Super DX-Ball

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
Although its concept and gameplay don't stray far from the time-tested breakout formula, Super DX-Ball's variety of levels help give it a boost. The demo version lets you choose from 21 boards in four styles, including Retro and Fun. The former contains levels that closely resemble those of the original Arkanoid, while the latter provides such brick formations as spouting whales. Super DX-Ball comes with the usual assortment of power-ups and bonuses such as fireballs, multiballs, and paddle extenders. This program's graphics are better than those of many breakout-style games we've played, although the music and sound effects were merely passable. We were satisfied with the number of available configuration options, which include the ability to play in windowed mode, disable the audio, and choose the style of the exploding bricks. If your current brick-busting game has lost its shine, you might give Super DX-Ball a try.

Developer's Description

Super DX-Ball is a brick-breaking game with colorful graphics, an upbeat soundtrack, and classic gameplay designed for the whole family. Michael P. Welch, the original author of DX-Ball, worked for two years to create a brand-new look for breakout games, using tessellation and repeating patterns.

Version 1.1 adds Continue Game option, Board Shuffle option, and introduces several difficulty levels.
