Liking the new control options, but still no sound effects when the blocks break?

Still makes the game feel a little 'empty' to me, will this be added in a future update?

I decided against sound for now, cause one it's really hard to find a sound that'll fit well, and two, while waiting I'd have to hold back an update with the new controls and stuff, so figured might as well push this update since it's done

Sound is still planned, just not what, as well as the graphic changes for colour blindness or to help with disambiguation of colours.

So I guess might as well ask, what kind of noise do you guys think would fit for the blocks landing and shattering?
shattering - glass? or fireworks?
touching noise? no idea

An add on question is do you think I should tie the sound effects to the game music, ie if you play your own music you don't hear the effects, or have it so it can mix?

have them separate so people can choose to keep the sound effects even though they're listening to their own music
