 “ BreakQuest: Extra Evolution is an unusual game: from one side it’s a full sequel to BreakQuest, one of the best block-breaking and genre defining games licensed to us by its creator, Nurium Games but from another side its completely new game which incorporates our vision and based on our inspiration from playing original BreakQuest.” said Alexey Menshikov, CEO and Founder of Beatshapers. “ What we made is took best game and design elements of original BreakQuest and rebuilt it from the ground using today’s approach to the genre. In the Playstation®Vita version we adjusted our vision of break-out games by making it Freemium and adding PlayStation® features like “near” support and a lot of scoreboards.

With BreakQuest: Extra Evolution Freemium release, Beatshapers continues its move from porting to developing own titles for the current and next-generation of consoles.
