There Is No Breakout

Author Comments

I recreated the Breakout section of There Is No Game in Unity using assets from the Web (which is why im uploading this to newgrounds lmao) and Steam version. This is also basically the first game I've finished and released so it's not perfect...

This game includes:

  • Reaction of Breakout from There Is No Game
  • 2 different reskins (2015 Web Version and 2020 Steam Version)
  • Change your ball speed
  • Stopwatch for speedrunning and seeing how fast you can clear all blocks
  • A restart button for those intense grinding sessions

I made this for a school assignment, because I love There Is No Game and the developers behind it, and for speedrunners to practice Breakout as that's the most hated and important part of the speedrun. I'm also in the There Is No Game Speedrunning community, and I actually have the World Record in it.

This will be updated in the future, so just stay tuned I guess!

First, thank you for reminding me about There Is No Game. I love the original as I played it here on NG. I didn't even know about the other versions. I will have to check them out as well. As for your breakout, it's very well done. I like the speed change option and have played it on the default speed, as well as maximum and minimum speeds. My ball is currently, very gently, scrollling the screen from the top going left to right in an infinite cycle. But the fact that the bottom paddle is mostly for changing the ball's direction and you don't die and have to reset when you miss said paddle, well that makes all the difference. Nice job!

Not once, but twice did I end up with the ball bouncing infinitely left to right at the very top of the window. Set the speed to ten and then left it a few minutes, but it’s stuck up there alright. I don’t know what other Breakout games do to prevent this but it’s not here and I’m not going to try a third attempt to clear the blocks again.

cool game

Nice brick breaker, retro and recreated from a pre-made game, old as time here. Decent
