I like this game, the gameplay is generally smooth and not awkward, but the ball bounces sometimes ended up reversing direction inexplicably. Other than that, I like the concept, and it adds an "exploration" element to the traditional breakout formula.

I really like it. :) 
Nice oldschool flavour but not dusty. ^^
Ball-Physics could be better. 
But overall i had a lot of fun. :)

I like it! The theme interpretation is good, but i think it's missing more elements on the breakout part

Developer

Yeah I am trying to resolve that but I'm  no sure how. Thank you for the kind words. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ

It's a fun idea, but I didn't think the two genres were mixed very well. It felt like two separate games

Developer

Thank you ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ I understand what you mean. I was thinking one way of fixing that is instead of having a paddle you can swing your sword to bounce the ball. I hope to try and implement that soonish.

The music is little bit agressive but the mix of genres is interesting !

Thank you ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ I wanted to do the music myself, but ran out of time. Not sure what direction I want to take the music in, but I know this is definitely not it.

I like the aesthetic and general feel of this a lot. In terms of style and graphics and audio I think it's very solid. To be entirely frank though the gameplay is currently very basic and boring. Would love to see what you could do to give the player more to do and more control and make it more challenging.

Developer

Thank you ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ. That's to be expected. This is still a very only prototype that I only entered to get more eyes on it. Once I have the actually breakout part the way I want it, I thought it be nice to implement power ups in the form of items (such as a boomerang or bow/arrow).  Not sure how they can be used, but I'm sure I'll think of something.

Interesting mix of genres. My main issues are he ball sometimes bounce in random directions and I don't feel like I have control over where the ball will go after hitting paddle.

Developer

Thank you ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ.  The ball physics are definitely top priority for the next update. I've been having a lot of difficulty getting them to work as intended.
