A new game called Boom Blox has been created for the Wii by film maker Steven Spielberg. Created in collaboration with Electronic Arts, it’s a game of knocking blocks into each other and Wired says it’s rather good. In regards to Spielberg’s approach to the game, Wired says:

The man behind Indiana Jones and Jurassic Park is making not a photorealistic shooter but a cross between Tetris and Jenga. It all goes back to when he was a kid, Spielberg says. He’d spend hours setting up his electric trains so that the locomotives would crash into one another. Now, with the help of a design team at Electronic Arts, Spielberg hopes to recapture that spirit of creative destruction in Boom Blox, out in May.
