256 Farben: The Game
After a visit to SFMOMA, I was inspired to turn German abstract artist Gerhard Richter's "Colour Charts" into a block-breaker game.

Principally an effort to see if I could randomly generate arrays of colors like his, which appear both pleasing and unexpected.

I have yet to clear the board :)

Replay value is low, but the colors sure are pretty!

But bugged. I got down to one last block (far right, 3 or 4 down from top), and then the ball just hugged the ceiling and flew off to the left.

Nice! I like that you coded this from scratch without a framework.

Thanks, Nelson! I made it last year after watching Mary Rose Cook's Space Invaders live-coding presentation.

Appreciate the bug report, quinndexter. I'll do some digging.

My ball escaped! I think this means I win.
