It's one of those break out games! In this game the player uses the mouse to place blocks move the paddle to bounce the balls around the screen.

Would love to know people's thoughts and suggestions for improvement :)
I love it! I'm usually suspicious of Pico-8 games that use mouse. But this one is great. Saw this on Twitter the other day. Glad to see it finally published!
Will give it a proper try later. Here is my feedback after my first few attempts:
Ball got stuck in indestructible blocks
- Is it just me or are the balls getting a lot faster when they hit exploding blocks?
Thanks for the kind words!
Explosive blocks do speed up the balls so in all probability, they're not helping the issue. I did add a whole bunch of checks today to keep this exact issue from happening but it keeps rearing it's ugly head.
Will have to have a look into this a bit further in the future...
I had the same issue in my tutorial Breakout. I finally adopted this approach to the collision detection and it seems to work a lot better:
Otherwise, a good alternative solution would be a "walk-back" collision fix. Ball remembers previous positions and collisions. It notices if it's stuck and resets to a previous 'safe' position.
√ fun to play
√ tempted me to tame the chaos
√ made me wonder if I could break it
√ had me at the edge of my seat on the way there
√ tricked me into going for full control and endless points
√ blew my mind with an inherent feature instead
This is an extraordinarily well made game.
