The kind of arcade game you should have on your phone to spend a few minutes having fun
Once upon a time, a bar made of a bunch of pixels moved up and down on the side of a screen while another pixel bounced all over it. The year was 1972 and the game was Pong, one of the first video games to gain mainstream popularity. In the year 2017, you can now play a version of this epic granddaddy of all games on your phone. Created by 111%, a studio with a penchant of naming their games according to an indecipherable code, the game is an addition to a roster which includes BBTan, DDTan, CCTan and so on. FFTan is deceptively simple and each play starts from the very first block. Each block has a stipulated number of times that it must be hit before it crumbles. The war in FFTan is about keeping at least a few balls around the block at all times and preventing them from overshooting into the abyss below.
Unlike a few variants of the brick-breaker, FFTan is fast-paced. Bonuses and extra balls shower from above before you have a chance to even see what they all are. These bonuses are abundant and include lots of extra balls, powerups that contract or expand the pad and many more. Again, unlike some games which shower too many points, the scores in this game are based only on the number of blocks you crush. There are a few sound effects but a problem with the game is that it turns the volume of any music you’re listening to before opening the app way down and then it suddenly increases when you close the app. The game is pretty straightforward in what it offers and there are no distractions whatsoever. It is exactly the kind of arcade game you should have on your phone to spend a few minutes having fun.
