undefined... I think you might want to check your code....


pacdude responds:

Check the fucking description, asshole:

If questions show up as undefined, please visit the Flash Settings page at http://www.macromedia.com /support/documentation/en /flashplayer/help/setting s_manager07.html and click "Delete All Sites." That'll clear up any problems.
