It is pretty solid but it runs into a few issues. The paddle controls poorly, and i am hit with a bug with causes it to instantly move to the right at the beginning of a level. Sometimes the controls stick as well causing me to lose control. The ball physics need work as well, as the ball will hit a block dead on and bounce horizontal. I have also experienced the ball hitting the wall so much that it turns back without hitting the block. It also goes a tad fast some times but i prefer challenge. Also the paddle seems to function like a rectangle causing the ball to just bounce out of screen if you hit it by the smallest margin on the side. Even with liking a challenge, the fact that you have to do a perfect run to complete a level is annoying.
Overall I think its fine but needs a lot more polish to be considered a good game.

paddle controls like an ice cube

Good start for a game! I'm a big fan of breakout style gameplay so I think this could be really good!

My issue is that the physics in the game didn't feel great. The way the paddle builds acceleration as it moves feels more like an input delay which was a bit frustrating.

The same goes for the ball physics. At times it would bounce near horizontally, leaving me just waiting for nearly 20 seconds before I could bounce it again. Other times it was so fast that keeping up with it using the delayed paddle felt nearly impossible. (and this was level 1)

My other note would be that on a computer screen, you can't see the whole game at one time which makes it hard to play too.

I think the graphics are cool - if you playtested it more and got the game feel right I think this could be a lot of fun!

I Like The Design Of It, Nice Sound As Well Especially With The Echo Effects And Fade, It Works Really Well With The Game Look And Style, But I'm Still Bad At Brick Breaker Games So I Can't Get Past Level 1 Still

not bad, but I'm not a fan of the lazy controls.
