Introducing my first game - Fruit Squash! Here is my take on the block breaker game. I chose to theme my game on fruit cubes (like those satisfying images of perfectly cut cubes of fruit) and wanted it to have a fun, fruity, beachy feel which hopefully comes through with the colours chosen and the sprites I designed. I set the game on an empty, calm sandy beach as it reminded me of having fruit on summer vacation and the ball is a volleyball - which seemed to make sense for me.
I went a little further than the course, adding a variety of power-ups and lives to give the player more things to utilise and look forward to. This can of course be taken further and I have plenty of ideas, but for now my knowledge of programming is hindering me. As Rick said in one of the episodes, once I progress through the course I can return to this project with greater knowledge and implement some of these ideas!
For now, I leave you with some screenshots and a link to my game so that you can give it a shot. I hope you enjoy!
Please feel free to provide me with some feedback/suggestions and I look forward to hearing how you found it!
