Shards – The Brick Breaker

You have three chances to destroy all the glass bricks. Each brick shatters into shards of glass when the ball bounces off them.

There’s also bombs that will destroy the sliding bar if it comes in contact with it.

The best game is…Swipe Brick Breaker. This game is unlike the rest. It doesn’t have a sliding bar. Instead, it uses swipe interactions and aiming to launch the ball. You don’t have to return the ball either. It’s the perfect brick-breaking game. Just sit back and watch the ball break the bricks.
