Description of Blockbuster

Impact! is a quite good Breakout clone by Audiogenic with simple graphics but they do their job quite well. The bonus-system works a bit different to the usual Arkanoid way, in that you pick up an "extra-increaser" item and click the mouse button, when you want to activate one - as seen in the arcade shoot'em up Nemesis. I remember this game as being one of those two or three games a year that were reviewed for the IBM-PC back then in my favorite computer games magazine ASM.

Overall a decent game and one of the better Breakout clones, but very tough in difficulty. Runs like a dream even on a Pentium II/450 under Windows 98.

Had this back in the day for the C64. Like the description above says, it was a fun breakout game, similar in feeling to Arkanoid.
