Physics
Brick Inventions is a physics based strategy/building game. Basically, you have a large variety of different blocks which you can place in the world to build almost everything you can imagine. The special feature of the game is that every single block has physics - everything you build can be destroyed completely.

Strategy
In the game, each player has a crown on a podium. If the crown falls to the ground, the player loses the game. To prevent this from happening, you have to build defenses and weapons out of blocks. This requires resources, which you get by transporting resource-blocks from a producer to a warehouse. Each producer and warehouse has a special object on a podium (like the crown). If such an object falls to the ground, the producer/warehouse loses all of its upgrades.

Inventions
Since everything is created out of blocks, it may take long to build things that are more complex. The Inventor-mode enables you to create your own inventions out of bricks, which you can save and then place in singleplayer-, multiplayer- and sandbox-games like any other block. Invent a new machine, more efficient weapon or more powerful defences - the better your ideas, the better are your chances of winning a multiplayer game or mastering a challenge in a singleplayer game.

Single & Multiplayer
Brick Inventions offers both a singleplayer- and a multiplayer-mode. The singleplayer-mode consists of different levels, each featuring a different kind of challenge. The multiplayer-mode enables you to play against players all over the world. In order to win a game you do not only need to have a good strategy, but also powerful inventions - defend your crown and shoot down those of your enemy.

Sandbox
In the sandbox mode you can build everything you want without limits. Sandbox maps can be saved so you don't have to worry to lose anything you've created.

0 comments by BrickInventions on Sep 23rd, 2014

I've uploaded the second part of the gameplay series in which I go through two of the singleplayer levels and also explain how to inventor mode works and how to use it.

If you have missed part one, here is a list with the links to the videos of all parts:
· Part1: Blocks & Positioning
· Part2: Singleplayer & Inventor mode
· Part3: Multiplayer (Coming soon)

Those who follow the game on twitter might have already seen that I am testing a new "rocket block". The block is almost fully integrated in the game but I have to adjust the settings (like the force, which it generates) and also make sure that it fits well into the multiplayer.

I've also had a look at the new GUI system of Unity 4.6. It makes things so much easier and I plan to port the current UI to the new system and to add the missing parts. Unity 4.6 Beta 19 came out recently so I might already begin to port the UI in that version, as I do not know how long it will be until the final version. With the new GUI, I could also finish the multiplayer sandbox.

If you have any feedback, don't hesitate to write a comment below and if you haven't already, please support the game on Steam Greenlight.

If the game makes it on Steam Greenlight, it will probably come to Early Access after I make sure that everything works and that the quality is good.

its Stellaray again. I agree level 2 is VERY hard (If you made the last accelerator on the corrner a little faster it would be better and it would be nice and easier to be able to hold x and delete blocks from any tab not just the tool tab. very cool demo and I think it could become a very good game

Thanks for the feedback!
I've already altered level 2 so the platform at the end isn't as high as it is now. You also have more resources available now. I'll also have a look at the short-cut problem you described. New demo version with all fixes will be available tomorrow :)

I noticed that level 2 is a too difficult (especially if you have just begun to play). I will make it easier and will probably upload a new version soon. What's your experience so far?

There will of course be sounds in the game and that's something I will work on soon. The reason why there is no sound in the game yet is that there have been many changes in the last months and I wanted to add sound effects after everything is in place.
