Physics-based ball and brick game written in LUA

This is a version of the classic brick-breaking game written in LUA, making use of the LÖVE game framework. It is written for LÖVE 0.11.3.


  • physics-based brick breaking game
  • up to two player simultaneous
  • hand-coded physics with freely movable player bat, (in)elastic collisions, gravity etc.

Player 1 controls with the mouse or gamepad 1 or wasd plus ctrl.
Player 2 controls with cursor keys plus shift for turbo, or gamepad 2 (any button is turbo).

A .love file for use with Love2D on any platform can be downloaded below. On many platforms, after Love2D is installed, you can double-click any .love file to automatically run the game. Pre-packaged executables for Windows (.exe installer), MacOS (.dmg installer file), and Switch (.nro file for cfw) are also available below.

Pre-packaged Android files (.apk package) are currently only available for a previous release, v20, which used Love 0.10. You can find those files here:

To compile from source under Windows, simply drag the src directory onto Love.exe version 0.11.3. For more information on LÖVE, visit
