"I'll tell you right now, this is the best Breakout game I've ever played (and I've played them all)." - John Becker, PPC Louisville Editor
"The sophisticated bonus system adds a great long term motivation to this game which justifies 150 levels." - Jorlin, First Loox Reviewer and Moderator
"True arkanoid fans will embrace this game as being easily one of the better titles available." - Russell Carroll, Game Tunnel Webmaster
The goal is simple. Destroy all of the bricks in each level to proceed to the next level. Along the way you will receive many different power items to help you. Acky's XP Breakout is quite different than most games in the ball and paddle genre, instead of having a set number of balls, you have two resources which are needed to create a ball, and this resource is called ether. Ether comes in two colors red and blue, both of which are needed to form a ball. While playing you will see each kind of ether drop and if you catch it with your space pad your ether tanks will fill up, allowing you to create more balls.
The game also features several bonuses for doing different things. Gaining bonuses are optional but you are encouraged to do so because they are needed to unlock the XP mode, a special mode where you get super powers. After you complete a level you get a bronze, silver, or gold trophy. There is also a ranking system which is based on how many trophies you have collected and how many bonuses you have obtained.
"This game has to be the most developed breakout clone I've ever seen, and I've played more than my share of breakout clones." - Allen Gall, PPC Magazine Games Editor
