Beautiful Bricks 1.14 Major Update

Beautiful Bricks 1.14 Update

This massive update adds new features, squishes bugs and adds a quality of life improvements.

I have been looking at how people play Beautiful Bricks and thinking on how I can make the game a better experience. This big update reflects most of what I wanted to do with this game. I don't foresee another big update like this coming for Beautiful Bricks. Though I still wish to create a Linux version and create Steam Achievements.

There is also a possibility of the level editor and another set of 192 levels. I might do this but I am thinking of just starting to develop a new project instead!

Thank you to all the players out there of Beautiful Bricks and I hope you enjoy this massive new update.

  • New power up 'Acid Ball'. Collecting a dark green capsule with a light green 'A' will give your paddle an 'Acid Ball' this ball excretes acid on contact which can destroy bricks. The harder the ball hits the farther the acid goes.
  • New power up 'Queue Ball' Collecting a black and white capsule with a blue 'Q' will give your paddle a 'Queue Ball' this reserve ball activates into play when the paddle has lost all its balls.
  • Filters added to the game. Various cool graphical filters. Find this in the Display Settings There is a CRT one but sadly I couldn't get the screen to bulge correctly. (requested by Gendou_kun).

Gameplay Tweaks

Would be a lil bit of work I imagine but a level editor would be ace.

Yeah i agree these types of games should always have a level editor IMO
