Editors' Review

+

Essentially a major update to the original brick-buster, Ricochet Lost Worlds: Recharged plays much the same as the first Ricochet Lost Worlds, significantly improving the variety of boards and the use of power-up abilities. Spiders drop from the ceiling, go-carts zoom across the screen, and torpedoes fly all over the place as the chaotic action builds to a frenzy. Pop-culture references enliven the board designs, and the two-hour trial provides a bountiful amount of arcade fun.

The standard ball speed, ball size, shield size, and multiball power-ups are the same as in the original, but new weapons such as EMP balls, laser balls, and ball generators create an assortment of ways to complete the levels. Sometimes you'll get stuck with no power-ups trying to gamely hit that last brick that's wandering all over the board, but Recharged does a good job of limiting such frustrations. It's not entirely clear how many boards are available in the trial. We managed to get through 44 in the first pack before we reached the limit, but we couldn't get nearly as far in the other packs before using up our two hours. Brick-buster fans should enjoy Ricochet Lost Worlds: Recharged.

    "Not Really That Good"

    April 23, 2007   |   By ExcelsiorA

    Version: Ricochet Lost Worlds: Recharged 1.1

    Pros

    Kind of neat graphics and sound effects.

    Cons

    The game was confusing and didnt make much sense. I also had tonnes of trouble getting the key code after I paid for it.

    Spent lots of time going back and forth with Relfexive to get the key code that I paid for. Wow, what a mess.

    Definitely not worth the trouble.

    "Better than all"

    October 12, 2005   |   By litaichi

    Version: Ricochet Lost Worlds: Recharged 1.1

    Pros

    Richochet Lost Worlds is better than any previous versions and by far, this game is extremely fun due to the groovy scenes/backgrounds. It's more "realistic" than the other Ricochets. Best of all, it's unlimited play so you basically got one stage free.

    Cons

    None right now.

    Version: Ricochet Lost Worlds: Recharged 1.1

    Pros

    They have done a very good job of transforming the old game into a new one. This game has power-ups and different ships. You can also try to collect all the five rings for added score. It also has a good tutorial.

    Cons

    Version: Ricochet Lost Worlds: Recharged 1.1

    Summary

    I loved BrickOut on the old Atari...This is BrickOut on steroids. Great graphics! I have Ricochet, and Ricochet Recharged. These guys just keep making it better and better. You can download extra levels created by users, some of which are interesting.

    "Fun and addictive, but only for a while"

    November 23, 2004   |   By Drew03

    Version: Ricochet Lost Worlds: Recharged 1.1

    Summary

    I found this game to be pretty enjoyable intially. But it wore on me after a while; felt too repetitive. It's stable on my machine though, has decent graphics. Sound is nothing to rave about - just your typical techno stuff.

    "Excellent!!!"

    November 22, 2004

    Version: Ricochet Lost Worlds: Recharged 1.1

    Summary

    Terrific compilation of player created levels. These are the best of almost 4000 levels available through the Ricochet Lost Worlds forum. Great way to introduce new players to Lost Worlds. I have all 3 Rocochet games. Do try the demo. You'll love it!
