EDIT: Wow, thanks for the daily second! I wasn't expecting much from this submission, considering I made it in only two and a half hours or so. I'd like to thank my friends for voting for me, without them I wouldn't have received the award. Thanks again!


I made this clone of the classic Atari Breakout game in TGF2. I hope it's enjoyable. Please be patient while waiting for it to load, as the filesize is large.

I don't even know where I was going with this. I started out earlier today finally going through the tutorial of TGF2 after I saw TomFulp posted a notice about a winter contest for it. This isn't my winter contest entry, but moreso myself just learning how to use the program and doing basic tasks. I'm not sure how I got the whole Parthenon idea either, but whatever.

I'd like to thank Ockeroid and pyroguy-37 for making their music available for my use by having it in the audio portal, I was stumped for a while on which tracks to choose.

The main menu image is a picture taken of the Parthenon in Greece, the gameplay background is a sketch of the Parthenon from mlahanas.de, and the high scores background is a picture of the Parthenon replica in Tennessee. The pillars used in the gameplay as borders are from shutterstock.com. I do not claim to own any of these images and give credit to their respective owners. All other graphics and images were drawn by me. The "DUN DUN DUN" sound upon viewing the high scores menu is titled Shock and Horror by Dick Walter from Ren And Stimpy Production Music Vol. 2. Thank you.


Pretty sweet

I like the music, I wasn't really expecting this for the game though.... You should think about making options for the ball to move at different speeds...

People find this review helpful!
IzzyDude responds:

I actually had the ball set to a higher speed setting to balance out the size of the paddle. Might improve this later on but I doubt it's going to be a sensation or anything. And if you like the music, tell the artists themselves! I'm sure they'd appreciate it (:
