Just 27 levels and the only thing stopping you from getting through all of them and beating the game is YOU! (Well, and those pesky bubbles). Catch falling capsules (Avoid the Red X's!), collect the hidden fruits and veggies, tame the Umphee, discover the secret of the pearl, enjoy 80 minutes of original music, fill the treasure chest (!!), master the bonus levels, get a high score, graffiti the sand and STAY ALIVE! Will you be one of those people that gives up after playing just once? Or will you become a MacBrickout master and OWN this game? The only thing stopping you from finding out is, well... You.
Some fun things to try:
- Try juggling 3 balls long enough to earn a juggling achievement
- See if you can blow up the Umphee with the bomb ball
- Don't let any bubbles touch the sand for 3 levels in a row. You'll get a clean sand achievement.
- Hit the Umphee with an orange ball. He will dig down in the sand and fetch you a coin.
- Catch two clear capsules in a row to make the clam appear
If you like MacBrickout show your love. Three modest in-app purchases:
1) Unlock full version (you get free balls, bomb balls, lasers, bonus levels, musical bricks and much more)
2) Unlock all levels (faster than trying to unlock them one by one)
3) Super Umphee Ball 5-pack (great way to blast through a tough level)

Some of my favorite user reviews:
"It's like when they remade Tron. Still the fun game you remember from the 80's but a 2011 look and feel. 5 stars!" -Compcaddy
"Whacked out fun, pure and simply my favorite game of all. Even Angry Birds are mad about it..." - R Fields
"MacBrickout is the single best Brekaout [sic] variant I've ever seen - involving not only reflexes but strategy and tactics as well." -green3q
"I find the game terribly addicting and is ideal for someone stuck on the subway for 30 minutes everyday" - Saul S.

IF YOU ALREADY PAID FOR THE FULL GAME (1.0 version): MacBrickout might revert back to unpaid status when you upgrade. The App Store will remember that you already paid so when you tap "BUY", it will ask you if you want to download the full version again for free.
Super Fun & Challenging!
This is a super fun and challenging take on the classic game! The levels are really well designed, each with its own theme and strategies. The levels start nice and easy, but the pace ramps up as you clear out bricks. There are a ton of twists and items to explore that really change up the gameplay. There really is a great spirit of fun in this game!
The 2.0 version of the game made it even better. Now you can play any level you've unlocked, which means this game is something you can play when you just want to kill a few minutes. Or you can always take a run at a high score from Level 1. Plus, the game now has fun and creative music that goes really well with the design of each of the levels. Check it out!
I still think this is a great game!! Now even better. The update allows me to select my favorite levels. That's great for me since my coordination is not so good. Umphee is so cute he should be on a t-shirt!
For those who have had problems with the game-I have asked questions of the developer and his customer service can't be beat. Give that a try if you have a problem. Do the in app purchase. You won't be sorry!
I'm playing the full version. On level one something happened-don't know how-and suddenly it seemed like I had every possible ball and capsule plus the smokin' eye flying around!!! So fun! Then Umphee was bouncing around too and I kept hearing BONUS and
"25,000!!" Way, way fun! There are so many little surprises in this game and half the fun is figuring out how to make them happen again.
That was a blast!! Get the full version!
Great game and great developer
I have games on my phone to take up time when I'm waiting for stuff in real life. And although mac brickout isn't the most complex game, it does accomplish this. It's very amusing with all of it's creative little tricks. It's an awesome old school game!
I also had an experience with the developer. I paid for the full version and then it didn't work. So I emailed the developer and he responded the same day on a Saturday night with instructions on how to get the full version. Very impressive.
