Description

Hyperballoid Deluxe is a Breakout game, but no ordinary, at least two of the three game modes aren't ordinary.

The Traditional game mode plays and looks like you expect. You have your paddle, and a screen filled with rectangular bricks forming a certain structure. Now you are firing a ball from your paddle to the structure, destroying bricks on ball impact. You use the paddle to bounce the ball back into the playfield when it's about to leave the bottom of the screen. Once all bricks are gone, you proceed to the next level. When you loose all your lives, you have lost the game.

The other two game modes, Exotic and Extreme, featuring not only rectangular bricks, but all sorts of geometric figures, like triangles, circles, squares, ellipses and more. Even different sized bricks are possible here. This allows the creation of correctly looking trees, clouds and other tiny things, but also in the level size, like a level, which looks like a clock. Furthermore, motion is possible here. Predefined bricks may move a certain way, loose bricks (which don't break apart on first impact) may fly away on impact, etc. So, back to clock example: the clocks hands are moving.

The game itself offering plenty of power-ups, like paddle shrinker/expander, ball speed increase/decrease, 3-ball, 8-ball, level skipper, different sized balls, different weapons (laser, gun, etc.), and much more. All in all 25 different power-ups.

Furthermore, you have the chance to play through 150 different levels on three difficulty settings.
