- Easy: The balls start at their slowest speed. This is ideal for young children or first-time players.
- Normal: The balls start at their standard speed. This is good for people already familiar with the game, and similar games of this genre.
- Hard: The balls start out at a much faster speed, and hit their max speed much higher. Only players with insane reflexes will be able to handle the fast-pace of this skill level!

You can play this game with either a joystick or paddle control - I recommend the paddle control. Now one of the features I noticed, when using the paddle controller, is your on-screen paddle is "stabilized". No more jittery paddle effect, resulting in smoother control and more satisfying gameplay.
Concerning gameplay, the ball moves about the screen in a much more interesting and realistically random fashion than SB. For example,the ball can take out several bricks with one hit if the angle is right vs.one boring brick at a time with SB. Also, the ball doesn't get "trapped" moving in the same redundant patterns, as often, as with SB. The game board brick design consistently changes with each completion. I love the classic Atari brick designs the best, such as the key from Adventure, and the tank from Combat. I won't reveal anymore, as you need to discover this for yourself! Another interesting feature of gameplay is how the borders of the brick area are not always the standard squarish shape. This allows for a greater variation on how the ball moves about the screen - real cool! These elements of discovery will drive you feverishly and you will hit the reset button over and over just to see what the next board look like! The next thing you know, it is 2 A.M. in the morning - you have to force yourself to put down the paddle and go to bed! I havn't experienced this level of excitement for a game since I was a kid playing "Pitfall".
My bottom line; Iif you loved Super Breakout or just thought it to be mediocre you will love Crazy Bricks with a passion!
