This was my first ever “ludum dare” although it being a mini LD. I did this as a preperation for the real LudumDare 34. In this type of contest you get 2 weeks for creating your submission and are allowed to use all tools/existing code and assets you want.
The topic was “Fusion” which resulted in alot. After some brain storming I decided on Tetris and Breakout. I fused them by creating a basic Tetris game with your task being to clear as many rows as possible. The only problem is that my piece shapes are a bit unsual. To make up for this you get a falling/bouncing ball that allows you to destroy unwanted tiles in a breakout fashion.
The game can be played in singleplayer or cooperational mode by letting 2 different people control each of the games.
