It’s rare that you come across a game that is a uniquely original take on a relatively standard game type. We see knockoffs all the time, or games that are basically just the same old game idea with better graphics and maybe different icons. Unlike those types of remakes, Amazing Breaker is a truly original take on a relatively common game concept.
The premise is relatively simple: you draw back your sling cannon to launch projectiles at an object and break it down – sort of halfway between Angry Birds and Breakout. Except you have different kinds of projectiles randomly given to you and you can control some aspects of them mid-flight.
There’s one that breaks into three as soon as you tap the screen, one that can go through the object your aiming for and explode at a given point (you follow it with your finger and when you let off, it explodes), etc. This adds a whole new dimension to the game play. That’s on top of the game’s other core twist..
The objects your aiming for? They’re made of ice. They are beautiful renderings of stained-glass-like artwork and your goal is to break them down in as few shots as possible. It’s easy to hit the objects (missing is actually more work, honestly), but hitting them strategically so as to do the most break-up per shot is a challenge.
You can bounce your shots off the sidewalls of the screen to hit higher points or get around obstacles and you can use the unique missile type you have on each shot to go for unusual shots as well.
This game is very addicting and a whole lot of fun.
