Delete RANDOMIZED PATTERNS of blocks and CONTROL GRAVITY to match 4 or more blocks of the same color vertically or horizontally! YOU DECIDE which way the blocks fall - down, up, left, or right - by clicking on the direction buttons. Matches load your SPACE SHIP with AMMO to shoot BRICKS OF DOOM that are ever seeking to destroy you! A challenging game that will frustrate you and might make YOU drop a brick!

CONTROLS: Move mouse to position the highlighter, click mouse button to delete blocks and to press gravity direction buttons.

Made in my spare time over a period of 6 weeks.

took me a while to figure out what to do but after that it was pretty fun to try and match up things to shoot. It was pretty hard in some spots due to the way you remove blocks making you need to have another of the blocks you shoot show up. I wish i had a bit more control of what way i can remove blocks on the next turn.

Those are very good points. I'm thinking maybe of changing it so the player has a choice between 2 or maybe even 3 different shaped "block removers" on each turn.

The way a brick appears on each turn IS pretty annoying. I could change it so that doesn't happen, but I still need a way for the player to lose the game if they keep doing a lot of bad moves. I will need to think a bit more about how I might do that. Thanks for the feedback. It really helps me to improve my games. :)

It's an interesting idea, and it's very well executed. However...It turns out to be really difficult! I'm not sure how long I could even play it...

I agree. It is too difficult, and needs some more work. Thanks for the feedback.
