Blitz Breaker

screen322x572-22 screen322x572-23

iTunes Description

Blitz Breaker is a simple, accessible twitch platformer with one small change: Your character can't run. Play as an adorable little robot named Blitz, where your goal is to escape the factory you were built in. The problem is that it seems like everything is trying to break you! That is, with the exception of Chip: A friendly computer helper who is totally your friend!

The gameplay is as simple as it is satisfying. Blitz can only jump, and perform an air dash in one of 4 directions. Upon colliding with an object that doesn't break you, you are free to dash again. Use this to navigate a variety of challenges and hazards, including spikes, cannons, missiles, lasers, mines and even giant mechanical monsters.

Featuring challenging but fair difficulty, the skill lies in your timing, and ability to react. Perfecting these skills grants you stars, which are used to unlock additional heads to dress Blitz up in. Your ability to search and explore can lead you to secrets, and keys to portals harboring even greater challenges.

    Lots of retro pixel style games this week. I know many people don't like them, but this looks like a good week for me!

  • http://matt-curtis.me/ Matt Curtis

    Thanks for the writeup, Jared!

  • Rothgarr

    Any chance TouchArcade can bring back the old format where you mostly embedded videos instead of just a screenshot in these updates? And while you are at it can you allow fullscreen videos? it always takes an extra click to go to youtube to be able to watch videos in full screen (on a computer, that is)

    • http://twitter.com/JaredTA Jared Nelson

      Regarding videos in the Out Now post, there's just too many games each week now and the video embeds were screwing up when loading for a lot of people. Typically there's a video for each game in the first post of the forum threads, if that helps.

      About allowing fullscreen, we use generic [youtube] tags which apparently don't include the option for fullscreen. Youtube has their embed tags that do allow for that, but they've always worked screwy with our wordpress setup and app. However, it's been a while since we've tried so I gave it a shot again. Please check out an article about a game called Infinity Duels and tell me if the video in that post does what you want it to do. If nothing goes screwy I'll try to make a point to use the stuff from now on.
