HOLY CRAP! Not much to say on this one other than BRICK BREAKER IS BACK! 

​BlackBerry has released a beta version of Brick Breaker for BlackBerry 10 devices. It's in beta but it still looks awesome. I never thought we'd see the day when Brick Breaker made a triumphant return to BB10, but here it is. Revamped, bold and totally retro. I'm having addiction issues already.

It's available free right now for all BlackBerry 10 devices -- so go get it!!

Lol. Looks like Chen is right, they are indeed going back to their basics and what they know best. This is certainly a BlackBerry cultural thing - brick breaker and BlackBerry's is like peanut butter and jelly.

This app is over a year old lol, Bla1ze even mentioned it in a comment on a post last October http://crackberry.com/farewell-brick-breaker-ill-miss-you
Nice to see it in BB World I suppose.

Lostonline

Release date = dec 2013.

It wont be a year old for a while

BB until it is not CDN

SCrid2000

It was released on BlackBerry's github over a year ago. It's new to BlackBerry World, but it's not a new app.

phylez

Can i be an ass for a second? This is great and all but if we're doing legacy stuff, can we focus on all of the legacy features that were NOT made available in BB10? Speed dial for Q10 anyone? Customizable sound profiles? Ability to highlight an email address in the contacts app and have the ability to copy it? The list goes on. What happened to this being a tool and not a toy ffs?

I agree, Word Mole was what kept me on BlackBerry....mostly....maybe. Best game, ever.

By the way, there is an iOS game called, word weasel or something like that. It is a little too similar to Word Mole to be a simple coincidence, but it makes me wonder why someone would develop a half-azzed version of one of the most popular BB games for another platform and not BB10.

Sweet! :) I hope it comes pre loaded on new BlackBerrys!

It's a pretty neat version, although it's a touch slow moving, and I miss being able to move the paddle with my finger. Using the direction arrows makes it a bit more difficult.

is this! Brick breaker from the early 1900's?

Posted via CB10

ARWestenberger

I think in order to play brick breaker in the early 1900s you would need actual rocks and bricks. Or possibly a hammer.

Not according to trroystory. They probably had cell phones and everything back then.

I was looking for that.

Come on, guys. It's brick breaker.
Why every body act like it's the second coming.

I rarely played that when I was on legacy OS.

tayl0rd

Yeah. I played that game maybe once way back when I was still using my Storm2. Wasn't all that fun to play. Then again, the only brick breaker game I ever really enjoyed was Arkanoid.

Arkanoid was the truth. #Classic

This is different. Would be nice if they had a help function or something to say what all of the power ups do, what certain bricks mean, etc. I see someone said the controls change with the difficulty. They should explain that too and give the option to change the controls regardless of difficulty. It's still in Beta so, hopefully, they will address these things. I like the retro look and feel and the kid with the board is a nice twist in my opinion. I wonder how often they will have scenes like the intro to keep the story going. Lol

Maybe they should focus on improving the other nagging issues in BBM and the OS rather than developing a nostalgic game. IDK just a suggestion.

Kamika007z

Or how about both? They need to step their game up.

I'm glad they released this. It shows that they are committed to their consumers as well.

BerryRipe

I actually like the original so much better but still cool to see.

It needs a vertical options and a virtual track pad at the bottom so it can be played with one hand. And you wouldn't have to cover the entire character with your thumb.

I don't like it on the Q10. It takes some practice to get the hang of the P and Q buttons, I'd rather use my finger to move the paddle. I wish the old one were back.

Posted via CB10

crankedcoffee

For a beta game it's a lot of fun! I miss having track pad control for it on my Q5. With screen real-estate being limited on the Q5 it would seem that it's a little more geared to the Z's. I can't wait for the final product!

I finished all the levels in my first game itself! The game says "you have cleared all the levels. Now you are the master of brick breaker" and there is no option to go back or save this. It's stuck in this screen. Please help!

pvphooman

A bit awkward trying not to cover the guy with my finger. It's easier to see where the ball is going, but harder to keep control of the guy.

Brick breaker was awesome because of the trackball but it's nice to see BlackBerry embrace it's roots and bring this game for us. Thanks!

What a week, I can now pay for coffee & donuts with my phone, play Brick Breaker (fond memories of playing Brick Breaker at the airport in St John's NL while waiting out a snow storm. Didn't think I would make it home that time...) and my $200 unlocked Z(ed)10 is scheduled to show up at my US address tomorrow. What else could be on the horizon????

There are lots of complex and fun games on BB10, but sometimes the simplest ones provide the most fun. Welcome back Brick Breaker.

It runs at 61FPS? WOW!!! How do you show the FPS? Didn't know you could do that.

This makes BrickBreaker on my 7230 look good, it's a shit game, let's be honest. They couldn't leave it alone, they had to ruin BrickBreaker too.

This doesn't look like the BrickBreaker I remember. Nice game, but I thought it would be "retro" as in "legacy BBOS"... This is like a whole new game. A good game, but not "classic" brickbreaker.

liakos

Is this thing what Blackberry can make of the Brickbreaker? I can now understand why they managed to get to the state they are in.
Bring back the good old Brickbreaker.

URBANINDO

It looks very crappy.. I don't download it if it looks like that
