Oufff - I am finally through. One of the best games I have ever played and replayed. One thing I would like to add would be a tip button - or the tips should be shown faster (eg after 15 seconds?). Otherwise, loosing time would be too long. A really excellent game!!!

This is a goodie! At first I thought it was too easy, but later had NO such complaint. Would be nice to have a couple of power-ups to add a little more strategy.

Game DL fine on my Win7/64bit fine. I have played for a little while and have to agree with some of the others in that the instructions leave a little to be desired. The graphics are good. It's a different type of match 3, which is enjoyable although difficult in that it makes you think ahead. Thanks to Playrix and GGAOTD for another good game.

Great game had it for years, would be nice to see an updated version. Runs fine on Win 7 64 Toshiba LT but wondering if anyone to bump full screen to fit entire widescreen monitor. Game does " stretch" when played on a Win 7 64 desktop. In other words, there is no setting in options for resolution. Any tips? Thnx

Great game. Being able to shoot from all four sides makes it very different from other brick shooter games I've seen. Why does it start in the middle? I can't play first two stages Khufu and Djozer. Suggestion: Add ability to turn music OFF (not just low).


..........................Moderator comment............................

Because the game comes pre-loaded with a profile. Restart and select a new profile to start the game from the beginning. This was covered earlier within the comments section above.

Re-installed this lovely little strategy game. Thank You for the Chess game info, Brick shooter to me is like a 2D version of that Circus pomche (3D) strategy puzzler, both addictive but brickshooter more relaxed of the 3.

Mod - re: your comment to mine @ #43

I am very appreciative of the free games. All I was doing was pointing out that #30 said he received the game May 22, 2012 (his date 22-05-2012). So somehow he knows this will be given away in the future. If so, that is fine because not everyone will get it today and free is the best price. Thanks for all you guys do here and at GOTD!

............................Moderator comment.....................

that's true wiggumc. Sorry if I appeared to be coming over a little negative. I didn't mean to. I'd just posted the very same comment to a previous poster and you basically said something very similar so was trying to point out that its not that easy to get free games that aren't ad supported.

DLed, installed just fine. Played 1st level. STALLED when to score ok click screen. No mouse, no windows, not able to alt+ctl+del.
Rebooted. Played with nothing else running. Did not have my name saved (duh - didn't finish correctly) Played again stalls system at score screen. Win 7 Asus Eee Netbook.



.......................Moderator comment.........................

What are the specs of your netbook? (apart from the fact it has win 7? lso try changing your screen res if possible. This is an old game, released several years ago before netbooks were available, so maybe its incompatible. don't kow as I've never owned a net book. (Probably never will either)

although it's activated, i can not install the game, because "the file is in use of another process" - does anybody have a hint?

.......................Moderator Comment......................

Try rebooting your computer. If that doesn't work, check what programs are running in the background and turn off those that you know are not needed as there may be a conflict with something (Game Booster is a useful free program that will automatically turn off all unecessary windows proframs and you can add others to the mix via a configuration screen. Once done you can then switch everything back on via a single button.

you can download Game Booster from IOBit:

http://www.iobit.com/gamebooster.html

Try clearing out your internet cache and refresh the page (F5). and of all else fails reboot your modem and/or router. Please do let me know if any one of these helps. If not I'll try and search my brain and maybe the internet for more answers for you. :)

What in the heck is the version number of this game??? They should put the version number of the game on the Giveaway page too.




..........................Moderator comment....................




If you downloaded this last time it was given away then you don't need to do it again. I neglected to remove the section were it says this is a newer version. If you downloaded it back in 2010, then it's worth downloading again.

Reply   |   Comment by Pippi  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

To whoever it was that said they got stuck right away, you're not alone. I had show hints turned on in options but got none and it took a while to figure out even a little bit of strategy. Usually a game starts out slow, showing something different at each step, but I felt like this one jumped in at a higher level and I even took a moment to back out to see if I'd chosen something wrong.

That said, it's definitely addictive. I lost track of time for the little bit I did play. I enjoy games like this, where playing can be relaxing. It requires me to think enough to pull my mind away from other things, but doesn't overload it.

