  • Summary: Defend the Earth from wave after wave of asteroids, armed only with a paddle and a bouncing ball. Drop the ball and you lose a shield - lose all your shields and the asteroids wipe out the planet.

    It's a new twist on two gaming staples - breaking bricks and blasting space rocks. The
    crisp vector graphics perfectly complement the old-school gameplay, and with modern amenities like leaderboards, achievements, and the ability to resume wherever you leave off you have the perfect game to kill a couple of minutes - or a couple of hours. Expand

    A simple little game, a great little co-opting of two classic game concepts mashed up into one. It's the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup of games.

    Breakeroids successfully melds a couple of retro classics into a fresh experience that's well worth your time on iPhone or iPad. Though currently light on play options, it's well worth the $1.99, and it sounds like additional features are already in the pipeline.

    Breakeroids is a fun way to waste time, assuming you don't have much time to waste.

    If you're the kind of gamer that digs Asteroids and Breakout and are into the retro aesthetic, Breakeroids is one you'll probably want to grab.

    Ultimately, if you like Breakout-style games, you'll like Breakeroids. The game is extremely cheap, so if taking out some asteroids using Breakout mechanics sounds even the slightest bit appealing to you, you're very likely going to be happy with your purchase.

    The drawback is that if you lose, you have to start at the first wave again. I think Breakeroids is an enjoyable quick-play style iPhone game that tries to bring back the charm of its classic predecessors.
