This is a great game for gamers who love multitask. And I am one of them. Really enjoy it! Thanks!

Reached 3810, really good concept, and extremely well executed. Had no peformance issues and the gameplay was silky smooth. Really nice entry, only downside for me is that it's pretty simple with no upgrades/level layouts or anything interesting besides the main game, that and no sound. The game got very interesting when I was actually destroying Mario's ground lol.

If you could also take a look at our game that'd be awesome:

You can even have a friend helping you out (or would that be cheating  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ )

Awesome work! And great idea on combining platforming with breakout

I tested alone, I'll probably try it again with someone else to play.
But PLEASE don't lock the update of the game to the refresh rate of the screen.
On my 144Hz screen, the game was more than 2x quicker than it's supposed to be :(

Developer

Yes, I noticed that screens having a refresh rate higher than 60Hz make the game faster.

There appears to be a bug in the graphics library I'm using. I'm sry about that and will look into this.

Keep an eye out for changes to https://github.com/bernhardfritz/piksel

Neat :) I did not know this lib

This is really tricky and challenging which stimulates more interest to play. Enjoyed it a lot and as mentioned by other I am one of those who played this game even before the jam has started and loved it!! 

 Do check our game too if your haven't yet 😁, thanks for making the game!! Keep doing !!

This was one of the first games I played this jam but forgot to come back and rate it.

Solid interpretation of the theme! Gameplay for both Mario and Breakout is spot on, as well as the artwork. Really nicely done and it's more than playable - it's pretty fun!

Congratulations on finishing your game :)

Nice idea but so hard to play alone haha.

Reduce ball speed a little bit would be good.

Submitted

Very simple but very effective!
Definitely a good idea ;)

Also, insanely hard alone, haha!

Submitted

That was almost impossible to play alone!

But there is quite some potential for a local multiplayer mode.

Nice. The ball doesn't feel like it bounces off the paddle in the direction I expect. Took some time to figure out what I was supposed to do.

Developer (1 edit)

i'm glad you enjoyed it :) the way it is implemented, some of the velocity of the moving paddle will be transferred over to the ball upon impact

Cool idea
