Ball Breaker est soutenu par un graphisme, un bruitage est une animation très réussis. La mission n'est est que plus périlleuse puisque la balle va sans cesse modifier sa vitesse et ses angles de rebond.

The gameplay is very challenging, although when you get a new ball it is shot at you from such close range you can't get to it in time. This is a common design fault and usually happens when the designer or programmer gets too good at the game he is designing. Perhaps more intense game testing is called for next time, lads. But, other than this basic flaw, the game is very good and I hope it does well.

Das Spiel ist zwar von der Idee her nicht gerade neu, bietet dem Spieler jedoch die Möglichkeit, sich eingehend damit zu beschäftigen. Ein Durschnittsprodukt, das zu gefallen wußte!
Happy Computer
Ball Breaker wäre ein ganz vorzügliches Spiel, wenn die Steuerung nicht so furchtbar träge wäre. Man hat oft kaum eine Chance, den Ball zu erwischen, dessen Bahn mitunter recht eigenwillig verläuft. Der Spielwitz erhält so einen dicken Dämpfer. Mit einer flotten Joystick-Abfrage wäre das Programm ein Prachtstück, aber so kommt reichlich Frust auf.
Computer and Video Games (CVG)
Although graphically and musically stunning, and a brave innovative idea, Ball Breaker falls heavily at the last hurdle because it simply isn't playable compared with the Arkanoid and Krakout.
