Shattered is back and I couldn’t be happier. I first played the game back on the PlayStation 3 and it was actually one of the first games I reviewed. For this who don’t know, Shatter is a brick-breaking game that mixes it up by allowing you to blow or/and suck air to adjust how the balls move, you can also move the locks around with the vacuum controls. What you land up getting is unique gameplay every time and as you unlock new modes and areas, more block types appear like fan-powered blocks or explosive squares. Boss battles don’t actually suck and stick to the formula, collect shards from blocks so you can use your powerful gun ability but apart from that, it’s all down to you. I like how it still feels solid, I do feel like the areas have too many levels and the last brick conundrum is still not a guaranteed fix but it does maintain everything that made it great before. Everyone likes going back to an old familiar game and it is no different here.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
