steam_ann_T8

Today we’re proud to announce the release of Theme 8 – The Throne Room. In this theme you work your way back into the castle in your quest to defeat the Evil Wizard and his wicked minion. You will lay witness to the messiest kitchen ever seen, the strangest trophy room in the land, and the wicked “Throne of Canes” before confronting the Wizard himself.

Theme 8 adds 6 new levels to the game and a new boss brick – The Fog Brick. When hit, the Fog Brick completely obscures your view of the entire table. Only a small patch of clearing remains around the ball as it moves about. Can you see in the dark? You will have to in order to survive this new threat brought upon by the Evil Wizard and his mischievous Minion.

Theme 8 also includes the last set of original levels bringing the total number of levels in the game up to 48! But don’t worry, we’re far from finished. We’re currently hard at work on our final polish which will bring a huge number of changes and updates to the game. Please keep us up to date with your comments and suggestions in our forums. We look forward to hearing from you. Thanks for playing and enjoy the new levels!

Today we’re proud to announce the release of Theme 7 – The Ice Cave! In this theme you work your way deep into a mysterious ice cave. What will you discover inside? All of this leads to a deadly confrontation with a majestic ice dragon!

Theme 7 includes an all new danger – the Frost Brick! Upon being hit, the frost brick immediately freezes nearby bricks and removes them from the play area – they cannot be shattered, or bounced off of for a limited time. All bricks can be affected by the frost bricks too – even iron bricks so avoid them at all costs!

Theme 7 includes some of our most challenging levels to date. It also brings our total level count up to 42! We have just one more theme to go. We’ll be announcing our future plans with the game in the coming weeks. In the meantime we hope you enjoy the latest set of levels and look forward to your comments in our forums.
