Nervous Brickdown review

A paddle, a ball, and some bricks - so why does this game feel so fresh and unique?

From there, Nervous Brickdown’s 135+ levels guide you on a rollercoaster ride through a double-fistful of themed worlds (10 altogether), each of which has a look and style all its own. There’s a Lion King-colorful jungle world in which the ball constantly switches to match the color of the brick it just hit, and you have to tap colored bumpers to make your paddle the same hue. There’s a techno-pumping, speed freak-y wireframe world in which your ball is a brick-shattering laser, eventually culminating in a Death Star trench-style boss battle.
