Interesting features:
Multiple levels A lazer ball, that shoots through bricks at a high speed without changing direction. A regular ball that bounces off bricks. Cool graphics! (In the shapes of our TA's and Professor) A brick that generates a new ball 10% of the time it is hit. A brick that must be hit by two different balls to die. A regular brick that must be hit once. A special surprise for those who complete the whole game (and keep the ball going long enough to find it out)! Fun and excitement!
