Hyper Breaker Turbo (From the creators of Push Panic!) [Universal, iPhone 5 support]



Are you ready for a new game by the creators of Push Panic? Hyper Breaker Turbo is coming your way!

The Netherlands -- February 16, 2013 – Barry Kostjens & Ricardo de Zoete (RZDESIGN) just announced their second game coming to iOS. It is called Hyper Breaker Turbo, a new breaker game on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch but that’s putting aside the boundaries normal breaker games have.

Hyper Breaker Turbo is not just some ordinary breaker game based on a well known classic from the old days, but it’s actually a completely new action puzzle game like you’ve never seen before. Imagine a breaker game with actual multiple screen level design, ‘free’ paddle control which gives very precise control over the ball, realistic physics and more!

Besides the classic theme that’s filled with 25 action & arcade packed puzzle levels you also get another 25 levels with a special neon world theme and 25 levels with a scribbly doodle theme! That’s 75 levels in total! Try to get the best score globally and also join the world in getting some global achievements, since Hyper Breaker Turbo also has a Worldwide Blocks Breaked counter that will live update with every block that gets broken globally!

Expect this amazing new action packed puzzle iOS game arriving on your iPhone, iPod Touch & iPad around Q1 2013!

Quotes
Barry: ”After the release of Push Panic (http://www.pushpanic.com) I wanted to work on a new game. Some time passed searching for and thinking about a game concept. I always loved block breaker games, but most games where a bit ‘slow’ paced. I wanted something fresh with more action and more control over the paddle. After a lot of experimentation we settled with what we now call ‘Hyper Breaker Turbo’. It has been in development for over two years now. This is a part-time project and me and my wife got a beautiful daughter called ‘Joy Lois’, which is the best thing ever happened to me in my life. Many weeks I only got one or two hours to work on this project, but we’re now finally heading to a beta phase slowly My daughter loves watching me playing the game.”


Ricardo: ”Hyper Breaker Turbo is my second game with Barry Kostjens. Our first project, Push Panic! was also my first game ever and I’ve made this one with Barry as well. It was a great collaboration project and the game did surprisingly well! So we’ve awanted to another game together and you can see the experience we developed while creating Push Panic! in Hyper Breaker Turbo! It’s even more polished, looks better, plays even better and it’s a completely new take on the classic breaker games. You’re gonna love it! Even I do, and I normally don’t even like breaker games!”

Thanks for the reply. Me and Barry worked hard on this next game after we finished Push Panic!. We are really looking forward in hearing your thoughts on it when we release this jewel... Fun fact is that I never loved Breaker/Breakout games and I loved creating and playing this game.

With the art style I've decided to keep it really retro but on the other hand also really modern and colorful. Stay tuned for more updates!

Oh, and congrats for the baby girl!
