Hope you like it. Any comments and suggestions kindly appreciated.

I've reached tokens limit, so that is the end of this little project :). Im must admit it was a pleasure to struggle again with low level hardware programming like peek and poke, screen memory, memory addressing.

I like it, good work. The aiming mechanic is nice. Played it until my ball disappeared in a strange bug, score overflowed, and i guess the game didn't reset properly after i lost, so i got unlimited balls and i had no hearts left :) Also some kind of multiball + sticky ball + fire shot combo caused a non-stop stream of fire shots to shoot while the ball was on the platform. Aside from bugs, it feels like a solid game.

Thank you for comments. I've fixed player statistics reinitialization after game over. I'm working o other issues, but there are hard to replicate

When I saw this cart I half expected Eiffel 65 - Blue to be the soundtrack :D I enjoyed this breakout clone. I too enjoyed the aiming mechanic. Nice work.

I had in plans to add this piece to the game, but i still hesitate. Maybe as a background for credits screen.

becomes much funnier atfer you get several bonuses

I still don't understand why my ball gets speedy gonzales sometimes there is too much stuff on the screen and it's hard to follow the ball though

BUG: if you quickly complete the level when you have a timed bonus, you will get it forever
So I had all bonuses forever and could win without launching my ball (just using the multiballs to do all the job)

Thank you for testing and good comments.
I've fixed bug related to the timed bonus.
For time to time ball could speed up due to lack of velocity vector normalization. It provides some surprising randomness to the game, i will keep it so far (definitely not by design:) )

P#51270 2018-04-03 13:26 ( Edited 2018-04-03 17:26)

i think you should make the ball speed slow when starting the game, and the longer you keep it alive, the speeder it becomes

also the more you use bonus, the quicker the ball too

and there could be a way to reset the speed

I can't get past 15, when I beat it it just loops back.

I like the game. It's fun and simple. Good job. I like the power ups.
