If you are looking for the modern version of the classic brick-breaking game then you should give this arcade game a try. Break the Bricks is a nice game in which you have to break all of the bricks arranged in varying patterns using a small ball. Your task in this game remains the same which is to smash bricks by keeping the ball bouncing on a baffle which can be moved from side to side. The difference from the classic version of the game is that there are different colored bricks on offer which have a varying amount of points to offer you. Break the Bricks offers nice graphics and engaging music and sound effects but it is the slick gameplay of this brick-breaking game which makes playing it a fun exercise.
In Break the Bricks, you are offered two locations to smash bricks. One location is named Maya while the other is China. Both of these locations offer various challenging levels to you. Each level of this brick-breaking game is different from the other and features a different arrangement of the bricks. You cannot proceed to the next level until you have smashed all of the bricks in the previous level. There are three different speed modes available in Break the Bricks namely slow, medium and fast. In slow mode, the ball moves at a slower pace while in medium and fast modes, the pace at which the ball moves is slightly quicker.
You get to smash different types of bricks in this game. There are three different categories of bricks on offer. The first one is normal bricks which come in a number of different colors. Each colored brick offers a different number of points to you which can be earned by smashing it with the ball. The second type of bricks is hard bricks which don't break in a single attempt. You will have to hit them twice in order to break them. However, you get the highest number of points to smash bricks of this type in Break the Bricks. The third and last type of bricks is unbreakable bricks. You can't break this type of brick no matter how many times you hit it with the ball.
In addition to the different types of bricks, you are offered various items in Break the Bricks as well which fall down when you smash bricks of the normal variety. The order in which these items fall is random, though. Each item has a different power to grant you. You need to collect the item to avail the power it has in store for you. For instance, collecting a small blue orb will shorten the size of the baffle on which the ball is to be bounced while collecting a large blue orb is going to double the baffle's size. If you collect a green orb, you will get to catch the ball on the baffle and then decide the direction in which it is to be released. You will get a glowing ball capable of breaking bricks without bouncing if you manage to collect the golden orb.
