Micro Breaker is a modern take on the Breakout style games where you control a paddle at the bottom of the screen and have to destroy all the blocks by bouncing a ball into them, whilst ensuring the ball itself doesn’t slip past you. This modern spin on that idea will be available for iOS on November 13th.
The first major difference you’ll notice when perusing the screenshots available for Micro Breaker is that it’s going to be 3D. On top of that, it’s also going to have realistic physics, which means that if you manage to knock down a fairly integral part of a stack of blocks, they’ll all come tumbling down.
You’ll also be doing a little more than simply bouncing a ball into a pile of brick. You’ll also be able to grab yourself one of over 50 power-ups that include multi-ball, lasers and the usual being able to increase the size of your paddle. It’s certainly nothing new to this type of game but with its neon-blocky graphics, these power-ups do make Micro Breaker look very stylish.
The developer says there will also be several other variables throughout the games 130 levels. This appears to take the form of structures that can actually move, thus making them harder to hit. There are boss-type enemies that have unbreakable blocks to protect their more vulnerable parts. This will mean you’ll have to get your angles and timing spot on to bring them down.
Micro Breaker can also be played in either portrait or landscape, which is always good to hear. Extra choices for how you can play a game are never a bad thing in my book. There will also be an Augmented Reality mode too if you want to smash 3D bricks in your living room or on a train.
Micro Breaker will be available on the App Store on November 13th. It will be a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
