The game seems okay, but most of the game's strengths come from Breakout and its clones rather than anything original. It's okay as a free demo but I wouldn't pay money for it.

If you find yourself spiritually drifting (as I was for far too many years), remember that Jesus can and will walk across the water to reach you and bring you back to shore.

My main problem was that the ball is simply too slow, so it felt like I had to wait forever to hit the ball each time.

Problem with the demo is it doesn't mention you can increase the ball speed with well-timed presses of the B Button. I think that was a significant oversight.

I saw that listed in the controls, but I couldn't figure out when to do it in the game. Do you know?

Ash: Professor Oak, how's your Bulbasaur?
Prof. Oak: Oh, it only hurts when I sit.
...
Prof. Oak: It's only Chansey if Krabby won't let go. Bye, now.
Ash: I don't think I'm going to call him anymore.

Thought the game (demo) was utter POS. Made me want to play Alleyway on my Gameboy again though. Much better than this.

@Bulba: Keep practicing and you'll get he timing down. It's like RIGHT before the ball hits the paddle so you can volley it back. This feature makes a big difference in the gameplay.

FYI: Icon Games has re-branded the soccer theme in Soccer Bashi to Bashi Blocks. Obviously they couldn't make this available to WiiWare owners, so this title will only be available through PC, PSP Mini, and forthcoming iOS versions. There's some more information on their site if you're interested: www.bashiblocks.com
