Hi! I did another experiment. You have to play two games at once.
On the right it's classic Breakout. This is controlled with the mouse. On the left it's classic Tetris which is controlled with the WSAD keys or the arrow keys alternatively (plus the space bar for dropping stones).
Tetrominos which are removed in the Breakout game will appear in the Tetris game on the left. If there is already one active Tetromino in the Tetris game, removed Tetrominos are put in a queue. The longer the queue, the faster Tetris gets. It's self explanatory when you try it. If you manage to remove four lines a once you will get an additional life. Game is over when you've lost all lives or when you lose in Tetris. So far there is just one level. If you clear up the right side, it will be just refilled.
I'm still not sure, if this was a good idea because it is rather difficult to find and maintain a good balance of difficulty. I also think that there might be better combinations of classic games to do this kind of mashup. Because of this I won't continue this project, but rather focus on some other ideas.
