3D reimagining of classic Breakout
Breakout - Off The Wall Fun is a well produced breakout type game but instead of a 2D environment filled with bricks and you controlling the paddle, this game turns the brick destruction into a more complex 3D one. The game features a lot of levels, all of them being integral part of a visual theme. Thus, there are about 5 or 6 levels per theme, and these themes vary from Indian ones to Egyptian ones and so on. You see the playing field from a top down well angled position that allows you to see the paddle and the ball as well as the brickwork that you're destroying. Of course, there are bricks that will yield bonuses or negative effects, just like other versions of breakout, so, I think that you'll want to play this one just for the novelty of the 3D representation. But, unfortunately, as is the case with these arcade games, the novelty quickly wear off, and you'll be left feeling that all the graphical bells and whistles don't really add much to the core experience. Thus, I don't think you'll keep this game as a real replacement to your breakout game of choice, but for the time you spend with it, it will offer you a good enough distraction, worth sinking your teeth into.
