Editors' review

Dynomite is an amusing prehistoric twist on a classic puzzle game. Although we found the game fun to play, we thought the graphics were a little below PopCap's usual high standards.

Much like the classic computer game Snood, the object of Dynomite is to shoot an object (in this case, a dinosaur egg) at a group of two or more similar objects, causing them to disappear and take any attached objects with them, with the goal of clearing the board. Dynomite offers several variations on this theme, including an endless puzzle, a puzzle that's periodically shaken up by an angry dinosaur, a puzzle in which the goal is to unlock part of a fossil that's locked in the eggs, and a time trial in which users can clear the board as quickly or as slowly as they like. Several dinosaur characters add an amusing touch to the game, and there are plenty little tricks and bonuses within the game to keep it interesting. It includes a detailed tutorial that explains the important aspects of gameplay. Overall it's a decent and entertaining game, but we found the graphics to be a bit lacking. They're not awful, but they're not as sleek and sharp as most of the other games we've seen from PopCap. Still, although we've seen many variations on this style of puzzle game, we found Dynomite to be a worthwhile addition to the genre.

Dynomite has a 60-minute trial period. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
