Entering the TOP 100!
Graphics Evolution GIF - and Indievelopment
Description
Release date: Q1-Q2 2014
Take classic Breakout, add stunning 3D graphics and realtime physics. Season with a good pinch of new gameplay. Stir well and you get Caromble! Discover all game worlds, collect the shards, and don't forget to keep improving your high scores.

The game mechanics of Caromble! build upon a well-known foundation that is still rock solid. But not all is as it seems. The camera zooms out and the wall that presented an insurmountable obstacle becomes an easy prey. Let's get ready to Caromble!

Features:
  • Realtime physics and three dimensional gameplay (not just 3D art) - it's a first for breakout-style games as far as we can see.
  • Just breaking everything as usual isn't enough: Levels have puzzles and sub-levels to switch between.
  • 24 levels - Increasingly challenging, ranging from puzzle to arcade frenzy
  • Industrial and Metropolitan theme
  • Traditional power-ups like shrinking and growing paddles, extra lives, and multiball
  • More awesome power-ups like canons, slow motion, jumping balls, and more!
  • Control multiple paddles simultaneously
  • Leap Motion support
We consider to release our level editor if there's enough interest from the community.

Caromble! is scheduled for release in Q3 or Q4 2013.

Until then our team of indie-game enthusiasts will meet every Friday - to use our free time to work on the game.

This looks amazing. I'd have been fine with just a modern Breakout game with 3D graphics, but this art style is really intriguing and you've outdone the genre with the 3rd dimension of interactivity. It's not just 2.5D, and I love it. Can't wait to play.

Instantly thought of Arkanoid. A childhood classic. Like how this looks and feels.
