Beautiful Bricks was made by Matthew Vecchio of Ready Wolf. The project started in April 2016 and was finished in November 2019.

"Beautiful Bricks is the ultimate 4 player brick breaker. A restoration of an arcade great with awesome improvements like physic-based ball behaviour, more paddle control, 4 simultaneous players, super unique powerups and boss battles! All presented in a consistent retro '8-bit' aesthetic."

A basic version of Beautiful Bricks is playable online, or you can purchase the full version from itch.io or Steam.

Included is an online manual, describing many of the different paddles, game modes, bosses, point values, achievements and of course the game play.
