Nervous Brickdown is a ball-and-paddle game in the tradition of such classics as Breakout and Arkanoid. Unlike those titles, however, there are several twists to the familiar action, many of which utilize the handheld's distinctive features. Players will not only use the stylus to control their paddle, but also to draw the paddle itself in a certain stage. Blowing in the microphone is required in another stage, as the game includes a total of ten "themes" to keep things from becoming too predictable.
Colorful, retro-inspired game backgrounds span both screens as players attempt to keep the ball in play while completing an assortment of offbeat objectives in 135 levels. Paddle pushers will save stick figures from drowning, blow away ghosts (literally), shoot down alien vessels, play golf, clean up ink spatter, and more. Friends can even engage in cooperative play via wireless connection, each controlling a paddle in a race to complete the lively levels. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
