Most brick-breakers settle (or strive) for austerity when it comes to presentation. Hyperballoid HD does not. Each stage comes with its own static backdrop. Most of these unassuming pictures look quite nice, but they don't amount to anything more than window-dressing. The special abilities look decent, and screen-clearing chain reactions look nice. But back to one of my main problems with this game; it's too slow.
At default settings, the music in Hyperballoid HD is far too loud. Of course, you can adjust the volume, so that's really not an issue. As far as quality goes, the techno/trance is decent, but it won't have you tapping your feet. On to the sound effects. Nothing remarkable here; the game sounds like any other casual game out there.
