Riotball is a surprisingly good entry in a market that is saturated with Breakout clones. What impresses me about this game is that it's chock-full of features that most of the other titles in the same genre do not have.

Some of the power-ups are pretty innovative. Collecting the wrong power-up can turn off the lights or cause the playing area to wrap around, e.g. Asteroids style.

Bonuses come in the form of gems and coins. Collecting gems will unlock bonus and boss levels, while coins can be bounced of the paddle for a multiplied bonus score.
