Block Block is a breakout arcade game released by Capcom in 1991. Its style of play is consistent with the traditional play of the brick buster type of games.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Block Block has two modes. One mode which plays through all 50 levels, and a beginner mode which only carries a selection of levels suitable for the novice. In the normal mode, the player is allowed to choose their starting level. Unlike some brick busting clones, this one introduces a twist on gameplay. You must use your playing skills to keep the size of the paddle in a playable state. If the paddle counter reaches zero, the paddle shrinks.
