Its not embedded. Thats just a screenshot linked with the video page. I tricked you :P
Also, vimeo is now moving to h.264 too so I guess thats why you were able to play it on iDevice. Old vimeo vids still wont work unless they are converted.

Lol, that was very tricky I did actually think it was embedded but now that I think about it clicking the link did take me to the vimeo site...

It looks very cool, 10 powerup isn't that much but if the design is good that can be more than enough. The circular design discourage me a little I'm not much at ease with previous circular Brick Breaker I tried, well except Shatter but it's a bit special for Brick Breaker. The price is a bit high but well I can offer me sometimes golden gifts.

So I played the first four level, yes I lost only after four levels! I can't really comment, it's too few levels. But The 4 levels was really different, so well designed, if I lost at level 4 it's not really a hazard, it's also because it is slightly tricky.

I used the touch controls and it's very pleasant, I felt much more comfortable than with other iphone circular Brick Breaker I tried. The graphics are very cool, ok those of Enchanted Forest or Ricochet infinity aren't bad too, but Ricochet Infinity is missing the ipad version.

There's one point I noticed and found ok but wish a bit different. Your paddles are often series of paddles glued, I'm fine with that. The ball direction is controlled by how you center or not the ball on one of those paddle, that is fine, but your angle control is quite small. This give you more precision on your control but overall I felt I lost more options in controlling the ball.

That's just a first feeling, overall I think I'll enjoy it a lot.
