I always liked Buster, the human-analog "crash test dummy" used on Mythbusters for various myth tests. But we are not here to bust myths today, just bricks.

Remember the Golden Age of the Arcade, around the 1980s or so? It was a pacman-eat-dot industry, where a game that didn't earn a quarter every three minutes got removed and replaced. So, the games were built to have lights and sounds to attract the player, and then to challenge the player enough that he's likely to lose the game...fast. Still, from time to time, a player would do really well and get on the high score list and then type a swearword for his initials or something.

Buster! is of this type (but no high score list). You cannot blink or you lose! Can you play a full three minutes? At least you don't have to keep feeding it quarters....

7 levels, a long sound loop of seven songs adjoined (two from the web, five original), and various win/lose/brick hit/brick broke sounds.

This game was a class project for the Udemy course at https://www.udemy.com/unitycourse .

Nice game, love the Start and Gae Over screen's, I might steal that idea lol. One criticism is the ball is too slow, only the weird bounces off the walls make it challenging
