GAME OF THE DAY
A blockbusting retro reinvention
Micro Breaker is a brand new take on a much-loved formula.
Smash Bricks in 3D!
An arcade classic collides with neon-soaked sci-fi in Micro Breaker, which shares the smash-the-bricks demolition of ’70s pioneers like Breakout, but takes the premise to the next level.
Micro Breaker ups the ante with towers of blocks arranged in all sorts of challenging configurations – some bricks move around, some are indestructible and others form themselves into bosses.
So what really lifts Micro Breaker above blast-from-the-past status is its variety. Every level fires a dazzling array of power-ups your way – it’s a good idea to collect good ones like lasers and shields, while avoiding inconveniences such as controls that do the opposite of what you tell them to. You can also use in-app credits to buy boosters (extra lives, for example), or balls and paddles with special attributes.
You get points for successful obliterations, with bonuses for completing levels within a time limit or collecting the energy fragments the blocks release on impact.
And if the Tron-like backdrop isn’t for you, a fun augmented reality (AR) function allows you to move the game arena to your kitchen table, your living room floor or anywhere else you fancy. Genius!
