Here's "Breaker". Very original, I know. It's kind of like a mix between Tetris and Minecraft, only insofar as there are blocks that fall from the sky, and they are breakable. So what's the point of the game? I have no idea. Just give it a shot, punch some things for a while, and let me know if you have any ideas.

For real though, this isn't the most interesting, or "deep" game, but I had a pretty good time making it. My art skills are lackluster, but I think I did an okay job at at least keeping things looking consistent.

=== Controls ===
Move: Left/Right
Dodge: Double tap Left/Right
Jump: Up
Punch: Z
Special: X

The "special" (X) is what comes out of the chest blocks, in case you were wondering why it doesn't appear to do anything.

This was pretty fun. I loved the music, better than most of what I've seen so far, and the gameplay is pretty tight. The animations on the player were really cool, but I did find the art a tiny bit basic, not bad by any means, just basic. It fits the theme well too. Overall, very fun, good job!

Awesome music and player animation. Also pretty fun to just beat stuff up. I seemed to not die from falling blocks though even though the beginning made it seem like they would kill me.

Very fun, though a little repetitive at times.

Wow! I got to say I didn't expect much but it really impressed me!
Good game mechanic there with the blocks. Gets around the theme pretty well!

Fun game! I like the concept, controls and mechanics overall. Difficulty is pretty tight, too bad a vortex caught me with explosives and all that :D Great work!

Cool concept! I died so many times! :D
Punching those boxes give really a lot of satisfaction! I liked it :D

Great fun! Well polished too, good work.

I really like how the tutorial was inside the smashable boxes. That was a nice touch. It wasn't obvious you could combine the double direction with the punch to get a 'running smash', but I figured that out with a bit of button bashing.

Great concept, music, and animations. I really like the mix of platforming in a tetris style board. It does get repetitive, but I had a fun few minutes. Well done!

Nice game, reminds me of the trophy rush mode in Super Smash Bros.

Nice simple game, the cube breaking mechanic is satisfying, good music too! Maybe i am a little rusty, but i think there could be an indication of where new blocks will fall, like a shadow for .3 seconds. Good job!

I really liked that. I particularly like the character sprite/animations.

Easy to learn, fun to play, and easy to lose a lot of time with! Very nicely done. I loved rushing back and forth trying to break the blocks while avoiding falling ones and being shot and being blown up.

I wish I could've lived long enough to open that treasure chest! WHAT WAS INSIDE?? :D

Pretty fun gameplay! Not that easy too. I know I can do well in this game when playing with the controller.

I like the whirlpool gravity effect! The graphics and sounds were good and fit rather well together!

A funny little game. Difficuty may be a bit tight (I often died too quickly). Good music.
