One More Brick was suggested to me by a YouTube viewer. I have quite a collection of these almost by accident. I am starting to think this series will be a good example of game design progression within a genre.
This game really impressed me for the polish and attention to detail across the board.
The power-ups and randomizer in the game are really well done. Watch the video for my full breakdown.
Clear the level? Get a checkpoint
This is honestly the coolest feature. I have said it in multiple reviews of these games. When a player clears the entire screen, give them a payoff! It is hard to do, and should be a big deal.
One More Brick does this really well. They give you a checkpoint in the game. Your next play will start at that level! How cool is that? Once you have started at that level the checkpoint is cleared, but this is a HUGE encouragement for the player to try to clear the level.
