Description

This game is the sequel to Bricks of Egypt, a game released in 2004. It's an Egyptian themed breakout game where you control a paddle at the bottom of the screen left and right, trying to bounce your ball off of it. The stages are built up using bricks, and when the ball hits a brick it is shattered. Clear all the bricks to advance to the next level. You loose a life if you miss the ball and it falls out of the bottom of the screen.

Besides bouncing the ball you also try to collect the various bonus items and pickup that fall down when you destroy the bricks. The pickups give you new abilities, such as cannons, larger paddle and multiple balls, but there are also bad pickups that degrade your paddle or even kills you!

The big new addition in comparison with the first Bricks of Egypt game is the addition of the seven eyes. To get an eye you have to collect special pickups. Each eye has a unique color and help you by destroying bricks and giving you bonus items.

There are a total of 124 levels, divided into 9 level packs. Some level packs are locked, and you need to complete another pack to unlock it. The ultimate goal of the game is to collect all the pieces to the three plaques. To do so, you need to complete all level packs, in all difficulty levels (easy/medium/hard), and each time you are awarded a piece of the plaque.
