We got inspired to make this game due to the original game itself. As children, our group used to play Brick Breakers all the time. To rekindle those long-lost memories, we decided to make our own Brick Breakers game.
What it does
The game we made is just a remake of the original. You can control the paddle by pressing the left and right arrow keys. Your main goal is to break all the bricks to win the game. However, if you let the ball fall below the screen, you will lose.
How we built it
We built the game using a mix of many components. We used multiple classes, we created and used objects, arrays, etc.
Challenges we ran into
We had a hard time grasping the concept of 2-D Arrays. Nevertheless, after watching a couple of videos from YouTube, we understood right away how we would incorporate them into our game.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
As beginners, our group is proud that we actually made a good game in such a short period of time.
What we learned
We learned how beautiful coding really is. Just how diverse the field of Computer Science is. In terms of our project, we primarily learned how to work with a 2-D Array.
What's next for Brick Breaker!
Our next step is to find a way to randomize the colour of all the bricks. On top of that, our group desires to add several more levels to the game.
