Summary: Stunning graphics, awesome soundtrack and clever/innovative game mechanisms make the brick-breaker genre reinvented. Enemies are usually dropping lives when you're about to die and the continue option helps sustain the fun so you never quit rage, having to restart all over again. Different bosses and bonus stages break the continuity that would make the game too repetitive. Multiple game modes are also offering a good replay value. Very nice game.
Summary: Arkanoid clone where you can "suck" or "blow" objects around the arena. Although there are many game modes and a lengthy campaign I don't feel this has much replay value considering the base game doesn't introduce anything new besides the physics mechanic. Nothing special apart from the music; I wouldn't recommend it to outsiders of the genre.
Summary: Shatter may seem like one of those lame, brick-breaking games that you've played a million times before; but it's not. It has so many extra features, like boss battles, awesome power-ups, and even different angles to play at. It even has some of the most awesome music I've ever heard in a game. Definitely worth it, if you get it, you won't regret it!
Summary: An innovative approach to the Breakout formula with great gameplay, decent graphic and an awesome soundtrack. The only thing that bothers me is that their leaderboard isn't independent of Steam, which reduces the replay value for me. Otherwise, I would have considered it the best puzzle game in years.
Summary: I bought Shatter on the PSN more than a year ago. As I write this, Steam is selling Shatter with its soundtrack for $2.87. I am gladly paying for it again. You can't ask for more from the genre.
Summary: Shatter is one of those games that might slip through generations, as the Breakout/Arkanoid formula has all but disappeared from the gaming landscape. But as modern remakes of classics like Galaga, Pac Man, and Space Invaders have shown, these titles can be successfully updated while remaining their core gameplay. Available on both PS3 and PC (Through Steam), Shatter is the definitive modern Paddle/Ball game.
Summary: This game may look like it's just "Breakout", but it's so much more. They add in a lot of different elements - different kinds of bricks and balls, power ups, even excellent boss battles. The music is also some excellent electonica (they sell it separately on their site). The effect of the graphics and music together is mesmerizing, it's a pretty entrancing experience.
Summary: It's Breakout. Oh it's twisted this way and that, stretched and molded and made more nuanced, with a fresh can of paint and a fancy soundtrack and some game modes. But at its core, it is still Breakout, and the more you play it, the more you are going to remember the underlying fact that you have basically played this before. It's not as innovative or creative as so many other unique games, although what is there is polished and well executed.
Summary: Awesome game with nice new graphics but a very old school play style. It's Arkanoid, Galaga, Galaxian, etc all wrapped up nicely with a great soundtrack to go along with it. Recommended! Can't beat the price!
