Is this Breakout?
No, you idiot, it’s Pinball Challenge.I have idea what they were thinking when naming this game, but this classic Breakout or Arkanoid. You move a platform from left to right and try to break all the blocks. Simple, right? There are a few (maybe big) annoyances. After you hit a few blocks the ball will become very fast all of a sudden, so oftentimes you will miss it. Also you can only break one block at the time which makes the game even more tedious. Apart from that…it’s playable, but there are like amillion better variants out there.
