The iPhone and iPad Thursday Find - Breakforcist

By , on March 2, 2017

How it is Thursday already? Are the clocks broken? Has someone been fiddling around with time in order to confuse and disorientate me? I hope not, because that would be really mean, and I'm not as bad as I sometimes pretend to be.

Anyway, Thursday Find time. This week we've got a rehash(brown)ing of an arcade classic. It's got a breakfast twist though. And some ghosts. And giant pancakes. And all of those things are great. Breakfast food is the best food.

But what is it? Why it's Breakforcist. And if you click on the emboldened name of the game just below this paragraph, you'll slide over to the App Store where you can grab it. And you should. So there.

Breakforcist - £2.99 / $2.99

Imagine if Breakout was essentially made of puns, madness, and waffles. If you're imagining that, well done. Now you're about 40% of the way towards understanding what Breakforcist is all about.

You're controlling a paddle at the bottom of the screen, using it to twonk a ball into a selection of breakfast treats. Smash all the waffles, eggs, and other items on a stage and you'll move on to the next.

You can't die, but you can lose your ball. Lose your ball and the pile of blocks you're trying to smash shuffles closer to a line near your paddle. If it reaches that line, it's game over.

There are bolts of lightning to fire, giant pancakes to set on fire, and all manner of other power-ups to unlock and use.

And it's all majestically silly. It wobbles along at a frantic pace, and you'll smugly watch your combo score creep up as rashers of bacon spew out of your food-infused bat.

This is arcade gaming done right, with a focus on challenges and adding something new to the genre. Plus it's got so many puns that you're going to be giggling before you've even downloaded it.
