Block Breaker Deluxe is a video game developed by Gameloft for mobile phones. It was also released for iPod, Windows PCs, the N-Gage platform and the Wii as a WiiWare game. Gameloft claims it is the best selling arcade wall breaking game on mobile platforms, with over 8 million copies sold.[1]

A sequel, Block Breaker Deluxe 2, was later released for mobile phones and the iPhone OS. A third game, Block Breaker 3: Unlimited was also released, in 2012.


The game is a Breakout clone with an urban nightclub or casino themed setting[2][3] with the object of the game being for the player to break as many blocks as they can without causing the ball to fall. As they progress through different levels, power-ups become available to the player to aid them.

The player will progress through a map which shows different locations that contain a set of levels. Each set has 10 levels with a boss battle at the end. Initially, only one location available at the start and more can be unlocked by finishing the level sets sequentially. Every location has its own character that acts as an in-game tutor who give tips and tricks during gameplay. Optionally, the player can purchase an unlockable location which offers an endless, randomly-generated levels.

Each level contain a special "gift" power-up, which can be used to gain reputation at the specific location.

There are seven different locations, with one of them are a special randomly-generated level.
