I was never very good at Breakout or Arkanoid, especially in my younger days. Thanks to years of gaming I finally have decent reflexes, so that when I go back and play those game, they seem a lot easier. Here come Shatt... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
The brick-breaking genre has been dormant of late. Dormant until now, as Shatter isn't exactly a revolution so much as a remake. This doesn't mean that it's dated, however, as the HD graphics and tight controls make it s... Read Full Review2 of 3 users found the following review helpful
