Bill Kong King is a breakout-style game in its own genre, because it replaces the usual pad, ball and bricks by a gorilla, a banana and bees, as you can see by looking to the below section screenshots. The difficulty? The bees are constantly moving...
Each level has its own music and background texture, with 5 types of different bonuses depending on the levels. You can play either with the keyboard, the mouse or a gamepad, the mouse being strongly recommended to avoid more banana losses...
Also, you have several customizable settings to adjust the difficulty level: banana's speed, bonus frequency...
I wanted to create an original breakout game... You are the judge. Or at least should you try first to finish the fifteen levels of the game... Because for an apparently simple game, it's actually quite difficult :-)
