Mega World Smash
In Brief
Mega World Smash is a 3D breakout/arkanoid game that was released about 8 years ago via Alawar games, it’s a meld of their old Smash Frenzy breakouts (1 to 4) that were originally called Magic Ball 1 - 4) and Strike Ball Deluxe games; taking the best of each game and combining them with the addition of a power up upgrade shop and upgrade tree and four characters with different attributes as well as boss battles.
It was originally given away January 5th 2014 where it received a 74% positive rating from 493 votes with 62 comments which you can see HERE

The Game:
Mega World Smash is a brick-breaking game that takes place in the lighthearted, somewhat tropical setting of an amusement park. With a bright and cheery atmosphere, it's an attempt to add some cheer to what has otherwise been a traditionally bland genre, visually speaking. The graphics, combined with a loose story and three-dimensional levels, help Mega World Smash stand out a little. If only it were a bit more challenging.
Like all brick-breaking games, Mega World Smash follows closely in the footsteps of titles like Breakout and Arkanoid. The struggle that most games run into is trying to stand out from those classic titles. Mega World Smash, as with all the other brick-breakers that have tried, has reminded us yet again that re-skinning Breakout and Arkanoid just leaves us with a re-skinned Breakout and Arkanoid, and not much more.
Maybe I'm being a bit unfair. Mega World Smash doesn't necessarily feel original, but it does do its best to stand out from the other games of its genre. One of the most noticeable differences is how the blocks are arranged in three-dimensional structures. Because the ball is always rolling on the ground, you can only hit the ground-level blocks. This enables gravity to take control in something I can only describe as Breakout meets Angry Birds (without the cute, slightly deformed birds, of course.)
Mega-World-Smash-005

Mega-World-Smash-006
As fun as it is to watch this structures collapse, the third dimension isn't the only tweak developer makes to the brick-breaking formula. Similar to other titles, there are power-ups and power-downs...lots of them. These features are what leads to the vast amount of collateral damage during any one of the game's 100 levels. The power-ups range from traditional items like guns and extended paddle to crazy attacks like air strikes, buzz-saws and homing missiles. The power-downs have just as many different levels of sanity. While the old favorites like small paddle and speed-up remain intact, new horrors (like “crazy ball”) make some appearances and do their best in trying to keep things fresh.
Sadly, these changes alone don't add much to make the game feel fresh for very long. After the first dozen stages, the levels start to feel somewhat stale and repetitive. The challenge is lacking as well, as extra lives are plentiful, and the ball moves quite slow. The developer has a few other tricks they try to use to keep you playing the game. The first of these is a story. Sadly, the story is really only told through occasional character dialogue and little scenes before boss battles. I credit them for trying, but a story in a brick-breaking game is like a cherry on top of your sundae: It doesn't matter how good or bad it is, it’s not why you're buying it in the first place.
The other unique quirk is the skill tree, which attempts to give Mega World Smash something of an RPG feel. As you play through levels, you'll collect stars. The stars are used to upgrade the effectiveness and duration of power-ups and abilities, and downgrade the power-downs, this is a direct copy from Strike Ball 3. Each character has his or her own specialty and that allows greater benefit in one of the parts of the tree. Like the rest of the game, the skill tree is a nice addition to the genre, but it hardly changes the core game play, and the game is easy enough where it can be played without touching the tree.
Mega-World-Smash-007

Mega-World-Smash-008
Where Mega World Smash reaches its maximum level of fun is during the boss battles. There are only five stages of the game dedicated to bosses, but they're unique creatures that add flavor and challenge to the experience. The bosses are amusing beings who include a giant enemy crab and a large pumpkin robot who speaks like Yoda. The bulk of the game is quite easy, but the bosses add a much-needed challenge. The average boss will spawn new enemies, roll mines at you, give you a random power-down, and attack you with its own projectile. A boss battle is an easy way to lose a few of your many, many lives. I'm very disappointed that there are only five bosses in the game, as they're easily the best part of the experience.
Mega World Smash is just about what you'd expect from a brick-breaking game. There's more destruction and it's certainly prettier than games like Breakout and Arkanoid. But the only challenging levels are the boss battles, and even those aren't much of an issue. If you've always felt like brick-breakers needed a bit more destruction and chaos, you're in luck. If not, you're just going to find the typical brick-breaker re-skinned into a 3D world.

Conclusion:
Breakouts are one of my favorite genres; however, I’ve always found the 3D variety rather easy to beat. This game is no exception. Still, it’s an enjoyable mix of Alawar's old Magic Ball/Smash Frenzy and Strike Ball games, with the addition of a power-up tree and up-gradable power-ups and boss battles. I'm sure there used to be a kiddy mode as well, but couldn't find it in this version (it may be via one of the locked characters, it's been a long time since I last played the game when it was first released via Alawar? Basically Mega World Smash is a decent time waster. I’d give this game a 7.5 out of 10 for family fun.

Suggestions:
1) … Add a 2D version
2) … enable the user to select which power ups are used. (this would allow experienced players to make the game harder by reducing the number of positive power ups or conversely make it much easier by allowing players to select the positives over the negatives.
3) … Include a level editor/creator
4) … Add mini games

My previous comments about have been deleted. I would appreciate an explanation, as I thought they were on point; at least a lot more on point than #9 for example...

Hi Min, your comments were not deleted, just not moderated until I woke up this morning. I'm a volunteer moderator who cannot moderate 24 hours a day.

Whiterabbit-uk, OK, thanks for that. It just confused me when my comments appeared for a while and then suddenly disappeared; I'd assumed that if they were awaiting moderation they would not show up at all until afterwards. At least now I'll know better next time!

Once again installing a Toomky Game on Win XP results in a "not a valid Win32 application" message. However, at least with this one changing the game shortcut to run the "game.exe" file rather than the default .exe results in the game running, for anyone who's having the same problem.

It occurred to me that, if a lack of difficulty is the issue for many, a player could avoid positive power ups & skill stars, & ignore the power up store. However, if the game play really is unchallengingly slow, that may be only a band-aid (or applying a plaster to my friends across the pawn. :P ). And, if they are so many that it's tough to avoid them, that too could be a distraction, or a challenge in it's own right, depending on what the individual player finds enjoyable about this sort of game. There is 1 final trick, making a point of challenging yourself by purposely absorbing some or all of the negative power ups (power downs). But all of this may be too much attempt to salvage the game for those that find it too easy.

watcher13,

I still play this one occasionally and always try to catch the speed up and small bat tokens to make the game a little more challenging.

Installation hung at around the 98% mark. I waited then got the windows message that the installer was not responding. Activated Task Manager to end the install process which I did. I checked the desktop an sure enough the game icon was there. I clicked on it and the game ran fine. Played a few levels and exitied the game without incident. Never had an installer behave this way before. It's a WIN 7 PRO 64 desktop.

Where's the game? There's the usual Setup button, but no game!!!!! I was looking forward to this.

Paul Caplin,

Hi Paul, try reinstalling the game. If that doesn't solve the issue try downloading using a different browser.. finally, check the FAAQ's thread over in the game discussion forums

Paul Caplin, need more info, what do you mean by the "usual Setup button"? Is this before or after you try to download, or install?

Gave this a go out of curiosity to see how it'd run on a lowly 1.6ghz celeron laptop, and I'm happy to say very well, even when it had to be installed to a USB stick. No signs of slowdown at all, regardless the amount going on, so if you're after something a little mindless to play on the move this seems a fun diversion and worth a try.
