    approx 15 minutes ..... finally cracked through all the levels (34) with just a little more than 16,000 points - nothing glorious when you are done - you basically stat all over again with the first screen, only diff - screen starts to come down on you as time goes by. Don't quite know how people are racking 1 million plus points ? They are probably chained to their Pearls

    Re: BrickBreaker tips for 8100

    I think I've played over 100 games of brickbreaker.

    I made it to level 16 about sixty-five times.

    How many times have I made it PAST level 16?


    THREE!!!1!!!!111!!! STUPID freaking level!!!


    I'm sure I'll play another 100 times though, *sigh*.

    So what is the secret to getting through level 16???? I get there with like 7 lives and 9,800 pts. and then it's all over. Very frustrating!!!!!!

    Re: BrickBreaker tips for 8100

    My suggestion: When you make it to level 16, pause the game and turn off the radio. An incoming e-mail or text message can slow down the BB processor, making the paddle unresponsive. I suspect that the BB even checking in with the network (without any incoming messages) might slow things down. So whenever I get past level 15, I turn off the radio.

    As you know, you only get one capsule at level 16. If it's Catch, Long or Gun, or if you have a lot of lives left, it's worth continuing. Otherwise, I often don't bother. Just turn the radio back on and start over. More fun that way.

    Re: BrickBreaker tips for 8100

    I agree with j_llama that you should always accept a capsule, even the evil Flip, but only through level 15. Past that, I'm more judicious about it, because the lousy 50 points aren't worth a life. Starting at level 16, I only accept Flip if there's another capsule coming down that will put the paddle back into normal (non-Flip) mode -- and not all capsules will do that, so you have to continue being judicious.

    At some of the highest levels, Catch or Long can be extremely valuable, and if so, I'll avoid other capsules that change out of those modes (Slow and Wrap don't, so they're okay).

    Everyone knows that Laser is worthless against metal bricks, which are more prevalent at the higher levels. Sometimes a Gun can save the day at some of the highest levels -- depends upon the metal brick array you're dealing with.

    Re: BrickBreaker tips for 8100

    Here's my tip for dealing with the evil Flip: Imagine that the paddle is really a small piece of paper UNDER the pearl. When you roll the pearl to the left, that piece of paper would slide to the right, and vice versa. Works great.

    Using that mental trick works really well when you're in Flip mode. But just remember to switch your head back to normal mode again when you get out of Flip mode (another capsule or next level). That's when Flip usually costs me a life, when the ball is moving so fast I don't have time to switch my head back again, missing the ball by heading in the right direction for Flip, but the wrong direction for normal.
