BrickShooter is a uniquely addictive challenging game for strategists of all levels from children to grand masters. BrickShooter is not just for people who can think and move fast. It’s for anyone who enjoys solving puzzles and taking their own sweet time doing them.Here's a description of the new Classic Rules:
The field structure The game field is a square of a hundred cells. The game starts with some colored bricks arranged randomly in the field. Empty cells are black.Each side of the field has three layers of bricks. Any brick that can move will show an arrow when the mouse is over it. Clicking the mouse starts the brick moving through the field in the direction of its arrow. When the brick hits another brick it stops. A brick’s arrow stays even when the brick is stopped. If the obstacle is removed, the brick again moves in the direction of its arrow. A brick’s direction cannot be changed.For more information on the game, or to try it out for yourself, follow the links provided below.
Removing the bricks The trick is to join three or more bricks of the same color vertically, horizontally or in an L-shape. When this happens they vanish and points are awarded.
