A giant sea serpent lashes at the screen. A majestic Pharaoh dances like an Egyptian. A helicopter spins and whirls in three-dimensional space. The detail on the chopper is so extreme, you can see through its window and into its cockpit. Like a mad scientist’s fusion of Magic Ball and Hyperballoid, Timebreaker features jaw-dropping 3D animated levels. Your mission: Smash them into smithereens with your ball and paddle.

In addition to eye-popping visuals, Timebreaker offers a collection of unique bonuses, including a gravity power-up that gives you control of where the ball goes and a helper droid who’s as cute as he is useful. What’s more, the game is tailored for players of all skill levels; whether you’re a novice or an expert, Timebreaker will entertain and challenge you. Download the free trial version now, and experience the new standard in Arkanoid games.


Marking a year since Halo 2’s launch Bungie has revealed some more details of the Xbox 360’s somewhat obscure backwards compatibility features. We already knew there are probably going to be some old Xbox titles that won’t run on the new console but Halo fans will be pleased to hear that the top selling title is definitley going to work. It looks like the 360, instead of simply playing the Xbox games, will manage to make them look a whole lot better too (as the pic supposedly demonstrates) enabling widescreen, 720p graphics and full-scene anti-aliasing. This should provide the reason for digging out the old Halo games that Xbox promised us before and, best of all, you can just use your original copy to play; no alterations are required. And all of Halo 2’s Xbox Live features will work too.
