Reaxxion - a fully-recharged arkanoid
As stats prove, a lot of people, who don't even consider themselves gamers, at list once a life have tried playing arkanoid or tetris. Such type of games gives us what we want in definite moment: helps to relax and drop off or concentrate and solve some problems. Reaxxion is undeniably this sort of game.
The main idea is to break all bricks with the help of metallic ball. But be very careful and don't allow your ball to reach the bottom line of the playfield - otherwise you'll lose.
The steel ball, beaten off with a metallic paddle, crashes bricks and is bounced from various walls and tiles.
You should be rather quick and attentive to catch and bounce your ball with the paddle in time.
The paddle can be enlarged in size by metallic ballets, falling from some of the bricks you hit. Also your steel ball may be absorbed into the paddle in some critical moments to make it longer.
At times your paddle can become too big and will shoot multiple balls uncontrollably.
The game-play can become extremely addictive and challenging if you find secret spheres (five in each level) and disclose various secret levels (25).
The task and conditions in these mysterious levels differ a little from the rest.
You'll have less time (only 60 seconds) and more complex objects to manage. There you'll be able to gain additional score and points.
But in any case you are given detailed hints and instructions before and during each game level.
Reaction is a required quality for gamers not to lose the multiple power-ups of Reaxxion.
You can complete the level perfectly with the help of:
Magneto Ball - makes all balls to move in the same direction;
Lightning Ball - destroys everything around it with an electric discharge;
Spike Ball - makes a bomb from your ball;
Ice Ball - frozen the nearby bricks and helps to destroy them quicker and many others.
Power-ups will be activated when your ball is absorbed by the left upper tube.
Besides, Reaxxion contains various other nuances and challenging obstacles. So it's your turn to explore some more peculiarities of this game.
All the more every level features a unique background and high quality graphics.
One level room resembles an interior of a hi-tech plant while another one can astonish with a giant whale or another animated creature...
And want it or not, Reaxxion is a rare game, since it features only one mode of play, which allows a player to concentrate on the very heart of brick-busting, instead of distracting players with numerous modes.
