Heracross Brick Break

Here's a pokemon-themed arkanoid clone I created! It combines the traditional Arkanoid formula, the powerup system from Raiden, and the clock pressure of Crazy Taxi into an experience that's not quite as fun as any of those. Ha ha! But it was my very first game! So, I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it.

This game its quite neat, and can be pretty challenging once you get the hang of it. It would be nice to consider adding some music and let the player know they can shoot more than once. Cool graphics and concept, Good Work!

Why Heracross though?

argonvile responds:

Thanks, it gets pretty insanely hard where you really need to rely on the Powerups and keep track of which ones come more often and stuff like that.

Thanks for your feedback, I agree music would be a good enhancement and adding some kind of a brief tutorial. For the most part I thought the concept was simple enough that people would just click the game and move the mouse and understand it intuitively. And I think most players will accidentally launch a second ball at some point and it will blow their mind. Ha ha. I think that's good enough.

But -- yeah, if I were revisiting this game, I might just have Heracross give a hint like, "You can launch as many balls as you like! Just keep clicking" if you clear a level with only one ball.
