Level Design Contest for Breakanoid:

Breakanoid is a fast paced arcade style action packed fun game for the 2600 available for preorder right now in marketplace! You can download the fully functional playable demo from the thread here:

Breakanoid was tremendous fun to write, particularly when it came to designing the levels. There are so many creative contributors on the forum with excellent designs I thought I would host a design contest for an alternate level set to ship along with the release.

I'm also planning to include a level editor, but for this contest any design idea can be shared from graph paper to drawing programs. I will post a few screenshots of the levels for inspiration.

Everyone who participates in this contest is a winner and can have the game for half off!

Looking forward to collaborating on the new level set!

I made an Arkanoid screensaver a few years ago called Breakanoid. Aren't we original :D

Thanks rockfistus!

The alternate level design contest is underway! This design by tremoloman has such a great theme it's also featured as an illustration in Breakanoid's instructions:
