The great thing about the whole package, though, is that even if you find a mode you don’t particularly get on with, there are hundreds of other levels to choose from. If you really enjoyed a level, clicking a button takes you to another one with a similar theme, and once you’ve exhausted the built-in selection you can check out a bunch of extras from the internet, using the easiest, most seamless online interface we’ve seen on Wii.
On top of all that, you can build your own levels from scratch and share them, or customise any of the levels supplied on the disc or downloaded from the net. If you think it would be better to replace all the blocks in a puzzle level with exploding bombs and give yourself a weighty cannonball, to make things easier, you’re free to do it.
Despite being rather low on difficulty, Bash Party is a brilliant little toy to mess around with, and one you’ll get a lot of pleasure from regardless of how many friends or family members you rope in. It wouldn’t work on any other console, and as a Wii owner you really ought to check out at least one Boom Blox game. Ideally this one.
