Core Meltdown is one of a package of games produced by The Code Zone. Games from this package were used, in various combinations, in around twenty different game compilation packages.

Core Meltdown is a single-player, strategy game that is played against the computer on 7 x 7 grid, this is the default size but the game configuration allows the player to select either a 5 x 5 or a 6x6 grid. This is a turn-based game with the player trying to eliminate all the opponents pieces to win. Pieces are placed on the grid in empty squares. If the player wishes they can enhance their piece by placing another in the same square. When enough pieces have been placed in a square the piece explodes and populates all the surrounding squares. Any pieces in these squares belonging to the opposing player are captured in the process.

The game is entirely mouse controlled. It is played in a window which cannot be re-sized. The game has sound, four levels of difficulty, in-game help screens, and a choice of playing piece, colour and screen background.
