Well here is some general information about the game:
1. In the begining screen before you choose your level it explains what each block that falls does to your paddle or the ball.
2. The expanded exploding just takes all the spaces (if there is a block there or not) and turns it into an explosive block
3. The yellow bricks can never be destroyed unless one of two things happens. (1. you get a zap square thing. that shows everything on the board 2. or your ball gets stuck in a repetitive motion and doesn't leave. then after a few times it will change.) 3.a. The laser gun will act like a ball (i.e. if you get a fire ball then the laser will be fire ball type.) , but against the yellow bricks you can't break em.
4. The answer to the last question is no. The only way to get extra lives is to get the upgrade brick that says +1 .
I hope this helps you. You will learn more as you play.
