Hyperballoid HD

Square-Go
17 June 2010
  • Excerpt: Those who enjoy a bat-and-ball game have become spoilt for choice on Sony’s PlayStation Network: We have BreakQuest, Magic Ball and Shatter. Now, we have another. For pennies over £3 you can get 100 levels of bat-and-ball goodness in the form of Hyperballoid HD. These are split into Ancient World Campaign and Planets World Campaign… Love the grammar on that last one. This choice turns out to be more meaningful than it first appears.

The Balls Are Back In Town

TotalPlayStation.com
7 June 2010
  • Conclusion: Much like the original game, you'll know in 5 seconds if this is for you or not. The DLC is a sizable boost to content, adding 50% more levels to this already robust game, but it doesn't bring anything new to the table, except clever level design.

Hyperballoid HD

The Armchair Empire
3 June 2010
  • Conclusion: bargain price of only $5 bucks, Hyperballoid HD has all the old-school gameplay flavor of Breakout and Arakanoid with a shiny-new graphical presentation. But if Hyperballoid HD were only a nifty-looking game all about simply bouncing a ball into bricks, gamers would get bored rather quickly. Instead, the gameplay challenge is increased with the unpredictability of variable orbs being released from shattered “bricks” that affect gameplay either negatively of positively.

Hyperballoid HD PS3 Review

Console Obsession
30 May 2010
  • Excerpt: When Breakout was released back in 1972, it caused something of a stir. It has impacted many people’s lives over the years, some of whom have been quite vocal about it. Bon Jovi was so bad at the game that when he got game overs, he couldn’t take it anymore. The game made Dave Grohl feel dizzy and sent him crazy, a little frayed around the ends. Miley Cyrus enjoys playing the game to get her parties started.

Review: Hyperballoid HD (PS3)

Gamer 2.0
19 May 2010
  • Conclusion: At first, Hyperballoid HD offers a nice, traditional brick-breaking experience with a ton of levels, but issues like the lack of high scores and leaderboards keep it from being an easy recommendation for its cheap $4.99 price tag. If you’ve played the other games in its genre (Shatter, Peggle, and Magic Orbz) and want something new to play through, this will probably do the job.

Hyperballoid HD

Playstation Illustrated
12 May 2010
  • Excerpt: I got my first Game Boy when I was six. Included copy of Tetris aside, my first handheld game was a Nintendo-themed Arkanoid clone called Alleyway . Ok, actually it was Home Alone -- let's keep this our little secret, okay? Alleyway was the second Game Boy game I owned, and it was the one I returned to the most. Its simplicity was worn as a facade for the brutal challenge that was buried underneath.

Tomb Raider Anniversary

Square-Go
12 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Picture a wedding anniversary: typically the husband forgets and has to scramble madly to buy a present at the last minute. Inevitably, disappointment follows and somebody ends up sleeping on the sofa. This was the case with every sequel to Tomb Raider . Receiving each one was like getting a progressively worse presents, until by Angel of Darkness , the wife stopped caring. In 2006, CRYSTAL DYNAMICS took on the task of resurrecting the series with Tomb Raider: Legend.

WorthPlaying
9 May 2010
  • Summary: Hyperballoid HD is a next-gen brick-breaker arcade game. Amazing art and animation, along with a bass-heavy techno soundtrack, will immerse you in the psychedelic world of Hyperballoid HD.

Hyperballoid HD Review

GameSpot
7 May 2010
  • Summary: Hyperballoid HD's brick breaking is competent but far from compelling, and most of its levels are a grind to get through.
  • Pros: Interesting power-ups, Varied level design
  • Cons: Clearing levels becomes a chore, Bland presentation
