With the release of BreakQuest there is no reason for there to ever be another breakout game...really! I've played most every arkanoid game that has ever come out and I've become an expert on the subject. I've never played anything that came remotely close to being as good a game as BreakQuest is. The demo is a nice little window into a game that only gets better and better the more you play it. Working your way through the different levels is an absolute blast that everyone should be able to experience. BreakQuest is a game that should be in every gamer's library.

Откуда создатель такой феерии черпал идеи, неизвестно, но за содеянное он достоин как минимум памятника. Чего только не вышло из-под его пера — арканоид классический, арканоид на веревочках, арканоид неоновый и арканоид бесцветный, арканоид угловатый и арканоид с исключительно круглыми формами. Но ведь это еще не сто? Правильно, присовокупите сюда дань нескольким древним играм (кто нынче помнит Space Invaders и Asteroids?), а также ряд настольных и напольных развлечений и… сотни все равно не будет. Рассказывать дальше — значит испортить удовольствие. Скажем спойлерам "нет".
You have to buy this! If you are even remotely interested in Breakout games, get BreakQuest! It's really worth the low price. If you still do not believe me, try the demo and prepare to be surprised. BreakQuest could quite possibly be one of the be values for the price of any PC game on the market today.
Apart from most of Break Quest being slightly too easy and the lack of a Multiplayer mode, the rest of the game is flawless. Plenty of levels, lots of replay value, a broad appeal, and a cheap and simple way of obtaining the game through Stardock’s online distribution system make Break Quest a title that everyone should look into.

If you are a fan of Breakout and Arkanoid games, you'll appreciate the highly configurable arcade mode. Set up the game as you like: ball speed parameters, bumper size, customize power ups, select what levels you want to play and much more. Incredible replay value.

Erinnern Sie sich noch an Breakout, einen der Klassiker der Spielegeschichte? Im indirekten Nachfolger von Pong steuerten Sie einen Schläger am unteren Rand des Bildschirms und verwandelten viele bunte Steine zu Pixelstaub. Mit Break Quest erscheint der Urenkel von Breakout und bietet viele interessante Neuerungen. Lassen Sie sich bitte nicht von dem potthässlichen Titelbild abschrecken, sondern achten Sie auf die inneren Werte der Verpackung.
This game has some legs with a 100 stages of varied breaking. If this style of game is your thing, this will keep you busy for a while. It also offers a highly customizable arcade mode for those that just can’t get enough breaking. Between the physics based gameplay, variety of things available for breaking, power-ups and the number of levels on hand, this may the pinnacle of the Breakout-style game. Depending on how much you enjoy these kinds of games, the $20 price tag may seem like a bargain or a bit steep, but the website ( offers a downloadable demo for free if you’re on the fence.

BreakQuest is colorful, fun, and downright clever. Each level you progress though is unique, and often will bring back memories of Asteroids, Space Invaders, and many others which defy description. You also can configure the game in many ways - poking around with the physics as well as alternate game modes. If you are a fan of classic games, or are tired of Bejeweled - style puzzle games, this game is a must-download.

Positive Überraschungen sind rar gesät. Aber es gibt sie! Wenn man etwa feststellt, dass die Frau, mit der man eher widerwillig ausging, eine Topfigur hat und alle Sauereien mitmacht (ein Schelm, der Böses dabei denkt!). So ist es auch bei Break Quest, das einige gern als Breakout-Klon bezeichnen, doch das wird dem Titel nicht gerecht. Half-Life 2 ist ja auch kein Doom-Klon, nur weil man aus der Ego-Perspektive auf Monster schießt.
Meristation (Aug 17, 2006)
Por lo demás, BreakQuest es un arcade sensacional, de lo más adictivo que hemos tenido el placer de llevarnos a las manos últimamente. Atractivo a nivel visual, fabuloso de cara al oído y viciante a más no poder. Sin duda, el mejor “Breakout” de todos los tiempos, tanto para PC como para Mac.
GameZebo (May 12, 2008)
It takes something special to set a Breakout-style game apart from decades of similar competition. But BreakQuest does just that with clever level design, well-implemented physics and a new "gravitor" feature that will keep you happily breaking "bricks" for hours on end.
GameStar (Germany) (Mar, 2006)
Sieh an, ein guter Breakout-Klon: Break Quest würzt das Klötzchen-Sprengen mit realistischer Physik, sinnvollen Extras und originellen Levels. Die 10 Euro Kaufpreis lohnen sich dennoch nur für Breakout-Fans. Schließlich gibt's im Netz massig kostenlose Ableger.
Overall, if you like breakout and just have to have the latest version of it, then this is for you. If not, for a price tag of $19.99, you'd be happier taking your significant other out to a movie.
