Brick Breaker has always been a classic game for BlackBerry smartphones. Retroid for BlackBerry 10 gives a new modern twist to the game and comes with both a free version as well as a paid pro one - costing £1.50/$1.99. 

The game is available for all BlackBerry 10 devices and one thing that impressed me greatly was that the developer has included hardware keyboard controls for Q5/Q10 owners - a nice feature. The other option of course is just to use the touch screen where you can place a finger/thumb on the paddle and drag is left and right. It's all very smooth.  

As you would imagine - the object of the game is to destroy all the bricks. Some will offer you special powers when you break them - such as changing the size of your paddle, or slowing down the ball. It's certainly not as easy as it looks though, as I demonstrate perfectly in the video!

With more levels to come in future updates I think this one is without doubt the next generation Brick Breaker. Nice work Mr Dev
