Wake And Game Review of BreakFree
Release date: When it's done
Game Description
What do you get when you combine a Paddle game like Arkanoid and a 3D Shooter game like Doom? You get Breakfree, a 3D Paddle game where you 'shoot' fireballs against walls similar to your average Paddle game but with a 1st Person Perspective approach.

The object of the game is to "break free", of which is done by destroying the breakable walls with the fireballs. The fireballs will bounce back to you, of which you will bounce them back to the walls using your (invisible) paddle in front of you. Certain (red brick) walls, have bonuses that you have to 'catch' after you destroy them with your fireball. When you lose all your fireballs it's game over.

History of The Game
This game was created back in 1995, the game took the development team 18 months to complete. It was developed by my uncle Matt Brooks which you will see his name in the opening credits. I am Sammy Brooks, I have been working on the game for a couple of months and it has been a challenge working on it. But the end result is awesome.

I contacted my uncle Matt Brooks about this game around the time Steam Greenlight came out and asked him to get in contact with the original development team to ask them if I can work on the game to get it ready to give to the world again. He agreed and 2 months later I got the "Greenlight" from the development team to work on the game again. They then sent me the games coding and gave me the rights to make it work on today's systems and redistribute it back to the world.

This game has 50+ levels in it which have different patterns and challenges to conquer. It can be a challenge for the hardcore gamers and also be a quick pick me up for casual gamers. You have a choice to play this game with ether the mouse and keyboard or just the mouse alone.

Breakout + Wolf3D? TAKE ALL MY MONEY!

If you're going for an innovation on a retro idea, the least you could do is pretty it up with some modern graphics as well...

Pretty funny stuff: First person view "breakout" game.

Could`ve done with a nicer engine, but meh, gotta leave something for a possible sequel. xD

Voted! It's cool that you have brought back a 90's game that was scrapped and fixed it up and released it!
