Block Breaking Perfection
The Breakout/Arkanoid formula is an old standby for the independent developer. If one knows what he or she is doing, it's pretty simple to get the basics down. Making it good, making it stand out, however is a challenge. I know this from experience.
So very rarely, does one find a game in the genre that hits all of the right buttons without resorting to a gimmick. Brick Break Blitz, despite its semi-generic title, does everything that I needed to make me satisfied. It doesn't do anything new or different, but the gameplay and aesthetics are the best in any of the games of the genre I've played.
