Asteroids has always been a little too frenzied for me—there's nowhere to hide!—and Breakout, Blackberry classic though it may be, can get a little bit tedious. Breakeroids, a Frankenstein-style combination of the two, strikes a highly playable, deliciously neon balance.
Breakeroids, $2, iPhone The top half's asteroids, the bottom half's breakout. That's pretty much all there is to it. It works on the iPhone and the iPad
People who like Breakout; people who like Asteroids; people who like neon.
The neon aesthetic looks great; the gameplay strikes a nice balance between the this-is-gonna-make-me-sweat-on-the-subway intensity of Asteroids and the at-least-I'm-not-just-looking-at-people-on-the-subway tedium of Breakout.
Seems like more of a $1 game, though that's just my opinion. Moving the game elements at the bottom of the screen up a bit would be nice, keeping the thumb from obscuring the paddle.
