So, let’s take a closer look at Sebastian Barrotta’s Bitnoid!

Bitnoid- A Modern Brick Breaker

Bitnoid is a stunning minimalist twist on the arcade classic, Brick Breaker. Armed with your trusted paddle, you have to bounce the ball to smash all of the solid blocks without colliding into them. You can collect bonus points and tons of exciting power-ups from bombs to lightning as you go along.

And much like the classic hit Brick Breaker, this modern take is just as challenging as it is fun. The higher you ascend, the more difficult the game becomes. There are 50 levels and a cool unlockable infinite mode to play. There are 20 different unlockable paddles too. The game also features great graphics with a dreamy atmosphere and background music.

Anyone who enjoys classic arcades like Brick Breaker and hyper-casual games will love playing Bitnoid. So, be prepared for this action arcade to become your next mobile app obsession.

Bitnoid is the second successful game that Sebastian Barrotta and his Canadian based indie game company, Astro Hound Studios has created. His first game was the endless space shooter cmnd/ctrl.

On our official Buildbox forum, he shared a little bit about his game’s road to success. “No publisher or ads. I released the game as a pre-order and Apple featured the game in the “Coming soon” section. Once pushed live, it had an influx of downloads, which is why it hit the US chart!,” stated Barrotta.

Bitnoid hit #40 in the action games category on the US Charts.
