Ample variety, however, doesn't shoot Meteor past better competitors. There's no thematic progression and even with high-score table, little reason to play though the levels with any kind of determination. It's essentially a ginned up version of Breakout.
Still, that's not to ignore the immediate pleasure of bouncing a ball off your paddle and bashing various patterns of bricks into oblivion. For that sort of bite-sized entertainment, Meteor certainly fills a hole.
