button to release the ball. This paddle has no special weapon.

to accelerate each time it is hit by bouncing it. The
special weapon is a collection of balls that are released and will
cause everything they hit to be bounced. The ball will
change directions if hit. Any bricks hit will become
bouncing bricks which will continue moving until frozen or

bricks in front of you. The 2nd level of this paddle
increases the missile speed. The 3rd level increases the
speed and makes the missiles guidable. If your opponent is
hit by your missiles, he will be unable to move for a short period
Launch Ball-The launch ball acts much like the rubber
paddle special weapon. It will cause bricks which are hit to
launch off. The bricks will bounce until they are destroyed.
Fire Ball-The fireball will cause the brick to burn
until is melts down. At that point, it will launch off
mini-fireballs which will cause any brick hit to begin the melting
Ice Ball-The Ice Ball will freeze bricks hit by its
ice shards. Once frozen, the bricks will cease to move until
they are destroyed. When the ice is destroyed, it will shatter,
freezing any bricks which the shards hit.
Toxic Ball-The Toxic ball will infect bricks hit by
the viral shards. When infected, the brick will have a limited
life before it is destroyed by the toxins. Then, it
will automatically explode, releasing more viral shards onto the
the website! ~~
