Future, Robots have invaded the planet and terrorized cities.

A giant sea serpent lashes at the screen. A majestic Pharaoh dances like an Egyptian. A helicopter spins and whirls in three-dimensional space. The detail on the chopper is so extreme, you can see through its window and into its cockpit. Like a mad scientist’s fusion of Magic Ball and Hyperballoid, Timebreaker features jaw-dropping 3D animated levels. Your mission: Smash them into smithereens with your ball and paddle.

In addition to eye-popping visuals, Timebreaker offers a collection of unique bonuses, including a gravity power-up that gives you control of where the ball goes and a helper droid who’s as cute as he is useful. What’s more, the game is tailored for players of all skill levels; whether you’re a novice or an expert, Timebreaker will entertain and challenge you.

Unfortunately I have the same problem as 1, 3, 17, etc. Switches my resolution, takes up 99-100% of my resources, and has to be closed through the task manager. Shame, too, because I like breakout type games.

And I meet the sys requirements. Ah well.

Every day as the day before. Same questions. Same answers.
People need to read all requirements and instructions first of all.
Then carefully proceed to download and follow as directed.
Very simple.

System Requirements: Windows 98/SE/2000/ME/XP, Pentium 800MHz, 128MB RAM, DirectX8 or later, Direct3D Video Card.

i.e. Active Giveaway time left: 10 hours 52 minutes.

Sometimes, you just run the setup and activation, embedded in the setup process, at the same time and sometimes you need to run setup first and ‘activate.exe’ after.

After you play, many times, a gift like this one, then proceed to rate the gift and make a comment if you wish.

If I don´t miss anything, this is how this GOTD works.

I'll add, to Alawar's credit, that the trivia at the beginning of each level was an interesting addition, and that they thought of throwing a useful bonus at the player if the player was having difficulty with those last bricks.

I unfortunately have to agree with #4 (Semicolon) here... there's a definite lack of pace most of the time. Perhaps it's just a matter of adjusting the ball speed, but...
As for it being "3D", I'm sorry, this is about as 3D as Kentris (Hyperbole, people, hyperbole). The ball and paddle interact in a 2D fashion with the 3D objects, so there isn't much there but annoyance due to the movement of the blocks. The bonuses are also fairly plain and regular, and I might even dare say more if I knew more on what bonuses Arkanoid offered (though honestly, I don't remember exploding balls, though I DO remember those being in DX-Ball).
All in all, it's not a bad game, but it's definitely nothing extraordinary.

#17 (kapper) - I have an nVidia GF 6200, so I doubt that's your problem ;D

Great game! Thanks again GOTD! There are many arkanoid like games¨but this one has animated bricks and 150 levels to enjoy. And for Semicolon comment, how could you compare DX-Ball or even DX-Ball 2 to this 3d game? Are you nuts? Time Breaker is one of the best ever and it is given free. Want more?

By the way semicolon, DX Ball delux is a nice game. You can get the non delux version for free now. I'll have to send a post to the GoTD team when I have time as I've got the links forseveral free games that could go in the Freeware section. If you really want the best arkanoids though I suggest you get Acky's XP Breakout or Breakquest for the 2D arkanoid as they both have an immence amount of playability and player control over the game and Incrediball: The seven Sapphires for the best of 3D shooters. (Of course these are my opinions, but you'll find them with top ratings wherever they are reviewed.

I bought this several months ago when Alawar started selling it. I agree with comment #2 Larry B it's a nice step up from Magic Ball 2, but you must get Magic Ball three as it's fantastic. Regarding comment #4 by Semicolon. Your perogative, but I strongly disagree with you on this one, as my all family love this game. If you play it on easy, then yes the game is rather sedate, but there are other settings that make this a very attractive game. Apart from the themes, the great graphics and animated bricks there's a lovely soundtrack that cycles through several pleasant tunes, that really put you in the mood to play the game. A beautiful 3D arkanoid clone with lots of playability; (In my opinion of course). I'd recommend anyone to download it and at least try it as it's free. It was one of the top selling Arkanoids at Alawar. I just wish they had a bigger stock as apart from a few, I've got them all.
The game has three player settings and I can guarantee that unless you are an expert at arkanoid, you'll find the hard setting very challenging. You get bonus' for the number of balls you have left, whether you've had a perfect level, the number of ball bounces before having to hit the bat again as well as other bonuses. There's 26 power ups including a gravity ball, flame thrower, rockets and the other usual bonus's. There's 150 levels so it'll keep you occupied for a while. Good one GoTD and Alawar.

To #5 - Hello J! Just checked it and activation is working fine, without any errors. Try to reinstall it or even download it once again. Happy holidays!

When I execute Activate.exe I get:

---------------------------
Activate
---------------------------
Fatal error: key is invalid.
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance

Not a very interesting game. The novelty of the 3D bricks flying around in various shapes only lasts so long, and that's all this game has going for it. Until you find a decent powerup, the game is rediculously boring. The ball never speeds up without a powerup, so most of the time excitement is restrained to a miniscule amount.

This game is only fun when you have multiball/speed up powerups... and you don't get them often.

Don't waste your time with this one folks, stick to something good like DX-Ball.

Same here. The display is set to 800x600 and stays that way as long he TimeBreaker process remains active. It can only be closed using the task manager and uses up to 90% of my CPU...

Another great find. Alawar has done an outstanding job again. This is a step up from "Magic Ball". A very fresh approach to the standard "Breakout" style game.

This does not work for me. The screen goes black for a moment then resets my display to 800x600. That is all. Pity.
