Well it's an ipod touch game so normally you move by tilting or swiping9I just use arrow keys :P ). All the levels are quite long and just have wall blocks, green, grey, purple and blue blocks.
You bounce uncontrollably the whole time(after hitting a block). If you hit the wall block, you just bounce away. But the green, grey, purple and blue blocks break. Hitting the blue and purple blocks improve your score. The grey block is just a nothing block, it just stands in the way basically but can be broken. When you go trough the level you must break all the green blocks before the time runs out. So when you break the last green block you win that level.

In my version I don't think I'll add the purple and blue blocks yet. I'll have the grey(lightgrey on calc) and green blocks(darkgrey on calc). And for the rest there'll be still the wall block.

As I said I'm planning to have random levels for now at least to save space and time. And maybe make one level quite long and have a timer counting down. Every time you break a darkgrey block it adds time to the timer. If you get to the end of the level before the time runs out you win.
^Thats what I'm planning.
So yeah. Also you can find youtube vids of The Game. :)

Thanks a lot!
Actually one bug is quite visible on the screenshot. If you are moving and you hit the edge of a brick/stone/block(whatever) it doesn't break.
Also, I changed that the goal of the game currently is to get a higher highscore every time.
You can also move left by the way, which you don't see in the screenshot, just so the people watching know that. ;)

Also every time you play it's a new random level. Reaching the end in time isn't too hard, but getting an epic highscore, now that's a challenge. :D

Also thanks again Nick for the screenie. :D
