Brickles Pro is an all-new game based on the ball and paddle game called Brickles, which was first offered in 1985, shortly after the introduction of the first macintosh brickles Pro is not your typical ball and paddle game. Brickles Pro features stereo sounds, adjustable colors, adjustable ball and paddle sizes, adjustable speed and window sizes. Even the number of paddles in the game can be changed. Brickles Pro is suitable for everyone from the very youngest children learning to use a mouse, to fast-paced arcade fans. The new Brickles Pro, optimized for Mac OS X, also features randomly selected arrays of Brickles...each level has a new look and feel.
A new toolbar allows for rapid personalized game customizations, making it a snap to adjust speed, ball and paddle sizes, game colors and window sizes and shapes. Brickles Pro also allows new high scores to be published on the Brickles Pro Online Hall of Fame...compare your scores with users from around the world. The new Brickles Pro even tweets high scores.
Brickles Pro has been completely re-written from the ground up. It is now a full-fledged Universal Binary Macintosh application. It runs natively in both older PowerPC and newer Intel-based Macintoshes. Rosetta is NOT required.
Brickles Pro for Macintosh is a simple, addicting, ball and paddle game
reminiscent of the breakout game of days gone by. Brickles Pro is fun
for the whole family. It's a non-violent, colorful, sound-rich and
amazingly customizable game. Brickles Pro for the Macintosh has been
completely re-written from the ground up. It is now a full-fledged
Universal Binary Macintosh Application, meaning it will run natively in
both the older PowerPC and the newer Intel-based Macintoshes. (Rosetta
emulation is NOT required.)
One Possible Configuration of a 1-Paddle Game (shown reduced)
Brickles Pro is not a typical ball and paddle game. Brickles Pro
features adjustable colors and patterns, adjustable ball and paddle
sizes, adjustable speeds and adjustable window sizes. Such adjustments
allow the game to be played by everyone from the very youngest children,
first learning to use a mouse, to fast-paced arcade fans, from
grandparents to grandkids. Think of it as "Family Software with a
Brickles Pro can be played in a small or a large window, or at full
screen size, or in a narrow or a wide window. Brickles Pro also features
stereo sounds, and various Brickles arrays. Each level of the game can
feature a different randomly selected brickle array, or a favorite
design can be played repeatedly. The picture above shows just one of the
thousands of possible configurations of Brickles Pro.
By default, and just for fun, Brickles Pro is set to start off at a
relatively high speed. By adjusting the Speed of the game, either using
the Ball Speed Toolbar Control or the Speed Menu, you can make the game
faster or slower. If it's still too fast, check out the Brickles Pro
Preferences. The game starts out in an UNLIMITED mode, where the four
speeds are based on the fastest possible speed that your computer will
allow. But, you can also choose a THROTTLED mode of game play, where the
four speeds will likely be a lot slower. Adjust to taste!
|1-Paddle Game||2-Paddle Game||4-Paddle Game|
One feature that really sets Brickles Pro apart from all other ball and
paddle games, is that you can not only play with one bottom paddle (the
normal way), but you can also play with two or four paddles. In a game
with two paddles, the mouse controls both a top and a bottom paddle. In a
game with four paddles, there's a top, a bottom, a left and a right
paddle and NO walls. If the ball doesn't hit a paddle, the ball is lost.
This option is not for everyone, that's for sure. But, it's there when
you're ready for the supreme challenge!
One Possible Configuration of a 2-Paddle Game (shown reduced)
The picture above shows a game with 2 paddles...one on the top, and one
on the bottom. Moving the mouse left and right, moves both paddles left
and right at the same time.
One Possible Configuration of a 4-Paddle Game (shown reduced)
The picture above shows a game with 4 paddles. In a 4-paddle game, there
are no walls. The only way to keep the ball in play is with the
paddles. Miss the paddles, and the ball is gone. This is an extremely
challenging, but fun, way to play Brickles Pro. Luckily, using the Speed
Menu or Brickles Pro ToolBar, you can choose a very slow speed while
learning to control the four paddles.
