Under rating threshold (show) good graphics, sfx and all, BUT the user interface is sluggish and broken by design: The further I move the mouse cursor away from the ship, the more I have to move it back towards the ship before the ship reacts. So I often move the mouse cursor a little bit and expect the ship to move accordingly. But instaead only my mouse cursor moves towards the ship and the ship does not move at all. It always breaks my flow to try to keep track of that "out of the box"-movement. In such a fast paced game, this is constantly frustrating and killing (at least) me. The alternative - that the ship moves instantly, without requiring the mouse cursor over it, probaly also has disadvantages. But in that case, if there is no good solution, flash may not be a platform for breakout style games at all. I wonder why you made one anyway.

Under rating threshold (show) Really nice game, deserves a much higher rating than it has! Also if you hold down the left mouse button then the ship moves even if the cursor is outside the screen.

Under rating threshold (show) Something to keep in mind, is that unlocking levels is about increasing your combined level score, and not just for the level previous.

Under rating threshold (show) Its impossible for a human to clear any numbered level. Some times the ball bounces so slow- if it was always insanely frenetic then maybe with quick reflexes and a good deal of luck but as it is impossible except for the practice level.

Under rating threshold (show) Nice idea, but the timer is annoying and I would prefer keyboard controls in this case. It's too easy to move the cursor out of the screen and thus lose control.

Under rating threshold (show) Got to admit i didn't find this game to my liking, the balls movements seems to predestined, and it's very hard to vlear the board. An excellent idea of allowing you too shoot all your pinballs at once though, and it has got a lot of potential if it got more thorougly worked

Under rating threshold (show) Good graphic, nice scurvy/gameboy music, a little difficult but the gameplay and style of Arkanoid still remains fresh and fun... And not even 3 stars? C'mon, people, I've seen worst games with 4 stars, just because there was some Kawai Jap characters...

Under rating threshold (show) i think the paddle should hurl the balls further. Otherways, in the late part of the game, you just patch the balls up again and again and they just don't reach anything, which kinda annoys :/

Under rating threshold (show) Play is jerky- the bumper doesn't feel like it's following the mouse very well. Or I just suck.

Under rating threshold (show) I think you need rubber balls instead of steel ones as the sever lack of bounce makes it tedious to clear a level. I can't even clear level 1 as balls just bounce in place or move WAAYYYYYY to slow.

Under rating threshold (show) the description should read "Nothing can stop your steel balls when it comes to getting booty! Arrr!" instead, just for lulz

Under rating threshold (show) Its a good game but the FPS drop kills it for me. I like the premise of game but if it doesnt run smoothly it can't be a 5/5.

Under rating threshold (show) the full screen feature does not work for me, and the paddle tends to lag a bit behind the cursor and not move smoothly, making the game harder

Under rating threshold (show) how about an upgrade system? maybe the coins that you get can be spent on 'slow motion' or a 'bigger bounce'r for a period of time....give me a reason to continue to play

Under rating threshold (show) This just happen, a ball got stuck between 2 orange bouncy thing, until the game ends, while i was juggling the other 2 balls, got insanely high score on lvl 3. Now 2nd in all time highscore. Pure luck

Under rating threshold (show) The art and music are great and I normally like arkanoid-type games, but… the player has no pretty much no control of the ball here. The speed is too damn hectic for such a small screen estate. And I'd like an option for keyboard-controls.

Under rating threshold (show) Game looks nice but it's a brick breaking game. I find it very boring overall - sorry. I'm sure some people really enjoy this kind of game but it's really not for me. 2/5 only becase brick breaking games are dull and although the graphics are nice - I do not feel compelled to play more than the 2 minutes I have already spent on it.

Under rating threshold (show) you should add bonuses to slow down the time or add an extra ball like other block breaking games

Under rating threshold (show) How can i possibly get 250k? I consider myself a decent gamer and can barely get to 150k, not losing a single ball. Related to lag, perhaps?

Under rating threshold (show) Couple things that this game needs in order for it to be enjoyable: 1. Upgrades/powerups 2. An easy way to view score needed to pass the level while playing that level. 3. Untimed mode versus timed mode, or more time per level and eventually 4. More levels. Hope you keep working on this so you can get a better rating. 2/5 right now.
