10 word review: Loads of fun – great evolution of the block-breaking genre.

You will like this if you enjoy: Block breaking / Arkanoid / Breakout style games.

The good news: Very pretty, lots of variety in the 3D levels and items/obstacles. Controls work well, with two simultaneous options available. Plenty of content. Easy game but still a lot of fun.

The bad news: Personally, I’d love to see a bit more depth to the level design, meaning the inclusion of pinball style challenges rather than the quality of the graphics. All you seem to be doing is batting the ball back, with the lush 3D environments never really being more than just decoration. Saying that, the game is still great fun as it is.

Arcadelife verdict: Although the gameplay is consistently simple, this cheerful, well animated take on block breaking is fun all the way and definitely worth getting if you’re after a Breakout style game that looks great and plays well on an iOS device.
