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, where you face the CPU and try to complete the level first. The games Independence, Christmas and Saint Patrick's Day break can 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 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 . 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 character. The first character is level one and so on.

38 trophies ( 26  )

  • Collected all the trophies in the game.

    Congratulations on your new Platinum.
  • Completed a level quickly.

    As the trophy states you'll need to complete a level in a short amount of time. Aim to get a fireball or a laser power-up at the start of a level. With either of these there should not be a problem finishing quickly.
  • Completed a level slowly.

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

    Simply kill the mini boss when it appears. It will take a couple of hits.
  • Defeated a M&K mini boss.

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

    Simply kill the 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 and make you move faster. While holding r2.png you need to bounce the ball of the paddle 3 times without losing the ball or getting hit by a boss. If you have multiple ball 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 need to catch a ball 3 times 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.

    After picking up the invincible power up, let a boss hit you.
  • 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 this slow you 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 magic missile 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 items with a bomb.

    The bomb power-up gives you 3 bombs that can be aimed with the rs.png and fired with r1.png. The bomb will then explode in a 3x3 grid so aim at least 3 bricks then fire away.
  • Destroyed 3 Gold Stars in a level.

    The Gold Stars can only be destroyed by a power up, such as the fireball, magic missile or bomb. There are golden stars 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 level without missing any.
  • Completed a level without collecting any power ups.

    Simply avoid any power ups that drop while clearing the level. I recommend doing an earlier level as you start 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 will start with a lot of lives on the earlier levels so as long as you don't die to much this won't be an issue. You also get extra lives at certain point thresholds.
  • Scored 30000 points in a level.

  • Earned total 3 stars in game.

  • Collected total 3 coins in game.

  • Destroyed objects at 5x speed.

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

    Don't let the ball fall out of bounds or get hit by a mini boss. If you get an early laser this is a cakewalk.
  • Scored 40000 points in a level.

    You get extra points for rapid clearing and for any remaining lives you have. You can't miss this as you go for the star trophies. 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.

    Simply complete 2 different levels.
  • Earned total 5 stars in game.

  • Collected total 5 coins in game.

  • Completed a level with moving items.

    This trophy will pop during the second level, because it has moving bricks.
  • Completed a level with stationary mini bosses.

    This trophy will pop during the fifth level, because that has a stationary mini boss.
  • 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 to 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.
  • Completed levels with 3 different characters in game.

    Simply complete 3 different levels.
