A Brick-breaker like game (but *a lot* harder), that I and Zander made.

Your surroundings change every 10 seconds, from the walls to the screen rotation!

The ball's special effect changes by which wall it touches.

The blocks are only destroyable in a certain sequence
(red->yellow->blue->green->purple),
once you destroyed a red block, you can destroy yellow one, and so on.

A green wall resets the ball to no special effect,
the red wall makes the ball fly through blocks when they are destroyed,
the blue walls make the ball slower, the yellow ones faster,
the ball can teleport randomly when it touched a pink wall, and if the ball touches a black wall
(*usually* on the same side as the platform), you lose a life.

Complete support for the Xbox 360 Controller.

Requires .NET 4.0 (available here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=17851 ),
and XNA 4.0 Client Profile (available here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=20914 )

Did you install .NET 4 Client Profile and XNA 4.0? (links in the description)

Good, but way too confusing for me :/

Visually interesting! Would benefit from easing the player into it's mechanics.

Interesting twist on the classic brakout. I love how the screen is rotated so you have to figure out the directions every time. Confusing, but in a good way.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
