Android App Video Review: Break the Bricks

by Erik Fikkert

The Android platform has seen a lot of classics redone for the mobile phones and Breakout is one of the most redone ones. Break the Bricks is another Breakout clone for your phone available free in the Android Market.

The app features most of the popular gameplay elements you would expect from the genre, like directional shots, powerups, and different bricks.

When starting the game for the first time, you will be presented with three different speeds to choose from. I would suggest starting with the medium speed and moving up to the fastest as the slowest speed made the game extremely boring. Each new level provides a new layout for the bricks and made it challenging at some points. The different powerups helped to keep the experience fresh, but it ultimately grew monotonous.

Overall, if you like Breakout, this game is a great free alternative, but I wouldn’t expect to find anything ground-breaking. Check it out.
