Brick Breaker

This is my very first project for Mediaheads, called Brick Breaker.

This game is created to serve as a mini game for the bigger Suitcase full of games project. When a player completes one of the various games from the Suitcase full of games, they are rewarded by being able to play one of three minigames, one of which is Brick Breaker. Including me, three trainees got the task to develop three different mini games. Because the audience of the Suitcase full of games is children with mental disabilities, the minigames were not allowed to use score or levels. Scores and levels could cause the player to get the feeling of failure and the goal of the minigames is to give the player a rewarding feeling after completing tasks/games from the suitcase full of games. Brick Breaker is a minigame that can be played forever. If the player is not able to keep the ball in play, the player will instantly get a ball back without getting a penalty. When all the blocks are destroyed, new blocks will spawn for the player. For every block the ball hits the ball changes colour e.g. if the ball hits a red block the ball's colour will change to red.

After completing the Suitcase full of games, Mediaheads decided not to use the minigames. The Suitcase full of games outgrew its expectations and no longer needed minigames.

Even though the minigames were cancelled, I enjoyed working on it, because for the first time ever I developed a game in commission of a legitimate company.
