Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Amazing Breaker is one of the many "aim and shoot" games that have become popular since Angry Birds. This game, however, has many more options and interesting elements of play than Angry Birds -- but it's also a little scarier and more violent. Different images of a wide variety of things -- from roses to houses and jack-o-lanterns -- appear on the screen; players aim "bombs" and blast away at them until they're at least 90 percent gone to move onto the next level. While the differing actions of the four bombs are unique and engaging (Spike: aim and shoot; Ghost: rub screen to control; Helicopter: tap to deploy crystals; Split: splits into three crystals), the bombs are pretty realistic and the images, sounds, and background music can be sort of surreal and spooky.

What Kids Can Learn
Amazing Breaker wasn't created with educational intent, and we don't recommend it for learning.
Is it any good?
Depending upon the age of the player and their interest in aim and shoot-style games, AMAZING BREAKER could be a huge hit or, quite literally, a scary bomb. The explosions that happen when players hit the targets correctly with the bombs are really realistic in both appearance and sound. Some of the targets, such as a ghost and a jack-o-lantern, are spooky enough that some younger players may shy away from the game for those images alone. But for older players or kids who aren't spooked easily, the 80 levels of play and the unique actions of the four bombs will likely be addictive fun, much more so than most Angry Birds-like games.
