BreakQuest: Extra Evolution, a Breakout clone, is a PlayStation Minis game from Beatshapers (the same wonderful people who brought us WizOrb, reviewed here). It’s the successor to the original 2004 Break Quest game from Nurium Games (also ported to PSP by Beatshapers). I took up my handy bat and ball to see what it was all about.
Panda Bounce (or Boong Boong Panda) is a Breakout-type game where you need to collect the indicated quantities of fruit by bouncing a Panda bear around the level. You don’t directly control the Panda, rather the cute chipmunks that man the trampoline on the ground.
Click the Panda to get it on the trampoline, click again to launch it, and the move the mouse to position the trampoline. Don’t let the Panda touch the ground, oh and beware the ninjas.
Play Panda Bounce at Hangame.

Breakout is an arcade classic that was first introduced in 1976, and pretty is boring and dated these days. But not any more.
Yoshio Ishii, of Nekogames, has reinvented the classic in his latest game, Redesigning Breakout. It uses the same basic form of Breakout gameplay, but every time the ball hits the paddle, it’s sent off at super-fast speeds, and will return to a slower velocity if you let it hit the bottom.
