    Block Breaker Deluxe is one of the better clones of Breakout to hit the scene, offering a well-produced take with some cool twists to the core theme. Shame it all has to be sullied a bit with the awkward "nightlife" theme.

    Ignore all the neon '80s nonsense going on around it and this is a solid game. There's plenty of it, and it gets tough as old boots as well. [Sept 2008, p.68]
  3. From the revised control method to the innovative level design, purists will be pretty happy with the outcome of this game. Too bad there is no paddle-plug in for the Wii remote.

    Block Breaker Deluxe is a little low rent, and it certainly doesn't take full advantage of the Wii hardware, but for eight bucks it's easy to overlook the cheesy decor and enjoy this solid brick-bashing entry.

    I think the club theme is a hoot. Come on, some hottie talking about her 3rd husband in a Pong remake is just awesome. Playing with theI think the club theme is a hoot. Come on, some hottie talking about her 3rd husband in a Pong remake is just awesome. Playing with the pointer is a lot of fun and arguably better than the old "paddle" methods. I never felt cheated by the controls. Wiiware is shaping up to have some great bang for the buck... This could easily have been a decent budget title. Full Review »
