BreakThru is a puzzle game that puts a new spin on the Tetris®* concept.
You face a "wall" of tiles of different colors with some bombs and cans among them. Your goal is to clear out the wall. To make tiles disappear you need to double-tap on at least two tiles of the same color next to each other. The more tiles disappear at the same time, the higher your score is.
The top bonus row consists of randomly generated tiles accompanied by bombs. This row always floats from the right to the left side of the screen, occasionally falling down from time to time. You can slide the screen down or tap a bonus row item to drop the row when you need.
When the "wall" is narrower than the screen, you can move all the tiles from one screen side to the other to meet the bonus row when it falls. Bombs and cans are helpful: deleted cans add points to your score, exploded bombs destroy the tiles and cans around them.
As you remove all tiles of the same color, the bonus row will never give you tiles of this color at the current level. As soon as you clear the wall, a new level begins. The higher your level is, the more colors are used (up to 6), the faster the bonus row floats, and the more often it occasionally falls.

I downloaded this with the hope that it would be like the computer game version I used to be addicted to... This version has potential, but it's missing the things that made the old version awesome.
#1 is that I wish the bombs would explode if you clicked on them--the existing way is extremely slow paced.
#2 is silly, but I miss the music and exciting backgrounds of the computer version.
#3 is that the game used to be partly based on speed. If you didn't clear all the blocks in the time limit, you got a lesser score. The current version has more to do with strategy, or at least I must assume so, since the level wont end until you clear ALL the blocks...which becomes very dull since the top blocks that drop don't have the old versions option of being able to skip ahead to see and drop new blocks.
All in all, I LOVED the old version but I probably won't play this much if it doesn't update to be more like the old one. It's just not as exciting as it could be.
Please update this so that bombs explode when clicked. Then it would be perfect
Not like the Super Nintendo game I had as a kid. Waste of my 99 cents.
