Anyone who enjoyed old block-breaking games like Arkanoid or current retreads like Brickbreaker, will enjoy JET BALL. It's the same basic concept -- you slide your shelf back and forth at the bottom of the screen to bounce balls upward and shatter the bricks above -- but the "blocks" are often round, and many of them are in motion. The kinetic structures that must be broken up keep you constantly on your toes. And the power-ups are fun, exciting additions, including a magnet that allows you to grip the ball until you want to release it. Jet Ball feels like a real evolution in the genre.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
