    The bouncing idea might not have worked well enough on its own, but Frame Studios' careful choices for items, powerups and hazards give the game a wonderful balance.
  2. I would have spent a small fortune on this game at the arcade if it were released when I was an adolescent. The gameplay lends itself perfectly to the GBA. It's like a cross between "Pong" and "Bust-A-Move" with a good helping of Arkanoid thrown in.
  3. The puzzles aren't very puzzling, but the pace is quick and the action is intense. [Oct 2003, p.140]
