MacBrickout

Hi folks,


I just wanted to announce that my upcoming iOS game, MacBrickout will be released on May 22nd.

It's a fun (and challenging) ball & paddle breakout-style game. The best in its genre if you ask me (but I'm a little biased).

I designed this game to be beaten. There are only 27 levels and if you can get through them all you'll get a cool reward at the end. It has over 80 minutes of original music composed by 16-year old Danny Burns.

Scattered throughout the levels, there are hidden fruits and vegetables. You can unhide them by hitting musical bricks in sequence or by catching a rare fruit capsule. Once you catch a fruit or veggie, you get to keep it for life! It will always appear in the sand below your paddle.

I'm considering handing out some promo codes before release if there is interest.

If you want to follow along, Facebook and Twitter links (and a gameplay video) can be found on my MacBrickout.com website.

So hit the bricks, collect the fruits and beat the game. Do those and you'll have a really fun time with my game!

Thanks!

I love this game.
I have been beta testing and have reached 2.1M points thus far ... but have not beaten the game in advanced mode.
Let's see who can beat me

I've been beta testing this app for the last 2 months ... can't get a win in the Expert mode ... anyone out there think they can beat me?

You certainly beat my high score. Enjoy it while it lasts. There's probably someone out there that will knock your score off the top slot after the game goes live

Launch coming...

Two weeks until MacBrickout hits the App Store. Starting to get excited.

I'm hoping some people will stick with it long enough to play through all of the levels and see the end.

Can't say I've ever played a breakout game on iOS, but I loved Brickles on my old b&w mac forever ago.

Curious.

Multiplang, you're in for a treat! You'll want to read through the strategy section in the game at some point to get familiar with the different balls and capsules. That way you'll know which ones to avoid.