It would be nice to have a training or demo mode at the beginning. I didn't even see where to put the player name until after I'd been playing for a while and wondered why I hadn't been asked. Also, because unlike most players, I don't enjoy games once they get too challenging, a relax mode that's on the easy end of things would help with that.

Thanks for another fun game!

This is a HIGHLY addicting game!! I downloaded this a while ago and I played and played until I finally conquered the game. I finished every level! It was probably 3am and no one in the family cared, but I was proud.

It is a simple concept puzzle that will drive you crazy. So absolutely worth the download!!

Thanks so much for a GREAT looking game! I've publicized it big time, especially to fellow homeschoolers who might be studying Egypt or plan to. What nice graphics!
Thanks tons for making it easy to download and install too. Some of the games I've tried to download here were hard to "finalize" and find once downloaded, but you made it quick, simple and easy. God bless you and yours and Game Giveaway of the Day. I'm adding your ticker to my blog, by the way :)I already have had the software one for a long time.

I downloaded this game previously and thought I read it was updated, so I downloaded again today with no problems. (Win.7) I'm not noticing any differences. I really like this game and have recommended it to my friends. Thank you for a nice, match 3 puzzle game. It gets very challenging but I've learned to beat it.


..........................Moderator comment....................

Sorry Dona, I neglegted to remove the part about it being a new update. Becasue we've been given this four times i just used the eview from last time with some changes such as the problems section and other games that are available at the moment on deals.

#30 - Todays version of Brick Shooter Egypt is identical with the last version given away on 22.05.2012. I want some new games.

So, this is going to be given away again in a couple of months? That's nice to know.

: )


.......................Moderator comment.........................

As mentioned above, I used my last review and neglected to remove the 'newer version section. sorry if this caused you to re-download the game.

You have to remember we are getting free games with no advertising. The economic climate is such that not many sites are willing to giveaway many of their games especially as we are still not getting an awful lot of useful feedback considering this game is downloaded at least ten thousand times every time its given away. Plus some of the sites that used to give games here such as Realore have their own giveaways now plus several developers no longer exist. Times are still hard, so to have been able to secure any sort of game in my opinion is brilliant. You can always go to paces like MyPlayCity that have almost six hundred arcade games, most of which are premium games that are still being sold elsewhere, but there will always be a price to pay for those, whether intermittently as tool bars and home page changes to your browser opening up to their home pages every time you close the game down, or if you download Gamehouse games, every few levels getting 20 to 40 seconds worth of adverts. Game giveaways are clean of all that and often are free standing so ca be played from externals pen drives and even CD's/DVD's

Off-Topic:

Just for everyone's info ... I visited "MyPlayCity.com" website suggested by "Vineet" in Post #2 ... and installed their "Checkers" game ... and although they don't Force you to install their stuff and make their URL your Home Page ... they will Continuously NAG you everytime that you start the game with Pop-Ups and their Website opening ... to a point that I just uninstalled the darn game!

Thanks! :)


..................Moderator comment..........................

That has always been the case with these free sites apart from the popups. Do you have a pop up blocker installed? I've just installed a few MyPlayCity games and don't get those pop ups just the opening to MyPlayCity when I close the game down.

I so wanted this to work. So that being said , it didn't.

Another one of those games that said "BrickShooter.exe has encountered a problem....BLAH BLAH BLAH. You know the rest.

Oh well. I am used to it. At least I got yesterday's Chess game to work.

Hey the games are free. I'll live with it. What am I going to do. ask for my money back. :-)

It has been stated that this game has been downloaded thousands of times so far. I wonder how many of those thousands have the same problems as I do but never take the time to post that in the forum.
Just a thought.


.......................Moderator Comment.....................

Hello Joe, there has to be an underlying problem with your computer or at least the way you have it set up if you are having so many problems with these giveaways? I have only ever had one issue with all of the games that have ever been given away since Dec 2nd 2006 and basically virtually everyone else did as well at the time.

Have you worked through all of the suggestions at the end of my review @ comment #1? Do you have all the frameworks installed? do you check your event logs to see if there has been any error messages, have you updated your drivers, hae you checked to see if there are any conflicts with other prograsms running on ou computer?

@Mike: running a game in Windowed mode is a choice I want to have. I don't care if it takes more or less CPU. I can handle that.

