Break the Blocks - A Fun Game App for Android
Break the Blocks, or , is a fun game app for android. It is by far the best block breaking game on the market. My favorite computer game as a child was Arkanoid, a breaking block game I played on my Apple II. I've been searching for an equivalent game ever since Windows 95 came out. BreaktheBlocks is the closest I've founded. It is easy to learn to play and runs smoothly. BreaktheBlocks
Warning, BreaktheBlocks, can be extremely addicting.
How Break the Blocks is Played
BreaktheBlocks is an easy game to get the hang of. It's kind of like ping pong. Use the paddle, which you can slide across the screen with your finger, to control the trajectory of the ball. Hit the blocks shaped like bricks to break them. Be sure not to let the ball drop or you loose a life. Don't worry though you start out with three balls. Once you break all the blocks on the screen you move on to the next level. There are 50 levels in all to play. The game saves when you exit but you have to start at level 1 again when you loose all your lives
Break the Blocks Hints
What do the block colors mean? Yellow blocks need to be hit once to break. Blue blocks need hit twice. The grey blocks don't break and are obstacles to aim around.
When you break certain blocks special tokens fall out. Catch the tokens with your paddle. Beware not all token are helpful, some actually make the game harder. The tokens are as follows:
- Green 1 - Adds one life
- Purple B - Bonus points
- Grey L - Long paddle
- Yellow S - Slows the ball speed down
- White S - Short paddle
- Red F - Speeds the the ball up
If you acidently got one of the bad tokens, try to hang in there. The opposite good token will fix it.
We you first start a level try not moving the paddle after you first launch the ball. You should be able to bounce the ball straight up and down until all the blocks in that column are broken.
