    Like Jumper-Ball Next before it, this Breakout inspired game is actually a remake of a remake. A re-re-make, if you will, which actually pays homage to DX-Ball by nicking its graphics and power-ups and throwing in music taken from Jazz Jackrabbit.

    Without intending to sound too harsh, this version of Breakout is just uninspired. It’s enough of a stretch to face another Breakout remake but when the original remake is better than the new version… there’s something awkward about the whole situation. Essentially, it’s just lazy. To remake DX-Ball, the creator has taken the graphics from that game and spiced it up with a little 3D. Unfortunately, the three-dimensional aspect doesn’t work too well.

    For starters, you begin will a whole heck of a lot of balls which fly around fairly surprisedly at first, but most of them drop quickly, anyway. Soon enough a handful of balls will knock out most of the bricks and the remaining set you can guide as best you can to the final few bricks. The pick-ups you find will only affect one or some of the balls, so it’s a mixed bag there. Fortunately the levels are over fast enough that it doesn’t make much of a difference.

    In all, the levels are short enough and easily completable enough that the game feels pretty fast paced. Unfortunately, the graphics don’t serve the game well and the initial burst of all the balls going every which way is jarring on every level. Never-the-less, the game is completable and is fairly easily conquered and a sense of satisfaction is always welcome.
