Tearing down walls has never been so fun. Breaking Block is to be a faithful addition to the classic game that is now practically its own genre. Breaking Block’s custom physics have been tuned to give the feel of the classics. Tilt-based controls were cloned directly from the delightfully responsive controls in Prepare for Warp, and are a perfect and obvious fit for such a game.
With a palette of 12 block colors plus several special block types, the level layouts are bright and varied. Vertically-oriented blocks and smaller half-blocks add freshness to the gameplay without pushing the genre into alien territory. Each creation beckons for you to lay waste to it.
In each level, there are ten silver coins that can be earned. These coins can be used to buy upgrades to your power. Some coins are hidden in blocks. Some can be earned by achieving one, two, and three-star score rankings in the level. Some are held by alien forces.
At each milestone of your journey, you will need to face an epic battle in order to proceed. For these battle levels, the gameplay changes slightly. The goal becomes to destroy certain blocks that power the block-based alien presence, while avoiding heightened hazards that endanger both ball and paddle.
Every block that you break gives you blocks to spend on unlocking new levels and buying consumable powerups. There are also several different ways to earn bonus blocks, such as completing levels in less time, using fewer balls to complete a level, and keeping the last block from the aliens.
Eight powerups and eight types of equippable rings will all help alter the gameplay to your advantage. Some of the powerups are classic staples of the genre, such as paddle extensions, lasers, the ability to catch and hold balls, and splitting the ball in three. Others are more unique, such as a chargeable forcefield and the ability to project a phantom copy of the paddle that can deflect balls and catch bonus items.
Even some of the classic powerups have unique twists. For example, when you get the laser powerup, the game will enter “Laser Frenzy” mode. During Laser Frenzy, you must destroy as many blocks as possible with your laser in order to score massive amounts of bonus points. Keep one eye on that ball, though, because if you lose it, the Laser Frenzy will end.
The equippable rings provide a more permanent bonus. Their effects include granting extra points, upgrading ball damage, and repelling aliens. In addition, regular power-ups can be purchased and equipped, then activated during gameplay.
You control the game’s difficulty by using upgraded balls that can be purchased with silver coins. Higher-level balls increase the game’s speed, but also give a multiplier to the amount of points that you earn. Using higher-level balls will put some of the game’s later 3-star scores within reach.
With its multitude of levels, over 90 achievements, and over 1000 coins to earn, Breaking Block is sure to provide hours of block breaking entertainment!
