A new html5 game space break



Play it now

Space Break

Space Break is a html5 acrade 'ball and paddle' game written in coffee-script. It features levels full of explosives, extra balls and even nukes. I hope you will enjoy it.

History

Space Break started out as coffee-break - a little project I did to get into coffee script. Because it turned out to be a lot of fun I decided to turn it into a complete game.

Technology

Space Break uses the canvas tag for rendering. The sound effects were created using csound and played using the audio tag. The graphics were made using the gimp and blender. Rake is used for controlling the asset pipeline. All the assets of the game (music, sounds, graphics) are self made - programmer art.

Browsers

Firefox 4 (3.6 kind of works), Chrome 9 and Safari (no ogg - no audio) work. Opera is crashy. Mobile safari on the iPad also works but the frame rate is low. Could be fixed with a bit of optimization.

Source and License

The code and assets are of course on github.

The Sourcecode (break.coffee, Rakefile) is licensed under the GPL V3.

The assets are licensed as Creative Commons BY NC SA

PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU DO SOMETHING COOL WITH IT.

If the licensing doesn't work for you, please let me know.