It is an omission not to be able to run the game in Windowed mode right from the start. (well in this case you can by editting [fullscreen="0"] in the userfile you #25 and I #21 both already metioned).

I like Playrix games and having purchased numerous ones for the family was very interested in today's giveaway. Looks like a nice little game that installed/activated in my Win7/64 system with no problem at all. A minor detail as was noted by another poster is that the game did initially open up at the 3rd level with Playrix listed as player, but the fix is simple - just put your name in New Player field and start new game. I just played through the entire first level with no issues at all and this game is a keeper. Thanks GGOTD and Playrix!

This game gets extremely challenging as you move up the levels. I thought I was the only one who secretly cheated the game into submission using the "Undo" functionality, but I am heartened to hear that so many others have found the same way around some of the impossible levels in this game. It is an absolutely fun and addictive game. And even if the secret of how to "cheat" is out, it is still challenging and requires a lot of planning to figure out how to use the cheat to get past some levels. Well worth the download!

Fine Win 7 x64 Nvidia GTX 460 full screen. Initial launch it did a black screen at first but continued to full screen. Didn't try other modes 24" LED LCD. Has sound, music sliders & tips. Played this on older system ad just seems more playable on big screen to pick up on which brick has the marker. That one can get bit hard to find when a few others of color get in play. Keeper again. Leaves a URL desktop icon URL to Playrix$ games along with game icon (installed to D:).
Rate 9/10 for its type & cost. Thanks guys.

Been playing this game for years, I love it!!! I had it on an external harddrive so just copied its folders to my new machine and it still works.

Glad to hear it has an update. I think many of the improvements mentioned in the review are valid and would make the game more fun for replayability. Going to download this newer version and compare.

Thank you Playrix and GGOTD... I was near the end of the levels.. and by that I mean stuck at one for the past six months or so (BTW that you Gene_B for the hint) and that laptop decided to test its terminal velocity.

While Gene's hint is true, that everytime you undo a different brick is generated, this is also a pain because sometimes I undo when I haven't seen something, but then I can't execute because the brick changes.

Looking forward to using scores, and wondering if when you win enough points, there is a hint generated? That would be helpful for the hair pulling parts.

A terrific game and I would recommend to anyone who uses puzzles/Match 3 to destress... or stress about something other than work.

Thanks again

Thank you so much for bringing this back. I love this game. Very addicting. Completed at least 20 times. Lost this and 7 other Playrix games all at once. I went to uninstall 1 game with "Your Uninstaller" a program given away by GOTD, it uninstalled all my Playrix games. Very upset but happy now I have my favorite game back.

I have taken all games off my computer except this one. I have had this game a couple years now and still "need" to play it every day. I used to love Match 3 games but after a while I had enough of them. Though Brickshooter Eygpt is a Match 3 it does not seem like it to me.

#6: "In the description Windows 7 is not mentioned, but in #1 it suggested that you can play it in Windows 7. What are we to believe?"

Prior versions on GOTD have run fine in win7 32/64, Plus, Whiterabbit always tests the game giveaways on several machines running XP through win7, Plus, it would be extremely rare [I've never seen it] for any app or game to run on Vista & not win7. That said, if you're still concerned, set a Restore Point in win7 before you install.

* * *

#10: "When I install this updated version, will the progress be lost, or is it safe to install it on top of the “old” game?"

I won't know for sure until later today when my wife's home from work -- I don't know if she wants to start over or not -- but in case it helps, Playrix games *usually* store their saved games in a Playrix folder under Documents and Settings\ [UserName] in XP, or User\ [UserName] in Vista/7... find [search?] the folder, copy it somewhere else, & if necessary, if install wipes out your saved games, copy that folder back.

* * *

#17: "I always play the game in full screen, but I’ve needed to play it in windowed mode.. and that mode is really messed up on my system. In windowed mode, the bricks launch in a clunky manner a delayed and jerky motion with the sound out of sync."

Playing one of these games in Windowed Mode is usually more work for your PC or laptop I think. You might try running those games that give you problems windowed in a VM -- the VM itself runs in a window & so the game can run full screen -- though you'd probably want to use VirtualBox or VMWare as Windows Virtual PC has hardly any D3D support.

Thanks for your feedback Mike.

