Destroy The Blocks (V: 1.3 Alpha)

by mclordalex - Jam Entry

When you install it dont run it right away as that might not work but add a desktop icon and run as admin and it should work sorry if this causes a problem to any of you....
When you start press "S" For the ball/bullet to start moving.
You can you "A" or "D" Keys to move or Left and Right Arrow Keys whatever suits you more. "ESC" to EXIT And by exit I mean stop the game completely. And that should be it. You also start in Full Screen but if you hit the bottom you are no longer in full screen and that is a bug I can not fix but I consider it as a loss of something. This is my first ever LudumDare and I hope my game turns out to be pretty good. I used GameMakerStudio to make this (Free Version) And so there is not alot of levels and I dont think I will get a perfect score on Graphics but you know I did this as fast as I can because I dont want to spend 3 days making it. I hope you all enjoy it and if so rate it good for my first. Thanks for reading this and I might try Java Coding for the next LudumDare hope you enjoy my game and Marry Christmas to you all :D

Quite a good game. I enjoy this type of game and found it quite fun, well done :) Only thing i would say is to make the block fall a bit faster

This is a fun little breakout game :) Next time, it would help to give the player a little more feedback about what they're doing (sound effects, sparks, etc) when you are doing something in the game.

Took me a few times to get the hang of the game play. Once I got it, I made it all the way to the end. The "ball" could go a little quicker maybe. I found it easier to play when it went out of full screen. Good work!

The thing about a Breakout game is that you need to make sure the player can apply an angle to the ball no matter what; after a few bounces, my ball was going straight up and down and I could do nothing to change it.

Ok sorry about that I saw that later on in the game as well and I do agree maybe the next game I make (Not going to be like this one maybe) there will not be a problem thats like that...

Interesting game.. Hard to track where you used the theme, though.

mclordalex says ...
Dec 19, 2013 @ 2:21am

Yes the theme I forgot 100% about sorry for that :(

Abysmal mechanics, the game is horribly boring, the music on the front screen was pretty bad and having a windows message box show up when the ball hits the bottom was a bad design idea because it breaks the full screen. And why is there a link to your youtube channel?

mclordalex says ...
Dec 20, 2013 @ 4:49am

Oxysoft this is my first ever game and first ludumdare so its not gonna be 100% Wounderful so please dont leave mean feedback but I do understand some of it what you mean and my youtube channel is up there because well I dont really know my friend was with me when I did it and told me to do so.

mclordalex says ...
Dec 29, 2013 @ 3:15am

Yes 01refael i agree but when I was testing it in the engine (I tested it like 300 times!!) it seemed fine I think something got tampered with but who knows...

You must sign in to comment.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


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 ( 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.
