"Splash Lake and Bomb Boat--single-screen puzzlers about breaking bridges."
Rather similar to the mighty Bomb Boat (entry 386), a single-screen action puzzle game in which you defeat enemies by collapsing bridges beneath them.
Peck two unanchored sizes of a bridge with your big ostrich beak and and SPLOOSH, the bridge and anyone on it drowns in the lake. Pretty grim spectacle. Give all the monsters the heave-ho and it's on to the next level. Bring a friend along for double-ostrich fun.
The bright and bouncy graphics make every drowning look endearing and
...the music is nothing short of brilliant, perfectly fitting the perky off-beat nature of the game.
Splash Lake goes out of its way to make you feel at home, kindly auto-saving everything, letting you pick your own custom ostrich color, continue at any previously completed stage, and so forth. If you like action puzzle games at all, well, this is just great.