Got too far behind today. Been fixing my sons computer. He had ound problems, so I fished out an old Sound Blaster Audigy X2 caed thta had been laying around which fixed the problem (though I had to virtually empty out a whole cupboard of computer bits and perhipherals to find the thing).

Often Win 7 isn't quoted on the older games, but generally they work quite well. I can't remember one game that hasn't worked on Win 7 since I first installed my first copy back in the summer of 2010. Thankfully I still have at least on XP and oe Vista boot still working. Everything else was changed to win 7 after finding it much better than previous operating systems. I'm curious to find out what win 8 will be like. I downloaded the loader to try it out, but not acctually installed it yet. I'm not sure whether to bother until it's released or whether to create a partition on one of my larger drives. :)

Absolutely one of the best games ever offered on this site. I still play it to this day and I've had it since the first time it was offered (and the update as well). Recommended VERY highly. :~)

Reply   |   Comment by gb  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

I got this game the last time it was offered on GAOTD, and I still occasionally play it. "Occasionally" doesn't mean I don't like it, but rather I play it more often than most other games (other than Freecell, which I play far too much). This is a good puzzler for me - challenging, but not too hard (which means that I haven't gotten to the higher levels just yet!). I recommend it to you.

Reply   |   Comment by Michael Burkley  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

An intriguing 'distraction' of a game, that I don't think I'd replay (assuming I ever get round to finishing it in the first place!) without some sort of incentive - but what that might be, I don't know.

I like that the edge-bricks show you the direction they'll go - but at the same time, there seems to be no reason to do so, as they can only go in a straight line. More helpful is the cross that shows that a brick CAN'T move.

The 'hint-arrow's' appearance seems a little... random, time-wise - but then again, most of them do. Assuming I've not simply missed one, I'd like to see a hint button (particularly for the later levels, I assume).

One curious thing - I allowed the game to start immediately on activation, and it started me as Playrix, on Sneferu 1 !! Obviously, it was simple enough to add my name, and delete 'Playrix' - just an annoyingly odd thing for it to do.

@Graylox, #10: Quote "When I install this updated version, will the progress be lost, or is it safe to install it on top of the “old” game?"

I think (didn't try) you best try installing next to the old game.
This way the old game is not lsot and you keep your progress.
The new Game will have no progress at all but you might try copy
[game-folder]\userdata\userdata.xml from the old game to the new game.

I think it's at least worth a try, nothing to loose (yet ;) ).

I love this game and lost it a couple of weeks ago due to reinstalling Windows so glad to have it back.

I found it odd that it starts half way though a game under the player name of Playrix. So those thinking that it's quite hard from the off should maybe start a new game instead. Unless of course it was only me.

I hadn't noticed this until someone pointed it out as i didn't get chance to check the game out till later today. I used an earlier review I'd posted.

My favorite game!
Warning: try not to restart any level, because then you will loose all your points... So finish each level, how difficult it seems to be.
My actual score in this game: 2347920 points.

@ corno (#6) Yes, you can play this game with Windows 7 (32 and 64 bits)

I absolutely love this game. I downloaded it previously but lost it recently when I had to re-format my hard drive. I had played it to the last level and couldn't crack the final one but never tired of playing it. Thank you for offering it again. Although the game play is fairly simple it is extremely challenging, especially at the higher levels, and highly addictive.

I got this game from here back on Nov. 14th 2010 and still play it all the time....to unwind. It's just enough of a challenge to focus on and settle the nerves. I've discovered a couple of small "cheats" to keep you from getting hopelessly stuck. The brick colors are randomly generated at the start of a level, so if the colors you need to match existing bricks are not there you can simply restart the level until you get the needed colors. Very helpful on the higher levels where you can fill the screen digging for the color you need. Also, as you launch a brick from a column of 3 it is replaced at the low end with a random color. Again, if you MUST have a certain color, you can simply undo and repeat your last move until that color comes up. It doesn't diminish the game for me to have a way out.
There is one negative thing, though. I always play the game in full screen, but I've needed to play it in windowed mode.. and that mode is really messed up on my system. In windowed mode, the bricks launch in a clunky manner a delayed and jerky motion with the sound out of sync. But all in all I've gotten a lot of free games from here and this one just might be the one I play most often.

Thanks for the hint. :) I always though they were randomly generated.
