Breakout Returns offers truly unique game play from that of the classic arcade original that was released back in 1976. Graphics have come a long way since the release of the original and while this version does not have the best graphics, it is definitely eye pleasing ( I think so anyway ;) ).
The Game play Rules that you need to know.
You have 2 Lives...
You have 7 Levels...
And you have 7 Minutes to destroy as many blocks as you possibly can.
There are no visual timers, but, there is 1 audio cue that your time is running short. If you do not have sound, you are already hurt. This cue sounds when you have 10 seconds left on the level.
There are two modes in Breakout Returns that function with the same rule set, practice and challenge. Practice mode will allow you to select any level to get familiar with or to just mess around without having to worry about your score. Challenge mode is where it all comes down. You have 1 minute per level (7 Levels) to go on a block rampage! Attempt to beat your prior scores or your brother/sisters score.
