Game #3803
Action   Breakout variant

Burokuzu is a great freeware Breakout clone from Japan. The usual bounce-the-ball-off-the-paddle action is livened up by a number of interesting innovations. My favorite one is that you can select which power-up you want to use next - each block you destroy increases the length of that power-up's bar. When the bar is full, you can activate the power-up on the main screen. These power-ups range from the mundane such as multiple balls, to the creative such as "ball-on-a-string" power-up: a thin thread that binds your ball to the paddle and makes it impossible to miss. The ball bounces a little too slowly for my taste, but the neat power-ups make the game quite enjoyable. Worth a look for all Breakout fans who want something a little different.
