Description

This game is the successor to Ricochet Xtreme. It's a Breakout variant, so you have your little ship (the paddle) at the bottom of the playfield, which initially shoots a ball, and then reflect it back into the playfield. Your mission is to destroy all bricks in the game. Once all are removed, you proceed to the next level.

Unique (at least I didn't saw it elsewhere) about the bricks is, that there are not only fixed and straight moving bricks, but there is also "vibration" in some levels. In example in the Underwater World, bricks will swing in complex patterns, both up/down or left/right, some of them even "fly" more chaotic.

The game offers 4 different main worlds (like Underwater, Volcano, or an Alien world) with 4 sub-worlds each. Each of the sub-worlds have 10 levels, so you can play 160 different levels. There are 4 different difficulty settings available.

On your journey through the game, you encounter lots of usual Power-Ups, like Small/Big Ball, Slow/Fast Ball, Catcher (to prevent loosing the ball), Multiball, 8-Ball, Laser equipped paddle, the all destroying ball (here it's the corrosive ball). But there also Power-Ups to create new balls (not through multiplying), Power-Ups that change the type of other bricks. Or how about a laser firing ball? But there are much more things in the game.
