BreakQuest is a whole new approach to brick-breakers. What makes BreakQuest so special? In a word, physics! Balls of different sizes bounce off springs, dampers, and bumpers of every shape and size. Bricks hang, fall, grow, shrink, appear, vanish, interact with other bricks, and even shoot back at you!

100 levels, every one with a different theme; 10 different player ships; 9 weapons; powerups galore, good and bad. Cool sound effects and an extended sound track from the established gaming music group "Maniacs of Noise" perfectly complement vibrant visuals and create a totally immersive playing atmosphere.

The demo offers more...

Unique breakout variation.

This game has great physics and nice touches that make the game very playable. Although all levels are unique and the weapons/uupgrades are useful, it is still... just a breakout game.

This new update makes windowed mode unplayable. It comes up as a transparent window with everything stationary being invisible.

I can't comment on full screen mode because it's impossible to find the settings to put it into that mode...

Ditto, my mouse gets stuck very often, making navigating menus very tricky. Also, when playing a game, I'm constantly clicking outside of the screen (when in windowed mode) making gameplay impossible.

Does not work with Tiger (comes only in .sit format). Requirements should either list StuffIt, or not say "10.1 or later" but "10.1 to 10.3". Better, the author should stop using StuffIt.

You can get stuffit for tiger, it's just that it doesn't come preinstalled like previous versions of MacOS. http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/6326

The issue isn't about whether or not I *can* get StuffIt, but rather that I should not *have* to get StuffIt to use this software. Software riders are very much akin to adware; I simply want to try BreakQuest and not be saddled with StuffIt any more.

Whether you don't want to have to get StuffIt or not, you can't say that this program doesn't work with tiger because it is compressed using StuffIt. If you don't want to use StuffIt, that's your choice, but you have to accept the consequences.

The only "consequences" is that this software author loses out on the chance at my $20 because they're trying to force me to install some other piece of unnecessary software. StuffIt only made sense when it came with the OS. Now that Tiger doesn't include it, authors who use StuffIt end up pushing StuffIt more than their own product! I just wanted to try their game, and they've gone and turned it into a production involving compression applications. I'm not a jerk for simply asking for a Mac distribution that works on Tiger.

I feel stupid for getting into an argument about StuffIt.

True, the .sit format isn't the best. but a one-man quest to boycott StuffIt won't help very much, considering the wealth of programs compressed using it.

It is not one man that is against it.

And, if developers would stop using Stuffit as they should because it is no longer needed under OS X, then the point would be moot.

I can't move my mouse pointer once it has loaded.

Same here. I start up the game and the moment I touch the mouse, the cursor zips to the center of the screen and stays there. You can make it twitch a little if you thrash the mouse around hard enough, but that's it. Game is unplayable as a result.

That's exactly my problem, to clarify

The application started okay but wouldn't read either of the mice I tried.

G5 2X2, 20" Apple cinema screen, A4 Tech cordless-wireless mouse and a Macally optical with cord.

Fantastic implementation of the Breakout-genre game, very well done. Bright and fast, creative and well-thought out.
