Brick Breaker 

 

I have not played a Break Out clone in some time. So when I heard Brick Breaker was being ported over to the Wii U, and Family Friendly Gaming had been provided a digital download code for the game; I was excited. Brick Breaker is much harder than I thought it would be. Thankfully there is a multiplayer mode which will appeal to families. I had trouble in Arcade and Survival modes in the Single Player.

Expect to lose early and often in Brick Breaker on the Wii U. There are a fair amount of balls provided, but it is easy to lose them. Some block set ups are easier to beat than others. I noticed Brick Breaker did not have a very good learning curve. It was a quick climb up very fast. I looked for some option to make Brick Breaker easier and did not find one.

Brick Breaker looks good, and it sounds nice. I enjoyed the graphics, especially the special effects after getting so many blocks in a row. I could max combo really often in Brick Breaker. I wish there was some reward for that though. Maybe an extra ball every time I hit max combo or something. I am still trying to find a way to balance Brick Breaker better for those of us not Break Out masters.

As I write this review, Brick Breaker is selling for $4.99 on the Wii U. A fair price for a digital download in my opinion. There are enough modes and areas to warrant the price. I am not clear if the preloaded Blackberry version of Brick Breaker is the same as the Wii U. I never had a Blackberry so I can not speak to that. I would guess the Wii U version of Brick Breaker is a bit different.

The ball in Brick Breaker would take some weird angles. Like it was going left to right, and then hit a block and went straight down. I had to always be on my toes when playing Brick Breaker. I lost way too many balls that way. Yes I was not paying attention because I thought I had time with the back and forth slow trajectory. Brick Breaker taught me a lesson to always pay attention.
