DodgeBlock, as of version 1.4.2, has 2,157 lines of code.
DodgeBlock is a game developed almost completely by Othello7 with credit to TheKingOfDucks for the animated start screen and main icon. It's a color text based game in which the player tries to dodge falling Blocks by moving left and right. Usually, the whole game is controlled from the arrow keys. In Normal Mode, collect Bonus Points to get +50 score. Wanna play with a friend? Invite your friend to play on WSAD with 2 player with Two Player Mode! The half-cooperative dual play version of DodgeBlock. Sadly DodgeBlock is programmed in C# .net framework, so it only works on Microsoft Windows, but we're working on a Linux port in .net core.

DodgeBlock needs a new dev!
This is it. I am done. There likely won’t be any more updates
from me after 1.4.1. I plan to pick a new developer for DodgeBlock some day, but that person might be hard to find. If you program in C# and are interested in updating DodgeBlock and bringing it to the future, please go to this link Developer Contact

Just a small little event here. changing the textures of DodgeBlock for two weeks from November 17th to 30th.
We've been having a lot of people complain about the instant-tick controls, and even I after all this time still have a little problem with them sometimes. So after some innovation, I've come up with this solution, enjoy.

Blasters and Shields and Power-Ups oh my!
|☠ Halloween Event LeaderBoard ☠
I got the idea for this update a long time back. Actually, I have been thinking of this since 3.0! But I wanted to work out all the bugs first which I did in many updates up until now. What seemed like a dream then, has become reality now. Experience the power of the Attack and Defense Update! (1.3.0) And because of this new found power, it is possible to get even higher scores!
But a problem I have now is, I don’t have many ideas for more updates. So if you have any
ideas at all,
please please email me.
Its off to the races! | LeaderBoard Authenticity Issue
You see, DodgeBlock has been gaining in popularity so quickly it hasn't been able to keep up.
Before, the Leaderboard took submissions relying on the trust of others. while screenshots are a good
discouragement, they don't prevent people from cheating. So as soon as we doubted whether a score was
authentic or not, we had no way to check. And this is why we made the Secret Code System.
of taking a screenshot, press the "Copy Secret Code" button, and send that as verification.
But due to this question we must reset all scores. well, its off to the races everybody, theres Free Slots!
DodgeBlock Windows Forms Port:
The Console is starting to cause serious problems for DodgeBlock and I have been making serious efforts to move it away from it.
Finally, I found that I could use a RichTextBox in a Windows Forms Application to do the trick using some neat RTF code.
DodgeBlock 1.0.0 Should be out soon!
