Almost Done!

I can't believe I have almost completed my first pygame game! Its not very good, a simple breakout clone, the collision detection is a bit wonky, and the ball/bat collision/reflection is also wonky, but it works. I've also added a nice high score table. I also made a level editor, but that was started before the weeks challenge, so not sure whether to include it or not - it's not part of the game, it's a separate program. Currently the filename is set in the code- need to add a filename dialogue to it really. This game doesn't use sprites, or follow all the standard gaming practices, but hey, I wrote a pygame game!

Well I did it, entered my game. The music is terrible, but the 303 is broken, so it can't be helped. Will get a USB/Midi cable in the near future to see if it works via Midi and I can then use the 808 and 909 drums as well as the 303 sounds. It is a slow game, the gameplay is pretty easy and probably a tad boring in places, but I got it all done, the game, the levels, the high score table, the title screen, the music, everything. I even downloaded some nice free graphics and cut them out with the GIMP! Hopefully things will improve from here.
