    Hi everyone! My name is Max and I'm new to the forums. I've been messing around with game maker for some time now and have finally finished my first game after starting many projects (but not finishing any :oops:). It's available for download on the Android Play Store from the following link:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.extravagames.brickbreakerclassic&hl=en

    Store Description:
    Brick Breaker Classic is inspired by classic games like Breakout and Arkanoid. Try to break all the bricks without dropping the ball into the abyss. There's powerups that randomly spawn after breaking a brick to help you get through the levels. Try your best to get a good score on each level and unlock all the stars. Breaking multiple bricks at a time gives you a combo bonus granting you more points per brick.

    - Completely FREE
    - 35 levels and more in the making
    - 3 powerups available
    - No ads during gameplay
    - Regular updates

    I would love to get some feedback on what you think and how I could improve it. I'll be adding some of the suggestions and fixing any bugs found in future updates.

    Here are some images of the game:

    Any comments, advice, or (constructive) criticism are greatly appreciated. I'd love to hear what you all think. :D

    So last month I finally got around to making a video for the game. I made it in one afternoon and for the time spent on it I'm quite happy how it ended up. Let me know what you think of it and any suggestions on how to improve it.

    Here's the video:

    nice beginning, change the sounds of hitting the bars to real gun shot, when you destroy a bar that release something like a power up, change it like to TNT sound; It will look sooo funny.

    Thanks!

    I released a new update yesterday with a new lightning bolt powerup. I looked in the marketplace to see if I could find something that would let you create it between two points but I couldn't find anything so I ended up making a small script to do that. If anyone is interested in it I could upload to the marketplace.

    Here's a picture, it looks much better in the game once it's moving:
