The good news is this game can be played in PC Firefox with the IE Tab extension.
Smokymonkeys Breakout is a DHTML game that features 50 different stages composed of formidable formations of various brick types: Black bricks that are imperviously permanent; grey bricks that vanish with a single hit; yellow bricks that change to grey bricks when hit; and red bricks that change to yellow. Eliminate all non-permanent bricks to make it to the next stage.
The game is not easy as the ball travels at a breakneck pace. Excercise caution when starting a new ball, as it will travel downward at an unknown angle and at full speed. You begin with just three (3) balls and earn an extra-ball every 3,000 points. Can you make it through all 50 levels? I should say not.
Beautiful, but without sound; classic gameplay with a facelift of the ancient Orient. Click.
