Anyone have any impressions? It looks like the old DX Ball to me. I might have to TOFTT as I LOVED DX Ball back in the day (and the iOS version of DX Ball was awful).

UPDATE: Very much like DX Ball from what I can see so far. Animation is smooth, touch controls work well and there's plenty of room to slide your finger under the paddle with obscuring it. Not much in the way of sound or a music track, although the bricks do make different tones when you hit them. It's very minimalistic, but in a good way.

I think with a little more work, this could be one. Of the better brick busters out there, if you are into a more sterile environment.

Either the addition of some background music, or the ability to play your own music would help. The only other thing I'd say is that when you hit a brick, give a little more in the way of an animation, instead of just fading it out out. An explosion or a little particle effect would be nice.

But that said, all in all a nice little brick breaker. Well done.
