Whilst shifting a ton of data from one server to the other, I now have a little downtime and so have been enjoying the simple delights of this Breakout clone via Google Chrome (and i see there’s and iOS port too…to the app store!)
Like Breakout/Arkanoid/Batty etc, the object is to the bounce the ball into the objects above. However, Mr Bounce adds a novel twist by allowing you to adjust the height of the bounce and also gives you a preview of your ball trajectory to help aiming . This might seem like it’s easier than Breakout but believe me, you’ll need a little help later on as those ‘bricks’ don’t stay static for long!….oh and there’s a strict time limit.
Add in a limited slow-mo feature to help clear the faster moving bricks and a funky 8-bit chip tune to complement the game with ‘pong’ style blips, makes for one fun but short lived casual game. Highly recommended.
