People say:


BreakThru is a strange puzzle game that looks very poor on the Game Boy screen, but pretty good on the Super Game Boy. It's fun to play, and it's a good way to pass time. However, the music gets irritating, and the eye strain gets horrendous. If puzzlers are your thing, BreakThru should give you a good time. I liked this game, but it wasn't able to hold my interest for very long.


Reverse Tetris: That's the way I like to think of BreakThru. Instead of adding pieces to take away lines, you're trying to take them away. It's a unique twist on the old puzzle game theme. BreakThru is not as easy as it sounds. You can mess up right at the beginning of the round. I couldn't imagine staring at those little squares on a portable Game Boy, but the game is dandy on a Super GB.


This is one of the better Tetris clones out there. But even though it looks like Tetris, it doesn't play like it. BreakThru is original enough on its own. The idea of the game is nice. Too bad I can't say the same for the graphics and sound Oh, how annoying! Well, it IS the Game Boy. Sometimes, it's very difficult to make out the different tiles. Anyway, BreakThru won't disappoint puzzle fans.


This is an interesting puzzle game that may be just what you need on a long trip. I'd suggest it for puzzle fans--action seekers may get bored too quickly. Along the same lines of Tetris, this is one of those games that can get very addicting once you get into it The graphics and sounds are rather simple even for the Game Boy. Not everyone's bag, but for hardcore puzzle players, it's worth a try.

Take a look at this, Tetris lovers! The creator of Tetris, Alexey Pajitnov, introduces BreakThru. Instead of building a wall, in this game you bring one down. Travel around the world knocking down walls with your--sledge and a little bit of help from some explosives. Sound easy? Don't be surprised if there are some obstacles to contend with in this game!

BreakThru offers many options. In a dual competition against an opponent, use all of your speed to knock your wall down first before time runs out. The more walls you knock down, the harder the game gets. Plan your moves carefully and quickly to assure victory!

Use the missiles to your advantage. They take out everything except rocks. Set them off in places that you can't reach.
