"If you're the kind of gamer that digs Asteroids and Breakout and are into the retro aesthetic, Breakeroids is one you'll probably want to grab." - Touch Arcade"With its tight controls and retro polish, we had fun with the…..
Rated 4/5 based on 3 customer reviews.
A quick play tip:
If you tap the paddle, gravity on the ball is increased allowing for control of it's path. A little practice will have you sniping lone asteroids in no time.
The early goings are fine for new paddle-jockeys, but experienced players will be on auto-pilot for several minutes. There should be a "Tempest"-style difficulty select that starts you on later waves but gives you a points bonus. It's just too slow for too long when a quick game is desired. PLEASE boost the pacing.
Apart from that serious issue, this is retro at it's finest. "Breakeroids" has some of the best emulation of vector graphics I've ever seen, the audio design is spot on, and controls are perfect. Powerups are fantastic, but I'd love to see those expanded on. "Arkanoid" fans and arcade gamers in general should pick this up posthaste.
This game is an awesome retro combo of Asteroids and Arkanoid, if you like either then definitely buy breakeroids immediately. I am a big fan of brick breakers and have played dozens of them, and I consider breakeroids to be among the very best, a solid brick breaker with endless levels, lots of moving asteroids, shooting aliens, explosions, powerups, and excellent controls with good challenge. Anyone who's looking for a new and unique brick breaker with great gameplay should definitely give breakeroids a try. I'm also a fan of Asteroids, and the combo here is super fun. It's also nice that we can play our own iPod music. Thanks a lot for adding universal HD iPad support too, now the game is just about perfect!
I do have 2 small suggestions that would make breakeroids even cooler: 1) Give us a new powerup that adds a temporary gun to our paddle so we can shoot and destroy asteroids (this would tie it into Asteroids better and make it even funner). 2) Add an option to turn off the minimalist ingame music (but keep on the sound effects), so it doesn't play over and compete with iPod music.
Umm can you say awesome
A kickback to when games were simple. Really easy concept but addicting. Great game just fun to play. What more could you want!!!!
