Looks like a stylish little break breaker. Ashame it's only for iPad.

yeah, sorry about that... There is an iPhone version... but not free ATM... I thought this was the iPhone version when I posted, and then after it posted, and I was taken to the thread, and saw iPad, was like 'Oh isht' oops. Made a request to change the thread title, but I'm not sure how long that might take... I'm sure it's pretty low on the mods list of priorities. =oP

a pretty cool arkanoid game, excels in graphics, kinda mediocre in gameplay. initial release wasn't very good but imo the developers made some improvements over time. had this game for a while then deleted it to make space but will get it back on my device soon, its fun.

Noise brings so many things, make my tingling skin freeze.

The iPhone version is free now. I tried it on my iPod but the instructions at the start are bugged. The first set don't appear and when I touch the screen they flash up for a split second and jump to the second set.

So I have no idea how to play the game as I can't launch the ball.

That's it. Tapping the bottom of the screen displays the instructions properly. Tapping the centre of the screen doesn't....

Bump for both versions going free again, but seems to have gone freemium. Even on normal mode, once you lose your lives you have to start back at he first level.

Would buy an unlock because it seems like a great brick breaker. But it says "limited time" to buy 4 lives and continue? Is that 4 lives just for that game? If it is, that's the most assanine freemium system for this game.

Sad, read syntheticvoid's App Shack review and sounded like it was a great game with the normal life system.

Yeah, not long after it was released they added IAPs. Shame, cause it was a really game before then.
