In this brick breaker game your goal is to destroy moving blocks and static destructible bricks. Hostile robots will fight against you. Enemy ships and non-destructible blocks will prevent you from breaking bricks.
Many power-ups will help you to cope with the task.
Some blocks contain useful bonuses - rocket enhancer, 7-ball-split, plasma ball, fire ball and various types of weapons and defence. Other blocks contain not so useful power-downs - for example, a rocket decrease or a slow speed.
Tap anywhere higher than the rocket paddle to launch a ball or to shoot. Touch the rocket contour and move it left or right to control the ball.
- 120 levels;
- over 60 kinds of blocks;
- many power-ups and a few power-downs;
- enemy robots and hostile spaceships fighting against you;
- various weapons (bullets, missiles, supermissiles);
- rich sound effects with voiced power-ups;
- music with a space feel;
- beautiful surroundings;
- background ipod/iphone music is possible;
A must for fans of retro arcade games such as arkanoid, block breaker or ricochet.

Fun good times
I had this on my phone but never tried it until today. It is based on a game that I always loved. This one is super fun. They improved on the original concept by quite a bit I must say. Things I would like to see are integration of my music because theirs gets old pretty quick. Also the controls could be improved like perhaps firing and launching for the same position as the control to move side to side. Most of the times I died were because of control error not a mistake that I made. For example, if you are firing the you need to save the ball. It will often freeze for a second. Anyway, this game is super fun and simple so give it a try. Nice job!
If you were ever a fan of the original computer game "Ricochet", then you will fall completely in love with this game. I love it, and it's probably my favorite app so far. It brings back my delightful childhood that I spent playing Ricochet. The game quality is really great, and it's easy for anyone to learn. It can become challenging, but it is never too challenging; just enough to grab and hold interest, and provide lots of fun. I definitely recommend this app, it is well worth the money. Lots of levels.
Level 98 is much easier than level 30
Level 30 and 98 should switch positions.
