Well, Mike ran in to problems getting working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

by brookzerker - Compo Entry

You are stuck in a room and want to get out. Unfortunately somebody has placed a large number of bricks in your way. Luckily you have access to a ball and a paddle to whack the ball towards those bricks with a vengeance. All you need to do is break open the door and get the ball out of the room.


w - moves the paddle up
a - moves the paddle left
s - moves the paddle down
d - moves the paddle right
space - start the ball
enter - start / reset the game

There four types of bricks in your way.

Green bricks take one hit to be destroyed,
Red takes 2
Blue takes 3
Grey have infinite health

Also, items have been embedded in some of the bricks. Destroy the brick to release the item. If you catch it with your paddle it will be applied to the game.

One last thing, watch out for the lasers.

This game was made with the Love2d game engine. As I don't have access to a Windows box I was unable to test the Windows deployment.


Known issues

Sometimes items fall through the paddle and are not applied
Sometimes laser timers don't reset between games and will kill you instantaneously

Not a bad entry. I'd assume, since this is a remake, that you're early on your game dev journey. If so, good job! The paddle was a bit too slow to catch things AND hit the ball, but other than that this one was pretty fun, and not frustrating xD Good entry!

Really addicting, the classical breakout formula. With lazers :D I liked it, but could not finish it.
