Hi there,

I am new to Java game programming and have made a game for Android using the Java LibGDX framework.
It is a twist on the classic Arkanoid/Breakout concept.
Instead of controlling a paddle at the bottom of the screen, here you directly control the movement of the ball. It is possible(and necessary) to curve and arc the ball in mid-air. It is a simple game with intuitive controls.

Only blue bricks should be hit and red bricks should be avoided as much as possible.
A maximum of three red bricks can be hit per level(hitting red bricks is unavoidable in some levels). Hitting all the blue bricks will clear the level.
Sample Screenshots:

I've published it to the Android Market/Google Playstore just recently.


 Please try it and review it or provide some constructive criticism if you think something can be improved. Thanks.

Cool game!

The gameplay was really smooth and enjoyable, but perhaps a little bit easy Smiley

However, I never got bored when I played it, which is obviously the most important thing!

Unfortunately I had gotten so used to tapping the screen after clearing all the blue blocks to move on to the next level, that when the congratulations-message appeared after level 50 I only saw it for a split second before my fingers automatically tapped it away Sad

Thanks oByhring!!

Yes, I made it a bit easy since players are more used to controlling the paddle instead of the ball.
I thought I would increase/decrease the difficulty later on based on the feedback.

I'm also planning to increase the number of levels in the next update.

Glad that you enjoyed it and thanks for your feedback!!
