Break 'Em All which is a knockoff of the original Breakout from Atari for the Nintendo DS is a fairly exciting game for those who've missed out the original game from the 1970's. The gameplay of course is nothing new. The object of the game is for you to guide your paddle back and forth, using the Nintendo DS stylus as the controller, and keep your ball bouncing in play, and knocking out as many bricks as possible to clear the level. The graphics on the game isn't very new, but they are fairly decent. Where the control on the other hand, is mainly from the stylus which is simple to operate. The feeling of excitement here isn't over the top, but it does carry out fairly well.
All in all, Break 'Em All is a adequate knockoff to Breakout from Atari, and it is a good puzzle game for the Nintendo DS. Sadly, if you've played the classic Breakout, you probably might want to consider pasing this game up, and consider another Nintendo DS puzzle game like Magnetica, Tetris DS or Meteos. But, if you haven't played the earlier classic, then this game is worth a try.
Fun & Enjoyment: C 1/2+
Overall: C 1/2+
I give the game 4 stars overall because there are inherent flaws in a game with rules such as Breakout. There are certain power-ups that can be had, and they range from useless to incredibly useful. The point of the game though never changes. You just need to destroy bricks (in the main mode). If the creators of the game would have expanded, even slightly, on that then the game might have been amazing. I'm being nitpicky though, and overall the game is fun. On a fun level, it fall somewhere between Tao: Curse of the Demon Seal (terrible game), and New Super Mario Bros. (great game).

This game is good fun for a breakout game but it was way to short, I really enjoyed going to the different levels and trying to beat the boss, but all too soon it was over. Read morePublished on June 30, 2009 by Evon Smith
This game is pretty good overall. It's great if you're a Breakout fan. If you're not, it's just okay.Published on January 11, 2007 by Zia2
