Shadow Break

Shadow Break is a breakout/platformer hybrid with a ninja theme. Destroy the bricks with your ball and kill the enemies with your sword.

Controls: Z = attack / X = jump / C = dash / A = shield against projectiles + ball freeze / hold Z and press C = flame dash (shield and flame dash requires ninjitsu power). The game was also featured on TIGSource, owVideogames and Idealsoft Blog


Wizorb is an adventurous fantasy themed take on the breakout formula with RPG elements and glorious pixel art. It is without a doubt one of the best breakout games ever. After 2 years of development the developers Tribute Games created indeed an outstanding tribute to classic gameplay. Highly recommended!

The game is available on Steam and various other sites (but can also be purchased from the developers directly).

Moreover here is a nice article about Delicious Block-Breaking Games by Jonathan Lavigne (one of the creators of Wizorb who also developed the action platformer Ninja Senki). The fantastic illustration above was created by Michael Brennan.
