Summary

A classic!

The Good

Krypton Egg is, right after Arkanoid, my absolute favorite Breakout clone, and with good reason: featuring great graphics and music, what really sets this game apart are its excellent control system and level design. The controls are very smooth, unlike other Breakout games out there, so smooth in fact that this is the one game that had me get used to playing Breakouts with a mouse. The level design is nothing short of brilliant, and the "boss" levels really are a surprising twist on a tried and true genre.

In short, I like!

The Bad

Well some of the levels are slightly tedious, but it's a problem inherent to all Breakout games so there really isn't much to complain about.

The Bottom Line

By far one of the best Breakout clones in history. Fetch, play, enjoy!
