Hey everyone. In a timespan of 2 weeks, I developed a second game to test my skills out because my first game didn’t really went well as expected. Blockable was created with the feedbacks from my first game so I focused quite a lot more on the gameplay and control aspect of the game.

It’s a simple game where you mainly use your mouse to defend incoming enemy orbs from getting to your own orb. As you survive, you will get access to a few more objects that will help you survive even longer. It features a simple in-game achievement system and autosave, both which I’m proud of because my first game didn’t have those. So what do you think about the game? Honest feedbacks and suggestions are appreciated!

Nice job! I only played one round, but it certainly won’t be my last!

Seems to be a hard, multi-tasking game, but with practice, I feel I could become better. My first instinct is to request an option to change controls; I’d like to be able to move the ”barrier’ with “A” and “D” and then move the ‘Collector’ with the mouse. To me, that would feel more natural as a newbie…

Also, I recommend you create an account on itch.io and Gamejolt, and upload your games there (for free or suggested donation) to reach a larger audience. Both make the process fairly easy just like Kongregate.

Hello there BinaryBeal, thanks for playing it!

Yes, it’s a multi-tasking game that you’ll learn to master after quite a few rounds. I’ll think about adding an option to change control as your idea is definitely a good idea. I was going to try uploading some of my games to GameJolt, but I decided that maybe it was better to you know, try making some more games rather than learning their API but now that you said the process is easy, I’m definitely thinking about it. I haven’t really heard of itch.io before but it seems like another good website to publish my games so I’ll see what happens in the next few weeks and I might make a version for those websites too.
