If you have played Balls DX, you'll feel at home here. If you did not, well, here is your chance to break bricks by bouncing a ball at them! The developer Smobile has made a ton of these games, all titled "Something" Break, and they are all basically reskins of the same game, with some minor differences in gameplay and trophies. There is also a "Head to Head" version of every game wherein you face the CPU and try to complete the level first.

The games Independence Break, Christmas Break, and Saint Patrick's Day Break can all be bought in a bundle along with their Head to Head counterparts for a reduced price.


Step 0 - Introductions

Before you start playing, check out the Introductions section in the Main Menu. It will tell you what the power-ups looks like.

Step 1 - Complete the first 3 levels

You need to play 3 of the 30 levels of the game. While playing, remember to look out for the coin drops. This will also net you the majority depending on power-up luck. Every level is also a checkpoint, so if you die, you can restart from the same level. The levels are represented by different characters. The first character is Level 1 and so on.

By the end of this step, you will have earned:

38 trophies ( 26  )

  • Collected all the trophies in the game.

    Congratulations on your new platinum.
  • Completed a level.

    Simply complete any level.
  • Completed a level quickly.

    As the trophy states, you'll need to complete any level in a short amount of time. Aim to get a fireball or a laser power-up at the start of a level, as with either of these, you shouldn't have a problem finishing quickly.
  • Completed a level slowly.

    Simply take a long time to complete a level.
  • Defeated an Elf mini boss.

    Simply kill the Elf mini boss when it appears. It will take a couple of hits.
  • Defeated a Santa mini boss.

    Simply kill the Santa mini boss when it appears. It will take a couple of hits.
  • Defeated a Snowman mini boss.

    Simply kill the Snowman mini boss when it appears. It will take a couple of hits.
  • Hit ball 3 times in turbo paddle mode without losing life.

    Holding r2.png will put you into Turbo Mode, which makes you move faster. While holding r2.png, you'll need to bounce the ball on the paddle 3 times without losing the ball or getting hit by a boss. If you have multiple balls, it's fine to lose the extra balls as long as you still have one in play.
  • Caught ball 3 times with sticky paddle without losing life.

    The sticky power-up makes it so the ball sticks to the paddle. You'll need to catch a ball 3 times that way without losing a life. The power-up only lasts a little while, so try to aim at low-hanging bricks for faster rebounds.
  • Hit ball 3 times with shield (bottom wall) without losing life.

    The shield power-up will put a wall at the bottom of the screen, preventing the ball from going out of bounds. After picking up the shield, don't hit the ball with the paddle; instead let it hit the bottom wall. After bouncing 3 times, you'll get the trophy.
  • Survived a mini boss attack through invincible paddle.

    While facing any mini-boss, pick up an Invincible power-up and once it's active, simply let that mini-boss hit you. Once you're hit once, you'll get this trophy.
  • Destroyed 3 items with slow ball without losing life.

    The Slow Ball power-up sets the ball speed to 0,5. While the ball is slowed, you just need to break 3 bricks.
  • Collected a laser power up.

    Simply collect the Laser power-up once.
  • Collected a wide paddle power up.

    Simply collect the Wide Paddle power-up once.
  • Collected a fireball power up.

    Simply collect the Fireball power-up once.
  • Collected a 3-ball power up.

    Simply collect the 3-Ball power-up once.
  • Destroyed 5 items with laser without losing life.

    After picking up a Magic Missile power-up, press circle.png to fire. Now break 5 bricks without losing a life and the trophy is yours.
  • Destroyed 5 items with fireball without losing life.

    The Fireball will break all bricks in one hit and not bounce on them, so breaking 5 won't be hard.
  • Destroyed 3 Jingle bells in a level.

    The Jingle bells can only be destroyed by a power-up, such as the Fireball, Magic Missile, or Bomb. There are Jingle bells on level 3.
  • Collected a combo of 3 or more power ups.

    To combo the power-ups you'll need to collect them in rapid succession. This is easily achieved on a level with many power-ups, if you keep resetting until you get an early Fireball or Laser.
  • Collected all powers ups and collectibles in level.

    Collect all the power-ups and coins that drop in a single level without missing any and you will get this trophy.
  • Completed a level without collecting any power ups.

    Simply avoid picking up any power-ups that drop while clearing the level. I recommend doing an earlier level as you begin with more lives, so you can afford to die a few times if the need arises.
  • Survived all mini boss attacks in a level.

    Don't get hit by any mini boss attacks while clearing a level. 
  • Completed a level with 7 lives remaining.

    You just have to complete any level with 7 lives. You will start with a lot of lives on the earlier levels so as long as you don't die too much, this won't be an issue. You also get extra lives at certain point thresholds.
  • Scored 30000 points in a level.

    See 40K points scored trophy_silver.png for more information.
  • Earned total 3 stars in game.

    See 7 stars earned trophy_gold.png for more information.
  • Collected total 3 coins in game.

    See 7 coins collected trophy_gold.png for more information.
  • Destroyed items at 5x speed.

    High speed refers to the ball's speed, which will keep increasing as long as the ball is kept in play. When the ball reaches 5x speed and breaks a brick, the trophy will unlock.
  • Completed a level without losing life.

    Just complete one level without letting the ball fall out of bounds or get hit by a mini boss. If you get an early Laser power-up, this is a cakewalk.
  • Scored 40000 points in a level.

    This trophy requires you to get a score of 40k+ in a single level. You get extra points for rapid clearing and for any remaining lives you have. The Coin power up also gives you extra score points, so be sure to collect them if they drop. Do note that the score trophies don't stack and the 30k one only unlocks if you get a score between 30 and 40k.
  • Completed levels with 2 different characters in game.

    Complete any 2 different levels.
  • Earned total 5 stars in game.

    See 7 stars earned trophy_gold.png for more information.
  • Collected total 5 coins in game.

    See 7 coins collected trophy_gold.png for more information.
  • Completed a level with moving items.

    Level 2 has moving bricks so you should get this trophy by completing it.
  • Completed a level with stationary mini bosses.

    Level 5 has a stationary mini-boss so complete that level to get this trophy.
  • Earned total 7 stars in game.

    You can get a maximum of 3 stars on every level, making 90 stars in total. To get 3 stars on a level it needs to be beaten quick and without losing too many lives. The easiest way is to reset the level in order to get an early Fireball or Laser power-up, then quickly clearing the level. Of course since you only need 7 out of 90 stars, you don't need to try for 3 stars if you don't want to and simply play a few extra levels. 
  • Collected total 7 coins in game.

    The coins drop the same way as power-ups. Simply collect a total of 7 Coin power-ups.
  • Completed levels with 3 different characters in game.

    Complete 3 different levels.
