Block breaker! No, 'block buster' yes!

In this game, move a paddle called Vaus, to deflect a ball towards rows of various coloured bricks.

  • 1 Player
  • Block Breaking
The title refers to a doomed mother ship from which the player's ship, the Vaus, escapes.

Description

The ball striking a brick causes the brick to disappear. When all the bricks are gone, the player goes to the next level, where another pattern of bricks appears.

How to Play

There are a number of variations (bricks that have to be hit multiple times, flying enemy ships, etc.) and power-up capsules to enhance the Vaus (expand the Vaus, multiply the number of balls, equip a laser cannon, break directly to the next level, etc.), but the gameplay remains the same.
