Ricochet Lost Worlds

In Ricochet Lost Worlds, the classic brick-breaking game is taken to interesting and exciting new levels. Most people typically enjoy these type of games on their handheld cellular devices (like a Blackberry) but why does the fun have to stop there? Why not expand the game and make it applicable for use on a computer. I think Ricochet Lost Worlds has done this.

I am not a huge fan of playing breakout games (usually) but I was pleasantly surprised by this game. Like all brick games, the object of Ricochet Lost Worlds is to destroy all the bricks on the level by bouncing the ball off your paddle and into the bricks. Although tedious at times, there are power-ups available that make the game easier and go much quicker. For example, there are five rings (which resemble the rings from the Sonic the Hedgehog series) and if you collect 35 of these, there is a secret, special bonus. Also, some bricks hold other power-ups, like a time stop, a “sticky” bumper and a security net. All of these plus many more allow you to try and get a high score!

What really drew me to this game was the replayability (not sure if that’s a real word but you know what I mean). There are over 20,000 different levels that the game allows you to download, something that is incredible and definitely not a typo. In addition, the graphics are so awesome, you can’t help but continue playing to see what the new stages look like. In addition, I liked how the bricks moved, something that I have never seen before in this type of game. I would definitely recommend this game and give it four and a half stars out of five.
