It isn't as cool than SuperBall 3 would be if it hasn't fps problems, but it's quite a same approach and good enough. It is more modern, with more focus on reflex and fast action than on reflexion and precise control of the ball.
You can turn down the blur in The Magic Blackboard in the options menu. This is still my favorite breakout game on my iPod. (Sometimes I think the black & white version is better though...)

Jet Ball is the other breakout game that lives on my iPod.

Among those listed take care that I haven't tried the full iphone version of SuperBall 3 which has perhaps no or much less fps problems. About this, I didn't mention but I tried the HD version after a fresh hardware restart of the ipad and with no Safari window opened, but there's perhaps something wrong in my ipad and I'm not sure this fps problem of HD version is standard.

Even with Goyness at lowest the game is still very blurry on an ipad and it hurts the eyes. The Black & White version is looking nice but it's just another way to offer a demo and it's not fully functional unlike Paper Breaker (which isn't purely black&white). It would be great to have an ipad version fixing this.

I wonder if the paid additional pack worth it, I finished it and was wondering, ha well the price is low and I suppose I'll try by myself a day, for now I play some other or could certainly replay some parts. Myself I think, not sure, that in a similar approach I would prefer SuperBall 3 if it hadn't fps problems.

I tried the lite for Radial last night, I quite like it. I'd like to be able to touch anywhere on the screen and have my paddle go there though.

I've gone through the thread and got some cool lite versions to play, so thanks for that guys!

P.S - Holy crap @ joelmejiaganan's list.

jet ball, I've played all the level packs 4 times or more! it's amazing!
I've tried also with fast ball option, but it was frustrating, I didn't manage to survive a minute lol...but u can try it if u want a real challenge.
I also have other brick breaker games: block breaker deluxe 2, 3d brick breaker revolution, arkanoid and bricks of camelot...anyway I continue to prefer jet ball

I love this world!

Weird is there 2 Jet Ball? I don't have any option for difficulty of ball speed. It's 1.5 option that I got only few days ago. Now there's a 1.5.1 but not free anymore.

You played the additional paid pack(s)? How good they are in comparison with embedded levels?
