Work in Progress

This is a small Arkanoid like ball breaker game for the LowResNX. On the current version, only the level 1 to 3 are available, and there is no start menu, but the work is still in progress πŸ™‚. Any collaboration is welcome

Very cool game ...well done :D

Jeanmilost, Incredible work! The graphics, sound effects, and in particular the music, are very reminiscent (almost exactly like) the original Arkanoid game! If memory serves me correctly that game was done by TAITO? πŸ€” The same company that introduced us to Space Invaders, Bubble Bobble, Bionic Commando and dozens of other titles over the years. This looks like being an excellent conversion! πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘

Very well done! Just one thing:
I don’t remember if the original game had it, but do you plan to make dynamic angles? Now you cannot really affect the balls route.

Really nice game

Here is a version with Dynamix added... if you like it you are free to use it :D

Thank you very much for all these positive returns :-) It is very encouraging, and turn me motivated to continue this development, even if at the beginning I just wanted to do a simple exercise before starting more personal projects (if time permits me).

@Roger Davis yes the game was originally developed by Taito, and ported on computers like the Amstrad CPC by Imagine, which is the version I retained as working model, due to its simplicity and excellent quality for a 8 bit adaptation.

@Timo you're right, there are dynamic angles on the arcade version, and I at least planned the possibility to add a such feature, as the used values for the offsets are floating points. But I need to checkout the arcade emulation to see how it all works :-D

@was8bit thank you for the Dynamix version, I'll try it as soon as possible.

Here is the math.... feel free to tweak as needed :)

Very cool, love tiny dots effects :)

.. the left paddle edge still misses though...

@was8bit Thank you for the bug report, I'll check that as soon as possible

was8bit 2020-03-04 05:06

Its a really fun game :)

was8bit 2020-03-19 09:03

Timo 2020-03-19 09:19

I agree, it looks very professional!
