Comet Ball is a space themed Breakout game which includes:

☺ Mouse controlled movement
☻ 50 Levels
☺ 5 bosses
☻ Power-ups (including lasers)
☺ Code system so you can pick up where you left off

Please Note that this is my first game, and many of my graphics and sounds are from the MMF2 library. Please do not let the fact that this is a breakout game keep you from downloading!

By the way the bar at the top is your laser storage. Hold right click to fire. Code for everything: 9e`+ just so you people can see my bosses which are on levels 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50. Thank you for playing!

Not workin, please save the pictures as a /jpg/png or gif file the service you are using for your pictures is not displaying them and wants you to download them. To get more people playing your game you should fix this.

I think your problem is that MediaFire has a strange storage system that doesn't allow for direct linking. Also, they're bitmaps, so they're much bigger than they need to be. You should use a direct-link friendly site such as for hosting your images, and you should also convert them to JPG or PNG so they aren't anywhere near as big. A quick google search will turn up a program to convert the filetype if you would prefer not to use MS Paint's quality-destroying 'save as JPG' feature.

EDIT: Didn't see Rikus' post... I'm pretty much just repeating what he said. Still, the link for photobucket is there, you'll probably want to use it.

Ok They should be working perfectly now. By the way I have added new backgrounds then the ones on the screenshots.

Really good breakout game!
I guess it's a bug that you get double powerups each time you find one while having two balls, but that's no big deal, since it's a bonus for the player anyway. Overall, the game felt very solid and fun.

That's not really a bug, it was an accident at first but I decided to keep it because that way you can get 100's of balls, and it's different. Anyways thanks for playing zezard!

This is pretty decent! Powerups seem to be generated from the balls themselves rather than the blocks you destroy though. I had two balls, then each ball dropped a double ball powerup, and then the four balls dropped a double ball powerup, and next thing I know it was freaking crazy time. Good stuff. There's so many powerups I don't even know what half of them do. And what does that gradient blue bar at the top mean?

A few things I noticed though, when you have the magnet powerup, if you touch just one ball then all of your balls are returned to you. Maybe include a 'pick one of' event or use an internal flag to make sure it's just the one that you touch.

Another thing, you seem to lose a life no matter which ball hits the bottom. You should change it so that you only lose a life if your last ball is lost. Other than that, good stuff! Superb for a first game.

Thanks Rick! Everything except the part about losing a life when any ball hit's the bottom is true (when last ball destroyed - lose life)

A bit rough around the edges but it's pretty good fun to play and thats more important than anything else (imo)
I did get an insane amount of powerups appearing at once and i must have collected too many skulls at once because before i knew what was happening i died! Well, Good work.

Hmm, there seems to be a bug, when you fire a ball away with the magnet powerup, it fires any other balls away too regardless as to where they are on screen,

Ah, Andy's comment made me realize what must have happened... I must have collected a skull. So I guess the last ball thing does work.
