BrainBreaker is a puzzle game published and developed by JME engineering. The game was released in 1991 for the DOS platform. The puzzle game is played from
a point and select interface and is placed with turn-based pacing. It features a flip-screen and fixed visual and is played from a top-down perspective.
The single-player game can be played using a keyboard or a mouse. In the simple puzzle game BrainBreaker, the player has to turn the playfield entirely dark.
The playfield incorporates cells of dimensions 3by3, 4by4, and 5by5. When the player moves, the color of the respective cells changes, such as 3by3, 2by2, or 1by3,
for instance. His movement can make the light cells dark and also the opposite (revert dark cells into light). When all the cells have turned dark, the game gets
completed. Although, there is no competition against any other player and therefore, you cannot lose the game. Nonetheless, the game counts the number of moves
until the entire puzzle has turned dark, or the puzzle has been completed.
Crossing a cell makes it dark. However, when the player crosses the cell again, it becomes light. Thus, it becomes necessary for the player to be careful about
his moves. Also, he has to plan his moves so that he can cross all the cells without the need to step back on the same cell.
The game features a help button. Hitting the button spotlights a potential move that will help him solve the puzzle. The help button can be used by the player
multiple times, as per his need.
