    Not actually a fan of the trilogy, but it's an apt analogy. My wife and I started playing (i.e. competing) with brickbreaker last November. We generally kept up with each other, with me holding on to the high score until early February. We first got stuck at "the L" and for much longer at "the U" and then after breaking the 10K mark we found ourselves consistently dead visiting "the U" the second time around. Then she had a breakthrough and got to 32120.

    It drove me nuts. We continued to play furiously and obsessively until a couple of weeks ago, when I finally bested her score by 90 points. Then... something happened. I guess I started seeing the binary code behind brickbreaker. My next game went to 268K before I accidentally closed it (playing it in the middle of the night in a hotel room). The next game brought tears to my eyes, as I died at around 65K, having bumped around in the single digits for lives for three rounds. The very next game, however, had me down to one life again at level 28 of the third time through but I managed to limp on. Now I'm on the same game with 360K and 122 lives.

    Needless to say, my wife is no longer interesting in speaking with me about brickbreaker! It's hard to transcend...

    Ok, I almost threw a block party when I hit 10,000 at level 16. How pathetic is that? I play it for hours.
    Wow, I must really suck at games.

    OH...and it totally cheats. The ball will go through my paddle, it goes through the non-existent space between bricks. Whoever invented that game? Needs to be slapped.

    Why does it "skip" or "Jump" or hesitate sometimes? How can that f*cking little ball go right through my paddle sometimes? How can it go between the diagonal corners of the bricks without taking either of them out?
    These are the things that keep me up at night.

    I laughed so hard reading this thread I almost cried, especially the posts about dead legs coming off the toilet, and taking pictures of your game because you're afraid the device will crash and you'll lose proof of your score.

    That made me laugh because I've been taking pictures of mine as I'm just shy of 300,000 points with 39 lives and know I'll be able to run this well into the millions as long as the thing doesn't freeze up on me. I was at a little over 100K during a session on the weekend and made the mistake of trying to turn off the wireless (it screws up my game when an email comes in). The "Turn Wireless Off" got hung trying to turn off. I then tried to fix that by turning off the device, which also hung. Normally the only fix for that is to pull the battery, which means bye bye Brickbreaker game, and no record of your score. I let it sit, and it reset itself at midnight with an automated power off, and I was ready to go the next morning, game intact.


    My previous high score was just over 30,000, and I could never quite get through the full 34 levels the second time through. Once you get through the second round of 34, the game becomes very easy. I could play this indefinitely, and will! The game is friggin' addictive, and great because you can play it for 5 minutes at a time and stop anytime when you've got something else that needs attending to.

    Ok, I've now got 12,990 points and I've gotten up to level 24. Given that there are what, only 34 levels, I want to know how these people are getting 1.4 million points. At my rate, I'll finish level 34 with only 20,000 points. HOW ARE YOU PEOPLE GETTING SUCH HIGH SCORES?
    It's driving me crazy, and believe me, folks, that ain't a long trip.

    It rolls back to level 1 after you finish level 34. The second time through the bricks start falling as soon as the level starts, and the ball STARTS fast. If you can get through all 34 levels a second time (tough), it rolls back to 1 again and it's much easier. The bricks continue to fall immediately, but the ball gets much slower. It stays that way and never gets harder again (or at least not through 30+ run throughs of the 34 levels I've done).

    I got up to just over 500,000 points, and then the damn thing froze up on me. I had about 70 lives. I knew that was gonna happen. I took some pictures at around 300,000 because of it. Once you've rolled it twice at level 34, the biggest challenge in getting to a million is to not have the stupid Blackberry malfunction and screw up your game.

    I got really far in the game and i have 18 lives!!!! but the ball just flew off the screen!!!!!! The paddle is still moving but there is no ball!!! do i have to start over?????
    If you lose your ball in the netherregion of brickbreaker space, there is hope. If you keep your game going and just leave it sit, usually overnight does it, sometimes longer, the ball will reappear. You will most likely lose that ball, but you can continue with your game, I've done it a few times, only once did it not return after two nights of leaving it on. Hope this helps. Current game 72620 with 26 lives on level 4x 12/24.

    I ssuucckkk at this game but for some reason still feel compelled to play. I'm stuck at level 14 or something.

    It's funny, I don't feel an urge to touch a hot stove, cause I know it will be torture. Buuttt, for some reason, I sit down on the toilet and can only think "Brickbreaker".

    My toilet game used to be Monopoly, wish someone would write it for the BB
