Boom Blox is a puzzle video game for the Wii console developed by Amblin Interactive in conjunction with film director Steven Spielberg. The game presents a series of physics-based puzzles, the objective being either to keep structures made of blocks from being knocked down or to knock them over by various means, using the Wii Remote to throw, shoot, and grab at the blocks. Boom Blox features a realistic physics system; the angle, speed, and mass of a projectile and even the type and position of the block it hits all influence the results of the action.

A sequel to Boom Blox has been released, titled Boom Blox Bash Party.

Wiimote lag

Wiimote has a large amount of lag. "Alternate Wiimote Timings" may help. Fixed and the option removed by 3.5-354.
