Brickout Deluxe Pro for iOS Review [TheGamerWithKids.com]

Brickout Deluxe Pro is an arcade style brick breaking game from developer Fat Fish Games. Basically, the game is very similar to retro classics like Arkanoid or Breakout. Each level consists of a series of bricks up top that you must break with your ball. You initially must shoot the ball at the bricks and watch as it bounces back to you. Use your paddle to bounce it back up in order to break more of the bricks. Repeat this simple gamplay element over and over again until all the bricks have been broken and you’ll advance to the next stage.

Although the game resembles its retro cousins, the game has its share of differences. First of all, the game has a social element to it. Mainly you can connect to Facebook and “brag” about your score after each stage. By bragging, the app posts up your highest score to Facebook so that they can be compared with those of your friends. The other difference is that the game allows you to purchase power ups before the start of each stage. If you’ve played games like Bejeweled Blitz, it’s similar in concept where you’ll have to earn gold bricks while you play. You can then exchange those gold bricks for power-ups like superballs, magnets, and multiballs.

Other than that, Brickout Deluxe Pro is just like any other brick breaking game. Controls are easy to learn and use. There is a little finger pad at the bottom of the screen, you slide your finger left and right to move. Basically your finger position corresponds to where the paddle position is. This dose make it a bit easier to play the game as you don’t really need to know where the paddle is, just your finger or thumb.

Overall, Brickout Deluxe Pro is a fun game for those who like brick breaking. With about 100 levels of play, this game should be able to keep you busy for a while.

Brickout Deluxe Pro is available now in the App Store for $0.99. It is a universal app and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.Requires iOS 4.1 or later.
