Second Game in the Classics Series: Breakout

For the sake of learning and game dev practice, I've embarked on a journey to recreate the original classics that defined 2D gaming. These are:  

  1. Pong [DONE, 1 week project]
  2. Breakout [DONE, 3 week project]
  3. Asteroids
  4. Galaga
  5. Frogger
  6. Boulderdash
  7. Pac-man
  8. Gauntlet
  9. Super Mario Bros.

With this project, I made sure to follow the "proper" game development routine: Starting with analyzing the source material and paper prototyping, followed by project management and source control integration, and completing the project on a set schedule. It was supposed to be a 2-week game, but it had more complex polish issues than I originally expected, so ended up being a 3-week game. Overall, with each new game completed, I gain more confidence in my abilities and learn to use all my individual skills in a cohesive manner for a full game project.
