This is another version of "Breakout", except the paddle can now hit the ball by swinging it like a tennis racket, which can cause the ball to move fast. The faster the ball, the more powerful it gets.

Note: The game has a bug where the ball vanishes, so I programmed it so when the ball vanishes, another ball spans with no effect on lives.

Simple and awesome, but the game crashes constantly!

Interesting idea, making the traditional bouncing ball game fresh. Will be better if less bug, but good job!

I like when people take stablished concepts and give them their own spin. Pretty fun! but it freezes a lot and won't let me play for too long ><

Concept is good, but the game is so buggy.

Quite fun, I enjoy the new spin on breakout. But how did you manage to write such a simple game in GameMaker that manages to be so unstable and buggy? It would be a 5/5 if you ironed out the technical problems

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
