The better you are, the longer it takes to play a classic brick breaker like "BrickBuster". But what if you don't have that much time? The answer is called "BrickBuster 2"!
Small level packs
Sometimes you just want to play a short time and with "BrickBuster 2" that's not a problem. Since the 24 level packs only contain 5 levels each, it's a perfect game for short breaks.
To keep up the pace, even at the end of a level, the bricks turn into golden bricks when there are only five of them left. To complete the level, you just have to hit ONE of them within 10 seconds. If you fail to do so, the bricks turn into normal bricks again and you have to hit them all to complete the level.
Four different modes
It doesn't matter if your're a happy beginner, a hard-boiled brick expert, a real challenge seeker or someone who just wants to relax for a while. Here is something for almost everybody.
The game automatically saves itself if you cancel it. Then you can continue to play that level exactly where you saved it. To avoid long lists of saved games, "BrickBuster 2" only saves the last game.
You pause/restart a game with the right mouse button. To get into the game after a break, the ball moves slower at first. Then it accelerates and pretty soon it's full speed again.
- Try to get the ball to bounce between the bricks, ceiling and walls because it increases its speed every time it hits the paddle.
- Don't exchange a good power-up just because another one is falling down. Choose the one that's best for the moment!
- Keep your eye on the power-up time! A not so good power-up might be worth picking up if the time is running out!
BrickBuster 2 is a freeware game, so you can download the FULL version
