This review of Breakfinity contains the following information:
This is an endless runner style game.
Based on the classic game Breakout, in Breakfinity the player must move a small platform back and forth across the screen so that the ball bounces between the platform and the descending blocks.
The game opens with a ball resting on a small platform at the base of the screen while an arrangement of blocks is at the top of the screen. Once the player taps the screen to begin, the ball will bounce up towards the blocks, hit them and bounce back down. The player must then keep the ball on screen by sliding the platform with their finger back and forth across the screen until the ball bounces off the platform and back up towards the blocks.
The blocks are descending from the top of the screen and the aim of the game is to hit the ball into the blocks so that they break. The player must continue hitting the blocks until either all the blocks are gone or a gap in the blocks is formed so that the ball can pass on through to the next level of blocks. Each block you hit gives you one point. This endless runner style only ends when the ball drops below the platform.
Each level brings a new formation of blocks which descend faster, making it more difficult. Certain blocks will have special powers after you hit them. S blocks will slow the ball and the descending blocks down, E blocks lengthen the platform and L block create lasers (see Violence). There is also a diamond block which takes several hits before it breaks apart, however once it does break the player receives a diamond. These diamonds can be exchanged for extra balls. You can also buy diamonds with real money (see In App Purchasing)
Yes: The player can use real money to buy diamonds. Prices range from 25 diamonds for $1.29 to 1000 diamonds for $12.99. The player can then use diamonds to buy more balls or other items within the game.
The game connects to OpenFeint if you are playing on an android or Game Centre if you are playing on an apple product. These platforms are online communities where you can share your scores and connect to your Facebook page. However, you can choose to restrict OpenFeint or Game Centre on your device. Players can also watch videos or share their scores on twitter to earn free items.
