Shatter Review

  • Excerpt: It takes a certain kind of guts to take a classic game, especially one from the 80s, and try to make it modern. You can't go too far outside the original parameters, but you can't just add silly graphics, either.

Expert Review

GameSpot
28 July 2009
  • Summary: The simple concept of brick breaking as the basis for a video game is almost as old as video games themselves. Breakout first came to home consoles more than 30 years ago, captivating countless players with nothing but a paddle, a bouncing ball, and a ton of bricks.
  • Pros: Inventive gameplay builds on existing conventions to create something fresh, Outstanding soundtrack, Memorable boss battles, Good implementation of leaderboards
  • Cons: Too easy to lose sight of the ball at times

Shatter Review

G4
27 July 2009
  • Summary: Shatter is another brick-breaking game, but the good news is that developer Sidhe is following the same successful path that many other classic game remakes have recently taken: examine the formula, update it so that it makes sense by today's standards, and dress it up in beautiful HD explosions.
  • Pros: An inspired re-imagining of Breakout, Excellent electronic funk-rock soundtrack, Very reasonable value
  • Cons: A bit heavy with the circular levels, Can sometimes lose track of the ball when things get explode-y, When there's only a few blocks left, action slows down at the end

Shatter Review (PC)

27 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Arkanoid for the modern gamer Shatter is a great indie title from Sidhe Interactive, which manages to showcase all the great things about independent game making. Free from franchises, huge-budget expectations and genre-pigeonholing, independent games tend to focus on the core needs of most gamers:...
  • Pros: High definition, brightly coloured backgrounds, well crafted techno/ambient tunes enhance gameplay, gameplay is good, bosses are awesome, easy to learn, tricky to master, online leaderboards should keep you busy for ages.
  • Cons: Still a Breakout clone (albeit a great one), can be a little nauseating after a while.

Shatter Review (PS3,RETRO)

  • Excerpt: This modern twist on Breakout is much more than a clone. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, chances are that you’ve heard of the game ‘ Breakout ‘. To summarise – players control a paddle and eliminate bricks at the top of the screen, by ricocheting a ball off the walls of the screen, or the...
  • Pros: New and dynamic ideas, Enjoyment factor, Sharp visuals, Great soundtrack.
  • Cons: Short length, Occasionally too much going in a small space.

  • Conclusion: It must be even more heartbreaking when you have a finished game, but no one knows about it as there is no money left for PR, or it hasn't caught the attention of the hardcore gaming community on the net.
  • Pros: Great graphics, very accessible, many hours of gameplay.
  • Cons: Controls could be more precise. Can be hard to overview.
