Bounding Box is a Breaking Out game slash ball maze for the PC, currently in development by Ray Ayanami. It is currently being developed in the C# language for a school project, but it is possible that it may be fleshed out into a personal project.
The game is comprised of a number of stage. On each stage, the player guides a ball through a maze from the start to the end by using tools like paddles (not unlike those from Breakout) and cannons, all while keeping it out of hazards like bumpers and electric fields of death.
Download link to the binary files to come sometime within the next month or two. As much as the author wishes to make it open-source, since it is a school project, doing so would open the door to getting destroyed for academic integrity violations.
Bounding Box will contain examples of the following:
- Breaking Out
- Goddamned Bats: Bumpers.
- Obvious Beta: Most likely due to the fact that there's a due date on this project. And Word of God hates deadlines.
- One-Hit-Point Wonder: If the ball touches an electric field, you lose one life.
