In the last two months, I worked on several smaller features and bugfixes for the game:

As shown in the video, bricks can now break to pieces. With this feature, it now looks more spectacular when buildings collapse and the mechanic is also important to keep the number of blocks lower in multiplayer games (Before I added this feature, blocks started to fill up the whole map which was annoying and also had a negative impact on the performance).

Another new mechanic is that bombs now explode on impact instead of having a 5-second delay. This allows you to shoot them at targets more precisely.

Until now, the game didn't have support for multiple multiplayer maps. To fix this issue I rewrote the server setup and added options the select the map and the gamemode. Furthermore, I added player-slots which is needed on maps with teams and more than 2 players.

Besides the things mentioned above, I also added a loading screen, changed and optimized several things in the background of the game and fixed a few bugs. (More info on my development-blog: Brickinventions.net)

Hope you like the new features, if you have any feedback or ideas, don't hesitate to write a comment below :)

This looks just great! :D
But I'm hoping for a playable version soon ;)

Though I'm aware of that you want to have something a bit more solid before you release a demo. So I guess we'll just have to wait.
