NCS Product Synopsis
Update: March 20, 2002
«©NCSX» Publisher Kadokawa Shoten originally scheduled shipping their puzzle game Building Baku towards the end of 2001. The events of 9-11 derailed those plans but as the new year commences, Kadokawa pushes onwards with release.

   Baku can mean a number of things in Japanese. In a certain video game from Sega, Baku Baku refers to the sound that animals make when they nosh on fruit. In Japanese myth, a Baku is an animal amalgam or monster who feeds on nightmares and turns them into good luck for the dreamer. Baku also means explode. Building Baku. Building Explode. In the game, players place bombs in strategic locations inside representations of world famous buildings and landmarks. The goal is to link the bombs together so as to trigger them but only a limited number of explosives are available per stage. Once the ignition factor is set, the bombs blow up and the building begins to collapse. The scene then shifts to an animation of a building getting demolished. 

   Since there are a variety of building in the game that are of different height and shape, different bomb linking strategies are required to bring each one down. An "Undo" move which goes back a few steps can be used to erase poorly positioned bombs once you've laid them down.

   This game is also known as Buile Baku. The game was released in Europe in 2004 under the name Detonator by Midas Interactive. A stateside release is highly unlikely given the current and ongoing political climate.
