Blitz Breaker from Boncho Games and eastasiasoft is a fast-paced single screen platformer in which you don’t walk or run. You’ll take on fast-paced single-screen levels in which timing is key. Sure, you can jump with the X button to avoid some hazards, but the bulk of your time with Blitz Breaker will be spent by pressing one of four directions on the left analog stick or the D-Pad so that you can send your character flying around the screen in order to reach the portal that will lead you to the next level.
The controls are simple, and the difficulty ramps up at a steady pace, but it never feels overwhelming. You’ll start with a simple tutorial level to get the hang of things, and then you’ll be jumping and dashing all over the place as you collect coins and try to reach the exit vortex as fast as possible. This is important because you need to finish each level by a specific time limit in order to get a star for it, which will be required for unlocking all trophies that the game has to offer.
On that note, Blitz Breaker has a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy for you to add to your collection. There are trophies for progressing through the game’s stages, collecting 5, 15, and 25 stars, dying 50, 100, and 150, as well as scoring 2,500, 5,000, and 10,000 points in the game’s Story Mode. Depending on your skill level, you can add a new Platinum trophy within an hour, with the trophy for dying 150 times probably being the only one that will require that you find a level where you can die withing seconds over and over again.
Blitz Breaker is a fun, bite-sized and fast-paced single screen platformer in which you don’t walk or run. It has simple gameplay mechanics, a minimalist look, and a Platinum trophy, all for a budget price of $4.99. Oh, and it’s also cross-buy, so you get the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions with your purchase, which means twice as many trophies for trophy hunters out there.
