Icebreaker PC CD action strategy challenge smash shoot pyramids pit puzzle game! 



Magnet Interactive Studios Inc. 



In Icebreaker, there are pyramids, some blue, some green and some red. You can smash through the blue ones but can't shoot them. You can shoot the red ones but touching one is fatal. You can't do anything to the green pyramids but your enemies can. These enemies are pyramids as well and move around the screen trying to catch you. Some are too stupid to walk around the stationary pyramids while others fall into pits. Some pyramids take multiple shots to kill and others split when shot. Oh, by the way, you're a pyramid, too.

Welcome to Icebreaker, a world of dangerous pyramids that must be destroyed. You will face 150 different levels, each playable on four difficulty settings. The higher the difficulty, the greater the number of enemies you face. To complete a level you must destroy all of the stationary pyramids and then all of the seekers, your main enemies who chase you. For most of the game, you have to be aware of the different properties of the various pyramids.

Although red pyramids are deadly to the touch, they can be shot, but only your enemies can destroy green ones. The catch is that all three types (red, blue and green) frequently change color, blue turning to green, green to red and red to blue. Purple pyramids must be shot as well and when destroyed, create pits that are fatal if you get too close. White pyramids are made of concrete and must be shot ten times. Rainbow pyramids can turn to blue, green, red or purple or become a seeker.

As for enemies, you face a collection of adversaries that appear in varying numbers on the levels. Yellers and Cyanides will fall into pits or walk through deadly terrain while Yellers and Pinkos are both blocked by non-green pyramids. Limeys will avoid pyramids and holes and Chameleons masquerade as green pyramids until you get close. Lurkers can rush with a burst of speed but then require rest. Slow moving Zombies must be shot three times and, finally, the huge Meanies divide into two Nasties when shot. Nasties split into a pair of Grumpies.

Terrain can be deadly, too. Ice makes you skid and lava is fatal if touched. Slime kills you but not the seekers and swamps slow you down. Finally, some levels contain rocks that block movement and shots.

Icebreaker offers a different spin on the basic idea of action games, combining rapid-fire action and the need for constant thought. A single miscue on a level sends you back to the beginning where you must start a new game. Additionally, Icebreaker contains a complete level editor and level creator, allowing you to build your own diabolical fields of play.

For DOS/Windows (via DOSBox) [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']


This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.


All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.


Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.


Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.


Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.


  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.

    International buyers please email/chat with us to determine if you are eligible for shipping of a specific product. If you are, then international buyers not shipping to an address within the U.S. can expect their orders to take anywhere from 5 days to 4 weeks to be received, depending on how fast/well USPS is moving. Additionally, international orders typically have to go through governmental customs, which can delay the arrival process. Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying. Customs fees are normally charged by the shipping company or collected when you pick the item up. These fees are not additional shipping charges.
