Today’s free iPhone app at FreeAppADay.com is Jet Ball. For those who are familiar with the classic game of Arkanoid, or most any game in the “brick-breaking” genre, the gameplay here is fairly similar.
In each level, you’ll be challenged with destroying all of the bricks (some even move) and other obstacles found on the screen. As the ball bounces up towards the bricks to break them, you’ll move the bounce pad left and right using touch controls.
The game contains multiple types of bonuses, released through two kinds of power-ups (power-ups drop from random destroyed bricks). Green power-ups are good, and give you rocket launchers, magnetized balls, and even fire and acid balls, while red power-ups are bad, and can speed up the ball’s movement, shrink the board’s size and more.
As you play through the game’s 65 levels, you can choose from three difficulty settings and earn achievements via OpenFeint integration. You’ll also be able to track your score on online leaderboards, and even change the soundtrack to play your own music while playing the game.
