Brick Breakers, Geometry in Action

A brick-breaker style game was the first video game I played when I was a young lad in the 70's. With a small black controller and a single circular control, I learned and played Pong for hours. You know, the game where you're the little paddle and you need to knock a 'ball' across the screen and your opponent (or the machine) bounces it back? Yeah, you know the one. Go 1970's!

Brick breakers are some of the oldest video games around.  A brick-breaker style game was the first video game I played when I was a young lad in the 70's.  With a small black controller and a single circular control, I learned and played Pong for hours.  You know, the game where you're the little paddle and you need to knock a 'ball' across the screen and your opponent (or the machine) bounces it back?  Yeah, you know the one. Go 1970's!

Brick Breakers are similar except that your 'paddle' moves horizontally across the screen and the 'ball' bounces up and down, bumping into and 'breaking' a stack of virtual bricks at the top of the screen.  iPad brings Brick Breakers back to the world!  

I remember spending hours (and quite a few quarters) on Arkanoid in the local Comic Book shop (okay, maybe I was a geek way back then too!), and finally beating it!!  Talk about accomplishment... maybe that's why we're techies, after all!  Sarcasm aside, Brick Breakers are fun. They test your hand-eye coordination and definitely work that part of your brain that focuses on Geometry and 'seeing' angles in space.  Fun and a good brain-eye workout!
