RetroBall: Christmas

Play a fun and festive breakout-style, ball and paddle-based challenge: In RetroBall: Christmas, you must eliminate rows of Holiday Season-themed blocks in 13 increasingly-difficult levels. Inspired by classic ‘brick buster’ games from the 1970s and 80s such as Atari Breakout and Arkanoid, this stimulating arcade game for kids, teens and nostalgic adults alike requires you to constantly move your paddle in order to deflect a bouncing ball toward the blocks at the top of the play area. As well as enjoying the action, you can also partake in some Christmas cheer as you enjoy the holiday-themed imagery and music!
Reasons to play this enjoyable block breaking skill game: Fans of iconic arcade Flash games and retro classics should appreciate the simple game play here. Ball and paddle-style games were all the rage in the early days of computers – so this Retro Ball treat offers a merry trip down memory lane. Happy block busting!
Strategy to win: Good hand-eye coordination and observation skills, and fast reactions combined with great determination and endurance are the key to success here. Smart strategy also comes into play as you try to figure out the best angles to attack the various different block formations. Your bouncing ball often increases velocity as it ricochets around the play area – so remaining in control can prove tricky.
How to Play: A Flash-based, breakout arcade game for notebook, laptop and desktop PC / Mac (with certain browsers). When the game loads, click on the blue ‘Start’ button at the bottom of the game screen (This brings you to the Main Menu Screen). Then, click on that blue ‘Start’ button in the bottom right corner, and then on the Level ‘1’ Icon to begin the action.Earn to Die 

In each of the 13 progressively-tricky levels, your goal is to eliminate all of the blocks by bouncing a ball toward them using your paddle at the bottom of the play area. Your paddle mimics the movement of your computer mouse / touchpad cursor. At the start of a level, Left Click to begin the action, and then move your paddle horizontally along the bottom of the game screen to deflect the ball up toward the blocks (In early levels, the blocks are shaped like gift-wrapped gifts, but in some levels, they are smaller colored blocks arranged into a Christmas tree formation).
Once all blocks have been eliminated, you progress to the next level. However, if the ball manages to make it past your paddle and through the bottom of the play area, you lose one life. Keep an eye on your number of lives indicated at the top of the game screen. If you run out of lives, you must Re-play the level.
