Hello Corona Forum!

Why break blocks when you can obliterate them? Brickout Zero Gravity removes the shackles from Breakout and turns you loose in a challenging arcade game where physics are king. Keep a ricocheting ball in play by moving a paddle on one side of the screen while targeting and smashing bricks on the other. Clear the board to progress to the next level, but lose control of the ball and, well, let's just say you'll get to practice your skills a little while longer!

Did we mention there are enemies to deal with? Ones that are a little too smart for their own good, actually. Also, they get smarter the longer you play. Don't worry too much, though, as Brickout provides a few power-ups to give you an edge, like multiball, exploding items and a laser gun! All of this takes place in a polished 90s-style pixel art world, taking you back to the good old days of dark arcade rooms and bubblegum-smeared game cabinets.

Brickout Zero Gravity is a new generation of Breakout. Relive the nostalgia. But, you know, bumped up a few notches!

- Gameplay inspired by Arkanoid, Breakout, and Krakout
- 100 single player levels
- Unlockable bonus levels
- 50 multiplayer levels (iPad only)
- 12 different enemies that get progressively stronger, faster, and smarter
- 12 power-ups to unleash such as multiball, magnetic paddles, and a laser gun!
- Tilting paddle offers enormously responsive controls
- Choose between Easy, Medium, and Hard modes
- Monochrome mode (every bit as retro-cool as it sounds)
- Shot guidance feature to eliminate tiresome "one block left" situations
- No additional loading in between levels, the fun just goes on
- Game Center leaderboards and local high scores
- Score sharing via Twitter and Facebook
- Runs at 60 FPS for super smooth gameplay

Device Requirements:
- iPhone 4, 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (4/5 gen) and iPad (2/3/4 gen and Mini)
- Requires iOS 4.3 or later
- Universal Application
- 25.9 MB

Thank You All!

The trailer video was made using a HD handycam (HDV) on a tripod + Final Cut Pro X + minimal Motion. Thanks:)
