Official description

KRYPTON EGG is played using only the mouse. Left click to eject the first ball. You will soon notice that the bricks are not all alike. The striped bricks release "spells". Here are some of them:
Glue / Spectre / Slow / Fast / Turbo bat / Leaden ball / Extra ball / Left-right switchover / Double points / Single fire / Double fire / Destructive fire / Multidirectional move / Computer-assisted play / Bat size / Anti-monster shield / Extra lives / Transparent ball / Freeze / etc.

Some have 4 levels of force. Use your reflexes to take the ones you want.
The aliens on the screen simply deviate the ball. The exception is a nasty fellow called Cyclopus Picus Vulgarus: avoid him!
To get through some of the screens, you'll need to spin the ball. With practice you'll soon be able to send it where you like!
Once you've battled your way through 10 screens, get ready for a monster! If you can destroy him, the way will be clear for a fresh series of screens. He's a tough brute with six lives!
