Big News… Shatter!

Shatter is a retro-inspired brick-breaking game that merges familiar action with unique twists and a modern crafted production approach. Innovative controls, physics effects, power-ups, special attacks, and boss battles which combine to provide an experience that is always interactive.

Gameplay
If you ever played games like Breakout, Arkanoid or other Brick breakers, you have the basics of Shatter. The game revolves around moving a paddle back and forth to break bricks and make your escape.

What makes this game a bit different is the ability to blow or suck. The paddle can blow air at the ball in order to push it towards the blocks, or pull it towards the paddle via sucking the air in. The game also features various bosses that slow down your escape.

Music
The game has a very awesome and well composed soundtrack. It fits the game well and makes everything fall into place properly. It really helps set the atmosphere.

Bugs
I actually had fun with this one. First, the game crashed my graphics driver, forcing a reboot. Then I crashed the game’s graphics. It turns out that the MESA driver doesn’t do well with too much on the screen. It is seriously game breaking, but not as bad as the screenshot I’ll post. My video driver somehow broke the game’s shaders.

Overall, I think Shatter deserves a toast rating. It’s actually a pretty bland game in the long run and doesn’t merit a large amount of replay, but the bosses are creative, and the soundtrack is wonderful. If you like break out, you should grab this one.
