Editors' reviewThis variation of the classic Breakout outdoes the original in many ways. After launching 3DRT BrickBlaster, you see the same old wall of bricks above, your paddle below, and a ball bouncing between them. Despite the standard gameplay, great graphics take the program to a new level. For example, when you lose the ball, your paddle explodes in a blue flash. In the 3D environment, after you destroy the lowest wall of bricks, you fly up and destroy the next wall. The perspective zooms out as the ball rises, akin to computer pinball games that scroll up. Bonuses and dangers spice up the play. Green items give you power, double the score, create protection lines, or increase the number of balls in play. Red items freeze or shrink your paddle, making you lose the ball. The game is addictive, and every fan of Breakout should try 3DRT BrickBlaster.
This exciting brick-breaker has 225 levels plus 15 special levels distributed on the three modes to give players a sophisticated system of attack weapons that can be built by gaining bonuses. You must conquer and destroy hostile strongholds defended by all kinds of defenses and allies. High-score registration is available on the Internet, as is a level editor.
