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.
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.
Excerpt: Online services like the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live have allowed veteran gamers to relive old-fashioned formulas and new gamers to appreciate the good ‘ol days when simplicity and purity reigned.
Excerpt: Hyperballoid HD will be familiar to anyone who's played a brick-busting game before. Bouncing ball, paddle to keep the ball in play, and plenty of bricks to destroy with the aforementioned ball.
Conclusion: It is a well realized casual game that is big on the glitz but short on the revolutionary gameplay elements that can really grab you. If they would add in a "hyper" speed option, this game would probably pick up another .5 point from me.
Summary: Arkanoid gaat al heel wat jaartjes mee, maar dat houdt menig ontwikkelaar niet tegen om modernere versies van deze klassieker te maken. Vorig jaar zagen we Magic Orbz, bij zijn release nog bekend als Magic Ball, en Shatter voorbij komen.
Pros: Veel power-ups, Leuk leveldesign, Aardig wat levels
Cons: Maar 1 mode, Power-ups soms moeilijk te onderscheiden
