  1. The goodies are difficult to recognize and the graphics are not even average, but at least the physics are calculated correctly. Fans of Breakout will maybe have some hours of fun with this game.
  2. With 100 levels, and some cunning design that tests your brain as much as your reflexes, the only persistent issue with Breakquest is the initially annoyance of the sluggish stick control. Get past that, and you've got a solid pick-up-and-play game.
  3. If it weren't for the troublesome controls we'd be recommending this without hesitation, especially at its low price point; as it stands it's still worth a look, just be prepared for some initial frustration.
  4. The presentation’s nice and there’s certainly a lot of ‘game’ for your money.
  5. BreakQuest impresses with creative level design and novel physics-based play but sadly suffers from fundamental control issues.
  6. A crummy-looking Magic Ball, but it's not without its charms. [Dec 2009, p.18]
  7. This is a poor PC port that is in no noticeable way optimized for the PSP.
  8. Shoddy. [Christmas 2009, p.95]

    BreakQuest isn’t a bad game, but it never comes together. The speed problems and the lack of any kind of “wow” just make it something you don’t need to play.

    Horrific controls. [Issue#186, p.87]

    Tagline: Classic arcade game in a new form. I purchased it with a a PSP Go launch and it worth every cent. I haven't played original, PC Tagline: Classic arcade game in a new form. I purchased it with a a PSP Go launch and it worth every cent. I haven't played original, PC version but PSP is just awesome: levels design, especially physics based, very interesting. New bonuses: guns and rockets are jsut awesome. Only two concerns:controls require some tuning to meet your player/reactions skills but once its done, everything become fine and bumper change anti-bonuses caught sometimes in inappropriate moments but its all about your reaction. Resume: Rocksolid breakout kind of game on PSP, highly recommended. Full Review »
