Default Shatter Alley : A Musical Multitouch Endless Brick Breaker

Update: Shatter Alley hits the App Store tonight, and is already going live in some countries! Promo codes are below if you want to try the game today!

Hey TouchArcade,

My name is Justin Fic of Dojotron, a one-man independent game studio in Las Vegas. I'm happy to announce and reveal my first game for iOS, called Shatter Alley.

Shatter Alley is a music-driven reimagination of Breakout for touchscreen devices. Instead of controlling a paddle, you will use your fingertips to hit balls back into play and smash a neverending wall of bricks that is always coming at you.

The game could be quickly described as a mashup between Breakout, Lumines, and Ikaruga. The whole game pulses and beats to music and uses different skins for each track, and balls will penetrate through same-color bricks for huge combos.

Shatter Alley features:
  • • Frantic 3D brick breaking action — designed so any player regardless of skill can enter a heightened state of Flow within seconds and stay there for hours
  • • Gorgeous visual effects hand-choreographed to over 50 minutes of electronic music, ranging from trance to chill and a few tracks that are just wacky
  • • Fully customizable playlist — rearrange the songs you like, disable the ones you don't
  • • Universal App with Game Center and iCloud support
  • • Global statistics, with global achievements.
  • • Distraction free — no IAP, no coins, no upgrades, no missions, no Twitter/Facebook prompts, just 100% pure unadulterated gameplay
Shatter Alley has already been approved by Apple, and will go live this Thursday, April 10. The price will be $2.99 (no IAP.)

Check out the trailer:

I'll be happy to answer any questions you guys have about the game, and would love to hear your comments/feedback. Thanks for checking out Shatter Alley!

Many thanks! There are no powerups in this oneó I had a few planned when I started development but the game worked so well without them that I just ran with it. (I also didn't want to overdesign the game and make it TOO complex, which was the fate of my last project.)

The complexity instead comes from the color matching mechanic, and avoiding hitting the ceiling with balls (which speeds up the game.)

If you'd like to try it out for yourself, I'm including a few promo codes below! Let me know if you snag one and I'd love to know what you guys think of the game.

Enjoy!

Anytime! Hope you guys are digging it.

Just an update that Shatter Alley hits tonight, and is already going live in some countries!




To celebrate, here are a few more codes!

And no one (at least publicly) claimed LJM3FR9NR9W4 from before, so that one might still be worth a shot too.

Enjoy
