At £2.49, BreakQuest is another Minis bargain. You don’t have to have been a fan of the original to revel in its eccentric brilliance, and this may well turn out to be the Mini that I play the most this week. Now if you excuse me I’ve got a giant cow to destroy!
BreakQuest is hampered only by the PSP’s hardware – the analog controls just aren’t precise enough to enable smooth, quick movement for your bat in this refreshing take on the classic bat and ball gameplay. True, it’s possible to use the d-pad but the game’s built-in acceleration is a little unpredictable and BreakQuest actually seems to be aware of the host’s shortcomings by giving you a rather generous (but slightly buggy) second chance if you manage to just throw the bat sideways at the last second, normally sending the ball directly vertical. Still, with 100 levels and some cool physics (everything seems to have some sense of weight and collision) it’s a fun, but tough diversion for PSP fans. The presentation’s nice and there’s certainly a lot of ‘game’ for your money:
With 100 levels, and some cunning design that tests your brain as much as your reflexes, the only persistent issue with Breakquest is the initially annoyance of the sluggish stick control. Get past that, and you've got a solid pick-up-and-play game.
BreakQuest is a PC game that was ported over to the PSP and the PS3 through the minis program. Whether you play it on your PSP or PS3, you will can expect the same presentation value despite the screen size. Its unique looking levels and sound design engross you in the game, and the many power-ups keep you on your toes when the balls are flying. Give this game a chance and you will find yourself not being able to stop playing.
