iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad version of the popular Macintosh brick breaking game. Destroy the bricks by bouncing up one or more balls. Contrary to other similar games, these balls actually behave like real balls, bouncing off corners correctly and even colliding with each other. Colibricks also features rotated bricks, so instead of boring horizontal grids you'll get circles, spirals, and so on.
Many kinds of special bricks will grow or shrink the paddle, give you extra lives, points or equipment like the magnet or laser, and even change the size of the balls so you'll sometimes end up with a screen full of balls of different sizes (and corresponding weights). Some bricks will actually try to shoot your paddle, so stay away from those arrows!
Colibricks features 50 different levels, many of them requiring different strategies so that your score depends on skill and cleverness rather than luck. Gameplay is extremely smooth. The paddle can be controlled by touch or tilt.
What's New in Version 1.2.3
Fixed a bug where progress would not be saved if you pressed the home button at the end of a level with no bricks left on the screen.
I was once the ultimate all time Colibricks champion with a high score of over 300,000. No one in my family could compete with me and I was All alone at the top. Unable to find decent competition, and learning that my brother threw out my iMac, I left my family.
Some ten years pass by and now we have Colibricks for iPad!
I have great difficulty playing Colibricks on my iPad since the mouse is no longer used. It is far more difficult to master. Suddenly the playing field has leveled off. I'm now back with my family and the competition is fierce! Colibricks is a great social-media game!
Fun game great for strategy and hand-eye coordination. But the flaw is that the bar frequently misplays - it will move to the right off the play; it will freeze in place; it will discharge balls without your action to do so. What then is a fun game where you develop skills becomes nothing but a frustrating game of losing opportunities to play because of issues with a malfunctioning slide bar. Fix that in the program and you have a winner - with no fix to the errant slide bar you
Addicted but disappointed
I am addicted. However, within the last year, the touch controls for this game have stopped working correctly. Sometimes the slide bar does not respond to my touch. (No, it's not the device, as I have different devices and I now have a brand new iphone and the game responds the same on them all.) I am Getz g disillusioned with the game as a result of these bugs. Otherwise, this would be a 5-star app!
