Gran trabajo!

Very good game, I have reached level 18 :) How many levels are there, does the game have an end?


There's no end. Stages are pseudo-randomly generated. Maybe this better for make competitions. I reached level 25 ; )


Enhorabuena!. Jamás pensé que se pudiese conseguir algo de este nivel en Basic. 

Un saludo!.


Gracias! óÒ,

Lo acabo de probar. Me recuerda mucho al Impact, que tuve de pequeño. Gran juego!


Pues sí, por la disposición de la pantalla quizá? Sin embargo, de Impact no me acaba de gustar el estilo gráfico.

Sí, y por los power-ups, aunque en Impact eran "acumulables".


Ah, sí... es una buena manera de evitar la frustración de no poder capturar un item que cae, ya que de hacerlo te exponías a que se perdiera la bola, como ocurre por ejemplo en los Arkanoid y otros. En el mío a veces quieras o no quieras se recogen y hay que lidiar con eso,... ajo y agua xDDDD


Realmente impresionante lo que has conseguido en BASIC! Enhorabuena!


Really really nice breakout clone. Only thing missing is the possibility to orientate the ball when it hits your racket. Generally there are 5 differents direction and here it seems there is only 2.


You're right, but this is because the graphics technique used.  In return there is two items that can be collected that allows you to deflect the ball at will or displace it when impact the ship.


I haven't considered that indeed. Great achievement and that was really the only little thing I could find :)




Es una pasada! Enhorabuena!


Gracias Nuria!


¡Crack, felicidades!


xDDD Gracias! ; )


Alucinante!! Parece increible que se pueda hacer todo eso en puro Locomotive Basic.



Muchas gracias. Todo el mérito es de la máquina, que es una pasada de buena.


Es fantástico! Felicidades!!


; ) Gracias!!

Not sharing the game itself ? 
Are you waiting till it's more stable or something ?


Hello, I am not sharing the game at the moment, because I am reviewing its playability and difficulty, but I will make it available for download very soon (before the deadline for the presentation of the Jam).

Thank you very much for your interest in it and I apologize for the inconvenience.


Now you can download my game and rate it !!  ; ) Thank you.
