Additional information

The game was originally uploaded in a public GitHub repository. However, at some point I decided to removed it.

UVIC CRASHER is a remake of the classic Breakout by Atari. I decided to create a singleplayer and a multiplayer mode that at first may look like they are exactly the same but they have slight differences. For example in the singleplayer mode, the ball every time it hits anything will change its apperance randomly. On the other hand, the multiplayer mode since it has a smaller screen and it is harder to track the ball, the ball does not change its appearance.

To not make the game infinite, I implemented a mechanic that whenever the ball hits anything, it will gain speed.
