Mobile gamers should consider checking out the new casual shooter Smashing Zoo. The game has you shoot animal-shaped balls to break bricks.
While this is not a brick-breaker in the Arkanoid mold, the game does have you shoot balls to break bricks in a 3D environment. Players score for each fallen brick and earn bonus points for shooting birds. Levels are completed once all of the bricks are gone.
According to the developers, Smashing Zoo has over 300 different levels to play with four different weapons. You can use a cannon, shotgun, grenade, or machine gun. And the animal shapes come in a wide variety: cow, cat, donkey, elephant, hog, ostrich, rabbit, seal, and sheep.
The game is now available on Android and iOS devices. You can download it for free on Google Play and the App Store.
