Hush! a fabulous tournament is announced, but the entrance fee alone is $1,000,000. You need to travel to different bars, clubs and restaurants to earn cash and build a reputation.

There are many different types of bricks and when certain are broken, power-ups fall down and provide abilities such as a larger pad, multiball, gigaball, ultraball, a laser, a shield, a yo-yo ball, a speedball or a magnet.

A single brick in each level holds a gift for the owner. You need to sway each of the club owners by collecting gifts that their particular tastes.
