Bricks – arcade on iOS

Hey everybody!

I'd like to announce my new iOS game "Bricks".

Bricks is a wonderfully simple yet addictive arcade/action game. It offers classic arcade design but uses gyroscope for gameplay mechanics.

You are rotating your iPhone or iPad 360 degrees to knock out all bricks. On your way, you are collecting bonus bricks and can use shields to prevent the ball from leaving the game area. As you level up, the game becomes more exciting and challenging.

Check out the teaser:



Screenshots:






Bricks will be released worldwide Thursday, May 15th!


Please feel free to post your thoughts/questions. I'd love to answer any questions you all might have.

Regards,
Konstantin (@cocoapriest)

I can't view the vid, I'm having probes with youtube at the minute but the screenshots look great. My husband loves the brick breaker style games and he's excited to try this.

Wow, it looks really slick and fun! The minimalistic graphical design and game design specifically tailored for the target platform reminds me of Hundreds. That is a good thing

Yeah, actually both Hundreds and Dots were pretty great inspirations for this game.
