Galatea is a wind-up dancer from Zodiac...and she's sick of dancing! She wants a life of her own, but the only way she'll get one is by becoming a god and escaping to another world -- hopefully one that's not as chaotic and depraved as Zodiac.

This is Breakout like you've never seen it before! Bounce and smash Galatea through 48 levels of gemstone blocks, marble pillars, and more malicious critters than you can shake a fist at!

Indie Statik Impression

Posted By Chris Priestman 9/2/2013

There are genres that don’t get much love, even among smaller freeware titles, and one of those is the Arkanoid/Breakout/brick-and-ball genre. Yet along comes Gemdance with an original story, 48 unique levels and great animations and pixel art to match. Sure, that’s mostly cosmetic stuff and numbers, but the game as a whole has a lot to offer, even if you don’t consider yourself a fan of the genre.

Thanks fer playin'! Rushjet1 does pretty sweet tunes. He did the music for 8bit Killer too, which is considerably higher profile.

Awesome game. Really twisted the simple concept of an ancient game into something much more entertaining. 4/5

I have to admit that my taste in Breakout style games are very much the same as Raeleus', but this was a nice variation on the theme.

Good story and lovely theme, however gameplay is very basic. I wanted there to be more action. At the pace it was going, there was no way I could lose but I wasn't motivated to beat more than one level either.

"More action" is pretty vague. Can you elaborate?

My favorite block breaker games have a faster moving ball and a greater variety of powerups from the get go. Some even have enemies that attack the paddle. The enemies I've encountered in this game are just obstacles. Some of my favorites are DX-Ball, Wizorb, and Shatter. I know it's not fair to compare your game to these highly polished games, but I only mention it as a frame of reference.
