You’ve probably played a brick-breaker or five over the years, but today one of the absolute classics is being reimagined, revamped and pushed out to modern day console. Are you ready to break out with Shatter Remastered Deluxe?
Available right now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam, Shatter Remastered Deluxe comes about via the PikPok team as they look to ensure players of the modern day can get to experience one of the finest genre titles like never before.
It runs a price of £8.39 from the Xbox Store – and you should expect other digital store prices to be roughly in line with that – taking the usual brick breaking ideas and mixing them up a bit. For instance, have you ever sucked or blown the balls in a brick breaker around the screen? You do in Shatter Remastered Deluxe.
Running at 4K 120fps, Shatter Remastered Deluxe looks great, full of colour and explosions like you would expect. It comes with a decent Story mode too, one that is accompanied by a host of other game modes – Endless, Time Attack, Bonus and Boss. You can play Endless and Time Attack with a friend too, working the local cooperative angles that Shatter Remastered Deluxe allows.
