i noticed that the ball disappears if the ball goes to the top above the highest bricks after they have fallen once. the space in between those bricks and the top of the screen is so small and the ball just gets lost in it and disappears!! i now know to try to avoid aiming my ball for the top when the bricks are about to drop. it's so frustrating.

i'm at level 29, 17000. it's a big competition between all of my friends.

and also, since this forum is about cheats, we haven't figured out any for the pearl, but on at&t's 8800, if you press the menu button immediately before you hit the last brick, it skips to the level after the next. pretty cool if you want to avoid a level you really hate. it only works on at&t's 8800, though. we've tried it on the t-mobile pearl, at&t curve and verizon 8830 as well, but the 8800 is the only one =(

Default disappearing ball FIX!!!!

Like you guys, I'm totally fed up with the disappearing ball problem. I was searching other posts/forums and discovered that if you leave the game running, the ball will eventually come back. There doesn't seem to be a concensus on how long it takes, but it happened to me twice tonight and took about 15 minutes for the ball to bounce back in.

I'm on a Pearl with a score of 49,430 on level 29.
I was previously on at 7100t with a score in the 400k range.
I understand you can get totally hosed after you hit a million with weird kinks in the game. I can't seem to get anywhere near that far on the Pearl.

Default disappearing ball

i've noticed a bunch of you have discovered that the ball will disappear if it goes between a brick and ceiling after they've dropped one row (actually they drop half a row at first). i lost a 200K point game and a 300K point game from that and almost threw my phone against the wall.

this is low tech, but a guaranteed way to avoid the problem... starting on the secound round (after you've beaten all 34 levels the first time), the screen drops by one row every time the ball hits your paddle. so, on any level with bricks at the very top, bounce the ball off your paddle at least twice before you send up towards the top. this will drop everything down enough that the ball can't disappear out the top.

the trick is remembering to do it every time you start a level. after a while it becomes habit.

Default Permeable paddle

I'm stuck on level 16. My problem seems to be that I try to do too much at once (hit the ball and get a power-up.) I always get burned because the power-up will "float" through my paddle if I don't get there quick enough. Sometimes, I think the ball goes "through" my paddle too if the entire paddle isn't under the ball.

I can't wait until the day I can check out the next levels!!!

Did you have to start all over from a new game when even a level ended?

Hi All,

Former 8800 user just switched to Pearl...

Just found this thread this morning, so I am new here but I have a little info on the "ball issue".

It is definitely Firmware/OS related. I had my old 8800 for a little over 2 years, and the ball disappearing did not start till after I got into 4.X...

Anyway, I have been through all levels many times and I can tell you that Brickbreaker gets a little more "glitchy" with each new OS or Firmware Rev.
