Me TOO!! Frustrating!
I used this game to help me quit smoking! My high score is 33690. It would be higher, but this glitch of losing the ball happens eventually in almost every game I play. You get past level 34 and it starts over again faster. I've never had the ball come back, so you just have to restart a new game
Brick Breaker Trackball Glitch on 8830
After many games of Brick Breaker, my trackball developed a "chatter" effecting accurate paddle control. The paddle became loosely tied to trackball movements, slower to respond during heat-of-battle trackball rolling, producing slow and inaccurate paddle responses.
The same symptoms are not present when outside Brick Breaker performing normal menu functions. Is there a download that will restore my Brick Breaker Paddle to its original level of precision coordination with the trackball on my Blackberry 8830 World Edition?[

Reason: removed font instructions
Two things to try if you haven't already:
1. Do a hard reset (i.e., remove the battery and put it back in).
2. Mute the game sound. I've seen times where having the sound on would materially affect the performance of the game software. Could make it look like the paddle is unresponsive.
See if either idea works, and please report back. Thanks.
See if these work for you nerds:
Jump To Next Level: ALT + 2 3 J M P
Slow Down Speed: ALT + 8 8 8
Extra Life: ALT + 4 7 1 1
Omg I didn't know they had cheats for this game! Do they really work? I might have to install the game again to try it out. (I took it out to make room for other apps.)
Hahaha that sucks! I'm horrible at that game... I never get far enough for it to mess up.
Cheat codes... wow; I was always suspect of those who had these ridiculous high scores. I was beginning to think I was just completely uncoordinated!
Ummm yeah I know this is just for high scores and all but if someone can help me find the brick breaker cause I deleted it from my apps to make more room and all but its not in the disc anymore.... How sad, but I wanted to know where can I get a free download of it again, please and super thanx!!
it happened to me already... i was pissed when it happened to me cuz i had to restart the game. i couldn't we have a glitch that it gave us a million balls? heh heh heh
The ball disappearing thing actually happens to me a lot. Sucks.
In a Bugs Bunny voice - who? what? when? - HOW DID YOU FIND THESE? Wow - what a great informational post!!!!
