That’s a quick one. In the last completion block of the destroy animation check if there are any bricks left:
private func destroyBrickAtIndex(index: Int) {

UIView.animateWithDuration(1.0, animations: {

}, completion: { (success) -> Void in

if self.bricks.count == 0 {


Remove all balls from screen, and display the alert. When the alert gets confirmed regenerate the bricks:
func levelFinished() {
for ball in breakout.balls {

let alertController = UIAlertController(title: "Game Over", message: "", preferredStyle: .Alert)
alertController.addAction(UIAlertAction(title: "Play Again", style: .Default, handler: { (action) in
presentViewController(alertController, animated: true, completion: nil)

The complete code for step #4 is available on GitHub.
