About: Dodge the Blox by using the arrow keys, receive power ups by hitting certain Blox, just watch out for the terrible evil Blox! Play 10 challenging levels or use quickplay to play one quick level of your choice with four challenging difficulties to choose from! Want a little more of a challenge? Use custom mode to tweak the difficulty to your liking.

Hehe.. Very fun, cool graphics.

Maby add some sort of score(+ hiscore list), and levels, instead of "you won" <- Would make it more addicting.

It's good, but I noticed 3 bugs in the 4 levels I played:
* First, the cursor on the menu has a hitbox that is too big, because when selecting "Normal", "Extreme" is selected as well.
* Secondly, those grey blox on levels 3 and 4 lost me lives, but losing all my lives didn't lose the game, only after losing all my health did it tell me I'd lost.
* Thirdly, after starting the game a second time, I couldn't choose the skill level I wanted to play on.

Bugs:
-If you lose on level 1, it just restarts the level
-I lost on level 4 and it gave me a "music does not exist" error
-If you do quick play, then select new game, it will be the same setup as quick play

Suggestions:
-Teleport was entirely useless - it's supposed to be a quick save, but having to reach up and grab the mouse was awkward and slow.
-The custom game was a neat option, it just wasn't very descriptive. Like, what is the range for frequency and how many blocks do I have to choose from?

Otherwise, great attempt for a first game. Much more advanced than pong or some other "first game" classic. Keep working, get more experience, and make better and better games!

Well, if you are doing new game, then it is suppose to restart the level if you lose, so you can retry.

Fixed the other bugs you listed in this though.

v1.0 Update 2 - http://www.mediafire.com/?ymznmtmdnoz

Replace the EXEs.

Very nice that you completed this, I enjoyed it pretty much, but I managed to complete a custom game with blox frequency of 0 (like A LOOOOOOT of blox on the screen) with absolutely no problems. I finished it with 2 lives left.

Maybe optimize the game a little more? ^^ Otherwise it was very fun. Screenshot attached.

Haha I did that too. I should've made the life blox a little more random.
