This could be one of almost 700 combos, how are we supposed to guess this? I tried several times until the App Store wouldn't accept random codes anymore.

Thanks, I got it! I'll leave impressions after I've had a chance to give it a try.

Here's my honest impression of your game:

The controls are responsive and have good directional control of the ball. Graphics are HD, backgrounds are decent, sound effects are nice.

However, this game just doesn't offer enough. First of all, there's no music and no way to listen to your iPod either. That's just boring. Also, the game has no options, no difficulty levels, no way to restart from levels you've completed, bare bones. Also, the bricks don't do anything special, no interesting effects or game play twists, overall this is fairly generic and subpar clone of Arkanoid.

There are dozens of extremeley unique and very good brick breakers on the app store, and unfortunately nothing about your game stands out in any way. Given the huge selection of good brick breakers available, why should someone buy yours? If someone wants an Arkanoid game, why not just buy Arkanoid? It offers everything your game does plus much more.

I'm sure you worked hard on this, and I'm a fan of your other game Asteroids, but if you want a brick breaker to succeed it needs to offer something new, or at least something very good. Your game is neither.

One of the best game

IPad gives number of options for games. Clash of Mages HD, BallBreaker, Arkanoid style game and many more. It had a great test for children games such as Toca Tea Party (for kids).

am I the only one that thinks "Ball breaker" is always chuckle-worthy?

How thick is the line between playing games and playing life?
I learned everything I need to know about surviving 2012 from Fallout 1 and 2
