Re: Pit Bricks – Blockout remake exclusively for Android

Nice one!

I can't download apps from non-PlayStore on my phone (business phone), but keep it going, maybe I can download it soon :-)

Best regards,

Re: BlockOut2 in Guinness Wold record book

Just realized you have to upload a video. I don't normally film myself while playing Block Out 2, so probably not going to happen :-(

Re: BlockOut2 in Guinness Wold record book

Great idea :-)

I don't have the time at the moment to win the credibility points, but it would be great!

Re: "Soft drop" in BlockOut or BlockOut2 ?

I, personally, wouldn't want Block Out rules or game mechanics to be changed to be honest.

All the best,

Re: Blockout should be recognised as a E-sport

Sounds like a great idea :-) Don't you think that the audience and the player community are simply too small for such an event? 3D Mania is currently played by two players who can reach 200K+ scores. If one doesn't show up, the other one is immediately the winner. But maybe an event would get some p...

Re: Set up the blockout2 code online?

Hmm, for C++ I don't know of any services. Maybe something like https://www.gitpod.io/ (50h/month/user free) is helping you out?

Re: Try my online BlockOut version

I'd also like to know if there are more people out there playing this game, but I think there aren't that many...and those of us who do, are "oldschool" PC gamers.

Re: Try my online BlockOut version

I think it's great you're investing time to bring Block Out to other platforms. Still, this forum is rarely used and I think you won't get much feedback from here.

I for myself only play on my computer, so I'm not of much help, sorry!

Re: BlockOut2 online with points upload

I'm myself a software developer and can tell you that it's not going to be simple to transform this SDL-based program into a web application. Or in other words: the GFX-part will probably need to be completely rewritten. Don't want to be the bad guy here, but without a good web game developer who ha...

Please remove cheat scores

There are obvious cheat scores in the online ranking:

1st place Flat Fun: 0 Lines but 500K points
1st place Flat 3x3x18: 7 Lines but 1M points

Thanks!

Re: Update on Blockout2 ?

Vienna, Austria - yep, central Europe. My biggest rival is probably Andres CR and he is, my best guess is he's from CR, the check republic - also central Europe ;-)

Re: Why only 36 gamers on " Out of control "

World ranking is an average of your 5 best games in the last two years. In other words: you have to have 5 games in the last two years to be on that list. Block Out is not played by that much people :)

Re: Update on Blockout2 ?

You can download the source code from http://www.blockout.net/blockout2/ (second link). Don't think they have a GitHub page yet.
