Ready your paddles retro gamers, as a new Arcade C64 release which has come out preview is now available to download and play on your C64! Developed by Italian coder Wanax that is very similar to Arkanoid and Breakout, is a brand new game titled 'Break64'. The aim of the game just like those other great classics is to bounce a sphere like object around the level with your paddle, while smashing blocks and collecting objects (fruit) that fall.
From our short playthrough Break 64 is a very enjoyable release with responsive controls, animated backgrounds and plenty of levels to keep you occupied. It isn't however as good as Arkanoid, while it may play like a clone, you'll be picking up plenty of fruit that doesn't always offer enough in the way of power ups while most of the time just increasing you paddle size. The game also suffers from hit detection problems with the sphere on occasion going through your paddle. Still though Break 64 is a fun release and a great competition against friends for that high score.
