Mr Bounce [iPhone, Games]

mrbounce000

Inspired by Arkanoid, Mr Bounce is the new game from Pixelate and Space of Play with music and sound effects by Martin Straka.

Filled with neon colors, ball physics, wonderful electro music, Mr. Bounce adds new ingredients to the classic formula. Trajectory projection and slow motion for additional sense of control plus blockers, pipes and wind makes the classic Arkanoid experience come back to life.

I have only played a few levels and very impressed. Whether we are seeing a new trend of bouncing ball games evolving, but the recently mentioned Squareball and now Mr Bounce are easily entering the list of CAN’s top 10 games this year. Simply wonderful!

Here are also a few tips: Use two hands to control the game, use headphones for optimal sound experience, hit more than one circle of the same color in one bounce for bonus points.

Also, if you enjoy the soundtrack, you can download it here or just try the Flash version of the game here.

Platform: iPhone
Version: 1.0
Cost: $0.99 (Introductory Price 50% off)
Developer: Spaces of Play
itunes
