Free Block Breaker Game For Windows 8: BreakO

BreakO is a free Windows 8/8.1 game that is a take on the classic platform block breaker game. In this game, you have to control the paddle (or platform) at the bottom of the screen using your mouse and use it to guide the bouncing ball on it so that the ball does not fall off from the platform. The ball bounces on the platform and hits the blocks at the top of the screen, thereby destroying them. In the game, you will also get certain power ups for your ball that turn it to a fireball, large ball, etc. Overall, the game plays pretty smooth on Windows 8 devices.

BreakO is available for free from the Windows App Store.

The above screen is the menu screen of BreakO. You can click on the Play button in the above screenshot to get to the gameplay screen. Once you have clicked on the Play button in the above screen, you will be presented with a screen which looks like the below screenshot.

BreakO Start the game

In the above screen, you can use the mouse left click to start the game. Once the game has started, the ball will fly up and hit the blocks above. You have to control the paddle at the bottom of the screen using your mouse so that when the ball strikes the blocks above and comes down again, it lands on the paddle. The game ends when you have destroyed all the blocks, or when your ball misses the paddle and falls off. The gameplay looks like the below screenshot.

BreakO gameplay

The gameplay is pretty smooth to say the least, and the paddle is pretty responsive to mouse movements. In fact, it’s so responsive that you can even play it easily using the trackpad on your  laptop, and don’t need to connect an external mouse at all! Throughout the game, you will also get certain powerups for your paddle which fall from the top. You can see a powerup falling from the top of the screen in the above screenshot. Once the powerups have been engaged, your gameplay becomes much more gripping and entertaining. The below screenshot demonstrates the gameplay with powerups engaged.

BreakO powerups

As you can see above, I have one fire ball, and two additional balls because of the powerups. You can also see one giant ball powerup falling from the top in the above screenshot. Once the game gets over, you can press the R key on your keyboard to restart the game.

Overall, the gameplay is pretty smooth and engaging, and is sure to keep you hooked for a long time. This game reminds me of the old classic DX Ball, as it mimics the functionality of that game to a great extent!

The Verdict…

BreakO is a great game to have on your Windows 8 device if you want to pass some time or simply while away your free time. The gameplay is smooth, and the gripping background score and cool graphics make the game much better to play! Overall this game is a great game to have on your device, and it surely deserves a 3.5 out of 5.

Get BreakO.
