Those gnomes, those terrible, terrible gnomes
The first time I saw this game, I thought, "oh, just another Arkanoid/Breakout clone." Oh, how wrong I was.
The gnomes continue to haunt me to this day. How they dance about. The flower pots they throw upon my head. Their laughter. Their terrible, terrible laughter.
The only real problem with this game is that you'll keep wanting to play "just one more level," and then you'll realize that it's been six hours and you need to go to bed, but maybe you can just try one more time, and teach those gnomes a thing or two... And is that really such a downside?
This "game" is so painfully slow, that it made me ill. I could have made dinner between the times the ball hit the paddles!
Everything on my computer runs just fine, and the music and little critters all wiggle and play just fine, it is just that this poor game has the ball move and a pace the snails would think slow. If they could speed it up a bit it might be a lot better, it has the potential, but it slays me how slow it is. On top of that if you bounce the little gnomes X times it will "reward" you with something, but half the time the "reward" slows you down, or makes your paddles half size. I mean really, did this game REALLY need something to make it SLOWER!?!?
I think it could have been a great game, if it were not so sadistically slow.
Great breakout clone
Great breakout clone. The graphics are a bit cheap, but the gnomes make up for that. Throwing pots at you and laughing as yhou get out, even if they are falling themselves. There are levels, with the beginner level beiong painfully slow and including a barrier allowing ne free hit on the botting for each given spot.
The cute music, the different powerups, the ability to restart from the current level, all make this game quite enjoyable. I might have purcahsed the upgrade, but i'm too cheap to spend more than a buck or two.
Kudos to the developer!
