Breakers Yard Beta Launch!
Breakers Yard Builds 91 - 94: Shops and Weapon Slots
Release date: 2015
Breakers Yard is a dual-stick shooter with automatically combining weapons and a ton of robots to crush.

All nine weapons stack, so if (for example) you pick up TripleShot, DrillShot and BombShot, you shoot all three at once: Triple Exploding Drills. With nine weapons to choose from there are over 500 unique combinations.

Play the latest build here.[]

The enemy robot hoard coming after you are as varied as the weapons: DrillBots that ambush you, PumpBots that inflate you until you explode, and SawBots that hunt you down and cut you to ribbons. Eventually they will overrun you, but your score is immortalized on the leaderboards.

Breakers Yard has been in development for over 18 months, and consistently releases a new build (or two) every week. The latest build can always be found at If you're feeling curious, you can dip into the devlog[] to even play the old builds dating back to the beginning.

Major Existing Features (as of 9/14/14):
  • Nine weapons that all combine with each other: Wave, Triple, Drills, Chainsaws, Ice, Bombs, Magnet, Flame, and Inflated
  • Nine robots that are all trying to kill you
  • Randomly generated levels
  • Online Leaderboards (Each build gets a separate leaderboard)
  • Three power-ups that are permanent (as opposed to weapons which are tied to ammo): Ammo Expansion, Speed Boots, Heart Container

There is still a fair amount of work to be done before Breakers Yard is released sometime in 2015. Here's a partial list of imporvements I'm planning:
  • The weapon systems need tuning, and there are additional weapons I'll be introducing.
  • Non-weapon power-ups recently got introduced. Only three are in to start, more are coming.
  • The sound design is still under construction.
  • The visual design is still under construction.
  • I'll be adding more NPCs to interact with.
  • Boss fights
  • Different environments (besides a junkyard)

Breakers Yard is obviously still in early alpha, but it's already extremely fun, go try it out!

@Lammy Thanks for the feedback! Yup, detecting the correct resolution is still being worked on. For now you should be able to try out other resolutions when the game starts up. Sorry about that! There will be more than one song in the future too.

Played this game at PAX and was a lot of fun, however when I played the beta on my pc at home after playing for it the constant looping of the same song of music drove me insane as well as the clouds that stayed on either side of my screen. I've voted for this game to become a steam game because the idea of this game and itself is fun however their is a lot of stuff that needs to be tweaked about this game although that is expected when regarding a game in beta.
