The game is mostly a good game to play until you finish it. After that you can play at different speeds, but it gets boring after that. So you’ll need to pay for more, which is fine I guess to those who like this game a lot. Might as well buy a 2600 and play on that for even more.
One of the early versions had the ball controlled by a magnetic lash, I miss it! Breakout Valentines and Challenge are 2 of my faves, though I love all of the packs. Slide a ball through a steel-brick is 1 trick. Break out 2 or more bricks simultaneously to make extra point bubbles drop quicker; don’t miss a single one of those to keep your score ramping up! Sometimes the trick is to not accept a ball-modifier bubble! Sometimes to slow way down helps you capture more points, especially near the end of a level lest you ‘overload’ your ball and it can’t accept more points because it’s already carrying a doubled ball into the next level! Enjoy! HapnanHal awaits you!
Something is driving me crazy on this game. When you have multiple balls on the screen and when you break the last brick on the screen at the precise moment that one of the other balls exits at the bottom, the game gets confused and thinks you lost your ball even though there are others left and it take a ball away from your balls remaining (when in fact you actually made it through successfully at that level). Then at the next level when you begin, it starts with two balls instead of one. This results in a lost ball that you shouldn’t have had done. This glitch needs to be fixed and an update sent out. Thank you.
I love this game; great option is I'm able to adjust the speed of the ball. This is the only breakout game I found to do this. I'm 61 and started slow and gradually speed up as I get better. Out of hundreds of games I own this is in the top 5. Hope they keep adding levels. Just jumping several speeds can make it challenging. Someday I might be able to crank it all the way up. Keep up the good work. Can be habit forming.
I am an 80s gamer, Atari 2600 in '81, and to control the speed like Keanu dodging bullets in the Matrix is a nice touch especially when encountering a couple dozen balls, so if you have been disappointed in the classic remakes like me you won't be here, it is just a game you can play for a few minutes here and there.
An old favorite for sure. Too bad you have to pay for extra levels though. I wasn't happy with just 10 levels so I had to cough up for the extra ones. Over all I give it 5 stars and play this game a lot and would recommend it to friends.
I'm not a big game player but sometimes I just need some downtime. This game keeps me on my toes and at 65 years old I'm sure it helps with my hand eye coordination and whatever else. I don't have anything negative to say about it. Oh except that we need some new challenges. Thanks
I am loving this, the play seems right on. I really do,hate the finger control though, I must have chubby digits or something as I find it to be a little sloppy and makes it hard to put English on the ball as much as I would like.
I had this game on my old Atari 400 and spent many hours playing it. This is an updated version that plays without any glitches and I've purchased every bonus pack offered. Love some of the modern touches (acid and fire balls) and the x4 and x12 bonus bricks.
I liked the fact that I could download a free version of the game so I could decide if I liked it or not. I did and ended buying additional packs to add to the base game. Breakout remains what it's always been, just good clean fun with no "blood, guts or gore.
Nice take on an old retro game. The thing is, it does not reward all the points earned on the various screens. For the fifth time it failed to reward points that would have put me in 1st place globally. Otherwise, a great way to waste time.
Super fun game! Please always have this game available in the App Store. Times will change, programming will change but this game must always exist, for years to come. I would love to see more and more variations.
This is so addicting it's sick. I love it. The one thing I can suggest to the makers is to have a way that you can earn or win more lives. Not buy em; that's cheating - EARN em. Like: if you get thru 4 levels you earn an extra life- how bout that?
It’s a great game but a few stages of the game are almost impossible to beat. On the 40 game stage 23 is very difficult to get the ball in and when I did, it came back out. Several times I lost 7 balls on this stage alone. It needs to be fixed to fairly play the game.
This game is one of my all time favorites. I started by playing this game on the Atari when I was young. This version completely embodies the Atari version with more visually appealing graphics to go through. Keep up the good work!!
Please help! Unable to pause game w/out deleting & reloading
I’ve bought all of the breakout games & I love them, but anytime I play & pause the game, I have no choice but to delete & reload them. I’ve tried everything to get these to play. If you’re the developer: please help!!
It's fun enough, but since the screen is the controller, it's all too easy to BLEEP UP and LOSE a ball, or even change the speed unintentionally. This makes it the type of game which should really be free. Better luck next time!
Love the game but the audio mute doesn't work good ... Everything I reopen the game the music plays and I have to unselect, then reselect the audio mute ... Please fix that ... Other than that, great game!
This is awesome. I like the classic Breakout gameplay. The Fire and Acid upgrades make the game so much easier. Only problem is the purchases, but how else are they supposed to make money?! Great port otherwise.👍
An old favorite has returned! The trial version is quite fun but to really get into it you will have to buy the other levels as well. It can be very addictive and a good distraction while waiting for an appointment!
I'm not sure if Atari has abandoned this game but it sure appears so. Trying to restore missing purchases in app does not work, hangs at 'please wait'. The app support link in the App Store sends to what appears to be a nonexistent page on Atari's site. Disappointing since I've had this game for quite a while and did have some purchased content.
This game keeps crashing. I don’t se an update but the game is definitely different and I can’t restore my purchase to get to the locked versions. Gave up and went for the free games but that keeps crashing on me too.
