            Fun for the entire family
            I, too, am a sucker for breakout games and this
            one is just great. Even my wife loves it. When my
            daughter got a little bored one day I pointed her
            at the editor for creating new levels, and she's
            now merrily creating new levels. Who says
            education can't be fun :)? Thanks for a very
            creative piece of programming.

            much fun!
            I'm always a sucker for breakout type games, and I have to say this particular version is a lot of fun. :) The sound seems to be a bit out of sync, but that's fine by me, I just play with the sound turned down. The variety of the various 'bonus gifts' that drift down to you makes it a lot of fun.
