Nintendo continues to improve on an almost weekly basis in terms of
bringing in indie developers. Brickblast U is the latest example to
enter Family Friendly Gaming Universe. What kind of game is Brickblast U
on the Wii U? It is a Breakout kind of a video game. With rockets and
Someone out there is probably thinking of sharks with laser beams. But that movie has nothing to do with Brickblast U. And it is not very family friendly baby. Your paddle can earn power ups that allow limited rockets and/or laser beam attacks. Those can be extremely helpful in a pinch.
The worst part about Brickblast U is the timer. This will slow your progress through the fourteen levels. Which seems a bit low for a downloadable video game selling for $3.99. Brickblast U does have one major ray of shining light. Can you guess what it is?
Brickblast U has amazing sounds, and sound bytes. Brickblast U feels like an old school arcade video game. The music in Brickblast U can pump up the volume to the point where your mind is aware, alert, and SQUIRREL! Sorry got a bit distracted, and had to wait for my arm to stop shaking from all the blood flow.
Graphically Brickblast U is okay looking. There are strange designs on the floors of some of the levels. There is also this freaky looking screen that scares little children, and little monsters before we play levels. I have no earthly idea what it is. It just scares me.
The final verdict is Brickblast U is a solid Break Out clone. It is a bit on the short side. There could have been more modes. The sounds excel, and the rest of this Wii U video game shows promise for this developer in the future. Brickblast U shows you do not need massive teams to bring innovative ideas to the industry.
