Another Breakout clone with a twist.
In fact this is a Breakout clone mixed with Space Invaders.
You control a tank with shooting powers and the ability to bounce a ball. There is no further need in explaining the game, because everyone knows at least one version either of Breakout or Space Invaders.
The game is fairly addictive, like all games of this two genres usually are, it plays well, it's fun, but could have been a little better done, the controls for instance, sometimes seem slightly stuck or maybe the movement is just not fast enough, either way it's a rather enjoyable breakout game with a shoot 'em up element to it.
