A downloadable machine for Windows

BOT-BREAK! is a Paddle Pinball arcade-y experience, made for MechJam III, and designed to somewhat resemble a physical electromechanical game - complete with a cute little dot matrix display.

Destroy the enemy Giant Robot one part at a time, dodge Missiles, get a Shield, launch your MechBall from the Railgun, and activate Hyper Mode to button-mash to victory!

Should be pretty bug-free, though it's probably still possible to get infinitely stuck in collision - that should be extremely rare, though...

Really fun! Would be awesome if there was a score and destroying the mech gave you a jackpot, so that you could keep going and have a leaderboard. Excited to try some of your other games, they look very interesting :)

Xcellent pinball-breakout mashup!


I love the game is very fun and I love the pixel art style you use is very NES style. 

I would like the game to be longer. 

Thanks :) I'll probably end up making another game in this style, but with all I've learned from the feedback on this one, and playing some actual video pinball in my spare time, etc - keep an eye out

optimize the game for 32 bit pls. (oh and aslo for some reason i made the game run on my 32 bit pc but after i wanted to play it again the game was crashing)

Linux version? Saw a video of it, and it looks cool...if only I could play it.


I enjoyed this a lot. Any plans to expand upon this?


very fun pinball game


Made a video


This was such a fun pinball style game. Great work! 

Thanks for playing, glad you got the hang of it in the end :)
