Brick Break Blitz 

 

Family Friendly Gaming has covered the OUYA for some time now. Went as far as reviewing the system. The OUYA turned into one of the most disappointing systems Family Friendly Gaming ever covered. The game were so terrible that a decision was made to avoid reviewing any of the games. The OUYA resurfaced again around Christmas time.

Super Icon Ltd has had some tough times thanks to Sony and the PS Vita. I know what that is like. I know what it is like to work diligently on something and it not give back much of a financial return. So I feel for them. Even though I am not big on the OUYA as a system, I decided our first review on the OUYA would be Brick Break Blitz.

Brick Break Blitz is a Break-Out clone. It is the best Break-Out clone on the OUYA. In fact Brick Break Blitz is one of the better looking, and playing games on the OUYA. I have hurt my hand playing numerous games on this system. The poor system controller design does not warrant long game play sessions.

I did run into one problem while playing Brick Break Blitz on the OUYA. I got stuck in an infinite ball loop on level five. Not once, but twice. It is pretty easy to restart a level - which is ultimately what I had to do. It would have been nice to rock the screen or something to get it out of that infinite loop.

The music is nice in Brick Break Blitz. The graphics look good, and the special effects are awesome. I love seeing how things rock around, and visuals explode on certain power ups. Speaking of power ups - avoid the crazy ball if you can. It goes all kinds of strange directions.

Brick Break Blitz is pretty cheap at the $1.99 price tag. It is easier to purchase than use a download code. We messed up and purchased the game instead of using the download code provided. Mainly because the poor set up and design of the OUYA screens, and where they hid the redeem code screen. Hint: it is with the credit card information screen, under the account screen, under the options screen instead of where other systems put it - with the games.
