EA just confirmed the first game to arrive from its partnership with Steven Spielberg is BOOM BLOX, a 300-level puzzle game for Wii.

“I am a gamer myself, and I really wanted to create a video game that I could play with my kids,” said Steven Spielberg. “BOOM BLOX features an enormous amount of fun challenges and cool scenarios for your kids to solve or for you to master together.”

The title will have more than 30 “wacky characters” and feature “block-laying chickens or baseball-throwing monkeys across four themed environments – Tiki, Medieval, Frontier, and Haunted.”

“We developed BOOM BLOX with endless combinations of gameplay in mind,” saidLouis Castle, executive producer. “With over three hundred levels, built upon a full real-time physics model, your experience can be as easy or difficult as you want it to be – there really is something for everyone to enjoy.”

Look for BOOM BLOX in May.
