New version 0.7 😎!

Now there is a title screen with music!

It doesn't play too well in the web emulator, at least with my laptop. It's fine with the native emulator (on Windows 10).

Can anyone try? If it's not playing on the "tryout" web emulator, I'll disable the intro music by default and upload a new version.

I'm pretty pumped that I managed to play music - and to find a royalty free VGM file. Thanks to Meits (www.meits.nl) the composer.

Thanks a lot 🙂 - then it's probably my browser or something else...

And it was also a lot of fun to code this...

  1. Download the ZIP file:
  2. Unpack ZIP file into the same directory as the emulator.
  3. Start the emulator.
  4. LOAD"BRIXX.PRG"
  5. RUN

This is very polished-looking and sounding! Pretty much just as much fun as the original Breakout. Do you plan to share the source code at any point?

Thanks a lot 🙂. And yes, I'll share the code, as soon as I've cleaned it up. It's already improved, but not yet ready.

New version 0.8.

longer title music
This now loads a full music track into banked ram. Now it's even more difficult to get this song out of your head 😉

more variation on sound effects
The ping sound effects when the ball hits a brick is now slightly varied, so it doesn't sound so repetitive :-).

joystick support
on the title screen you can now select the controller. Joystick is emulated by cursor keys, fire button is the enter key. I initially also planned a keyboard option, but left it out because it wasn't reliable and the keyboard pause/repeat got in the way.

more levels
added one and also modified the 2nd one - it just was too boring.

Also added some error handling for missing BIN files etc. Did some bug fixing, too (memory overflow in one place... ups).

New Version 1.0

Yes - I consider this game complete as of now 🙂.

  • Powerups now appear at the spot the last brick disappeared.
  • Added one last bonus level with the X16 logo

Works on emulator R37 and R38.
