BlockBuster - 0.1

Bruno Nyffeler (bnyffele)



The rules are simple: try to 'bust' all blocks (i.e. make them disappear). You win when all blocks are gone, you lose if one block moves beyond the upper edge of the board. You may only click blocks away in groups of at least three equally coloured blocks.

Users may define their own levels (no GUI yet ... they need to change some simple python source code).

After having been programming with Python for quite a while I thought it was about time to create something useful ;-) The fact that I discovered Pygame recently helped that idea quite a bit.

What about the OS X users out there? :D The game looks very nice but we would need the Python sources or a Mac binary to give it a try.

Thanks, Mike. Glad you like it. What would you need the menu for (have you seen the buttons at the bottom)? And what would you want to save (well, it's not documented but in the 'game over' screen you can change levels using the mouse wheel or the cursor keys.

WOW!!!!!! AWESOME GAME! It feels so nice, clean, flashy... perfect! It needs a menu and a save feature, then I'll play for hours! Great job! Keep up the good work!

Yes, there will be a Linux version ... maybe even this week ;-)

Hey Bruno, your game looks very interesting! I would like try it, but i'm a GNU/Linux user and i can't run .exe file. Would you mind to post the source code or a GNU/Linux package?
