Smash and Grab

Genre: Bat And Ball Downloads: 56

The is a Demo version of Smash and Grab, based on the classic Breakout.
This is my first game. I thought I would just see what type of response it gets.
If you don't like breakout games then dont download this.
Use the arrows keys for left and right, and the space bar to fire / launch ball.
This demo has 3 levels and a bonus room.

Comments welcome

Nice for your frist game, the gfx are good, tho for my likeing the ball moves to fast ;) but that might just be me.

I think what it is, it that the control of the bat by the arrows keys is what makes it hard, if I could get it to be controlled by the mouse it think the ball speed would be OK.

For your first game, nice try! Bugs/suggestions/comments: - The resolution could be something to do with the file size - 800x600 isn't really necessary for a game like this. - The graphics are quite nice, although there could be a more interesting background than plain black. - I think there should be a bit more explanation of the different types of brick. - It would be useful if you could control the direction of the ball depending on where it hits the bat. - When you get rockets, it becomes too easy to suddenly get loads of bonuses, if you fire them constantly. - If you get the big bat bonus while you're next to the right side of the play area, you get stuck. - At the beginning it says you can click the left mouse button to start, as far as I can see this doesn't work. I hope I haven't sounded too negative, it's a nice game!
