Over the years, many people have commented about how much they like the game. Here are some of my favorites:
I had a half dozen "breakout" games I had downloaded
and played but after registering Macbrickout, I dumped them all in the
trash. Your game is the "Rolls Royce" of them all.
|"This is the best arcade style game ever in my opinion!"
|This is a wonderful game. I first became
aware of it when I was a teacher and my students started playing it during
recess. I had a hard time tearing them away from it :-). Now, I have a hard
time tearing myself away from it.:-) Many thanks!
|Stunning customer service...stunning game
My father is 75 years old and plays this game every day! It will be a
nice surprise to give him the full version for Christmas!
|We are continually impressed with the
incredible attention to detail you have paid to the design of this program.
We get many hours of enjoyment from it. This was a very worthwhile purchase...
Please keep up the good work...

|From a "kid at heart" this
is a beautifully rendered game. From my layman's standpoint, it is obvious
you have put a tremendous amount of work into making it. I've enjoyed the
"Demo" version so much, I just had to have the whole thing! Keep
up the good work...you deserve the fruits of your labors.
|Tonight the impossible happened. See if you can picture this--I
nabbbed a Red X (DOH!), figured I was dead as I was not getting multiples
on that bounce...ball came down and went through my (red) paddle and !!Surprise!!
hit the umphee....bounced up through the paddle, came back down....!!!Surprise
again!!!! !!!!!!! hit the shell!!!! bounced up through the paddle again
and then a Catch capsule came down and I grabbed it--got my paddle back
and 25,000!!! Ok so WHAT are the chances of THAT happening--the umphee and
the shell BOTH situated right underneath my paddle RIGHT when I get a Red
X???? hahahah it was awesome.
|Impressive, addictive game - shareware at its best.. How do
I stop playing? ;0])
|The attention to detail in this game
is incredible, I'm sure it has been a labor of love. If you ever release
a version 5.0, I will register! Great work Carson, this puts many games
to shame. The replay value is very high.
|It's hard to believe that the fun factor
could be increased so much over poor old version 3. This is by far my most
favorite piece of game shareware. :)
|Came across the Secret section last week and have enjoyed
trying all the different levels. That was a brilliant idea since if you're
not exceptionally skilled these are beyond reach. Particularly liked the
"Six is it?" The first time I tried it the screen just exploded
with blue capsules and I sat with my mouth open.
There are hours of entertainment ahead and I congratulate you on this new
|I think you've done an amazing job in this game! I particularly
love the "Umphee" -- every time he leaps in the air after being
hit I just laugh out loud... especially when he (I'm assuming it's a "he"...)
floats up in his little bubble -- priceless! I'm also truly impressed at
how "clever" you've made the game -- whenever there's a brick
left in a place that seems impossible to reach (such as in the "bombs"
bonus level"), eventually the ball will make it there. Great job!
|It all started as an innocent demo on
the Macaddict disc and it is taking over my life. My six year old son and
I began playing the demo and loved it, then we registered which opened up
a whole new world of fruit, capsules, and lasers. We play every night and
keep discovering new things, like how to trap a ball and what happens when
you get your ball is eaten by the clam shell. I now find myself in Macbrickout
Land even when my kids are not home. My laundry is piling up and the weeds
are taking over my garden! Is there a twelve step program for Macbrickout
addiction? We just love this game! Thanks for a game that is fun for the
whole family and allows action without violence. Keep creating. You are
Thanks, J. Borshak
|"Wow! Quite simply the most innovative
take on the old classic smash-the-bricks game that I've ever seen! The attention
to detail and all the small goodies and touches (like the umphee and the
sand and everything else not normally related to Breakout) make this game
a real gem."
"I thought the $25 price was pretty steep 'til I played it. I won't
go so far as to say it's a bargain now, but it's definitely WORTH EVERY
|I AM AMAZED . . . TOTALLY, TOTALLY COOOOOOL! I'm like a little
kid in a candy store! This was worth the wait for 2 years! You thought of
everything when you updated this game. Each surprise making my heart skip
a beat! If you do a 5.0 version, I can't even imagine what your clever mind
can come up with. Thank you for a clean, ingenious game that is just outrageously
FUN, FUN, FUN!! Your heart is in the right place! Your game is worth EVERY
PENNY, plus you gave me GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE when I needed it!!

Very, very inventive game... well done.

|"You've got a winner...great
game... polished and shined...it's a keeper."
"A great improvement over 3.0. I never registered
that one, but have been following the saga of creating 4.0 since you first
mentioned on your web site that you were starting over from scratch....(first
stopping by once a week...then thinking maybe you had ditched the project....then
very excited to find out that you had resumed coding with vigor). It was
well worth the wait, and is well worth the money. I support all shareware
developers who invest time and money into creating, exciting, addictive
non-violent games, as there really isn't many of these type of games out
on the market anymore. Thank-you for re-hooking me."
"...you did a very good job designing this
game. There is no room for boredom playing
MacBrickout, no matter the skill level of a gamer."
"Beautiful game! The 3D shadowbox look is nice with the sandbox below
that game sprites stick into/out of and the little crawling bugs. My first
multi-ball was unexpected and had the same effect as my first pin-ball multi-ball
(I won't say when that was!), NEAR PANIC HEART ATTACK! It's obvious that
his has been a labor of love; the attention to detail and the overall look
are just marvelous. Your ability to "think outside the box(es)"
(non-grid aligned rectangular areas) really seperate this from "yet
another break-out clone".

|"Carson, You are to be congratulated on a wonderfully
fun and exciting game. I truly appreciate your making the game difficult
as I am enjoying the challenges. My needs for play are being met and my
PC friends are very envious. Hats off to you. I am sure you will be receiving
many, many awards for this fantastic upgrade!! I really didn't feel safe
taking care of registration this way until I saw that my credit card number
was scrambled. You've done it again, you paid close attention to detail.
I think it might be worth a mention on your webpage that you have a secure
way to pay via credit card."
|"Another great game, I enjoyed
3.1.2, but this is great. Thanks Carson."
|"I love your game so
much! Thanks for keeping up on making old school type of games. I'm getting
sick of these new games where you have a gun and blow someone up. Its fun
for a while but BRICKOUT! This is the best game. Keep up the good work and
"Thank you- thank you- thank you! We've been looking forward to playing
this for years! Mac Brickout was the first shareware game we ever bought,
and we've enjoyed it so much!"

|WinBrickout is probably, no, definitely the best Brick-Bashing game in
