This weekend, my artist convinced me to participate in a 1 hour game jam. To prepare for the real game jam, I decided to test my skills by making a Breakout clone that I call OutBreak. I was amazed at what I could get done in only an hour from scratch. The core game is typical with mouse controls. You clear the blocks and go up a level that makes more blocks. Its more than a blunt rip off of the game, because to speed things up an extra ball spawns for every block you hit. This is good and bad, because the game becomes far too easy. The challenge here is getting a score, because the amount of balls you have left at the end of each level will add to your score.
Here is the full hour of making the game complete with all the pit falls and road blocks.
