Detonator is a truly unique blend of an engaging puzzle game with the satisfying reward of the obliteration of empty buildings and skyscrapers.

The challenge is simple - to place explosives in the key locations within a building to weaken it enough to bring it toppling down. Sounds simple. The reality is you have a limited number of dynamite sticks and a whole multitude of different size and shaped buildings.

The result is a real brain teaser that will keep you coming back for more.

  • A super stylish hi-tech presentation makes the experience all the more immersive.
  • With numerous different types of explosives there are literally thousands of possible combinations that you have to consider.
  • Buildings collapse in real-time and fall according to where you placed your charges.
  • Single player games include Standard, Special, Crack and Destruction. Each sets different tasks and restrictions to encourage a different approach from the player.
  • Challenge mode is a race against time to clear 99 levels.
  • Two player modes include head to head battles and timed levels.

League Series Baseball 2

Here's the pitch on League Series Baseball 2:

League Series Baseball 2 offers you the best of both worlds - firstly you are the king of the dugout barking out instructions, deciding on tactics, moving your fielders around to get your best arm on 2nd base and secondly you are the king of the mound taking all the pitches and hitting all the home runs.

Every decision could mean the difference between sweet victory and bitter defeat....step up to the plate champion!

Product Features:

  • League Series Baseball 2 features an incredible 4,000 playable teams!

  • Based on the collegiate system where players graduate and are replaced by juniors each season which means each season presents new tests and challenges.
  • Innovate weather system means conditions can change at any time, providing a realistic edge over other baseball games.

  • Vs Mode lets two players fight to tally up the most home runs.
