For this type of brick breaking game I think it is good but it requires fast reflexes to keep the ball in the game. Six lives are not many when you don't have those reflexes. There are other modes which provide different things to break besides bricks and I'm not sure what all else because I will never get good enough to unlock them. There are stages acquired so you don't have to start from the very bottom every time but still, I can't get very far with it.
I bought this game on-line from Wal-Mart. It has wonderful and fun graphics and each game level is something unexpected. I passed most of the levels fairly easy (except the Boss game at the end of the Ghost level) so no need to be a genius to play this game.
