    Yes, you can reinstall them using Desktop Manager. Plug in your device, open Desktop Manager, click on 'Application Folder' and then hit 'Start' under 'Add/Remove Applications'

    From there you can check BrickBreaker (or any other app that came with the phone) and install them again on your phone.

    Do you have the latest OS installed on your computer (not on your BB)?

    Install the latest OS on your computer, update Desktop Manager, and check again.

    Good luck!

    Yes you're right, unless you updated your BB via OTA. Just make sure you have the latest DM, or AppLoader.

    Whoa, too many dots, xD

    Anyways...

    I think 5.0.1 is the latest DM. Try plugging in your phone and open the Application Loader, see if it asks you to update it.

    Did you try that?...

    You should not lose any app, unless that app is not 5.0 compatible.

    what mangcool has suggested is the way to install it, you can try disconnecting your PC from the internet before you run DM and then do the following . . .
    Plug in your device, open Desktop Manager, click on 'Application Folder' and then hit 'Start' under 'Add/Remove Applications'

    From there you can check BrickBreaker (or any other app that came with the phone) and install them again on your phone.
    I've started to wonder though if it is possible that an OS doesn't have a particular game ?

    This is always the ultimate solution for those sort of issues though some people don't like it and try to avoid it

    Glad that everything is back to normal now
