This little base builder was made like a game of telephone: 6 devs worked on it in a row for 4 hours each, adding to it, piece by piece , all without communicating with each other in between.

The participants in this challenge were:

  1. Liam Calice
  2. Noa Calice
  3. Aran from Sokpop
  4. Jonas Tyroller
  5. CodeMonkey
  6. Yän

In Piece by Piece, you steer a space ship to defend against a swarm of alien critters. Soon enough, they may overwhelm you so better upgrade your ship and add new modules in the shop!


  • Adjust aim: Mouse movement
  • Move around: WASD
  • Fire a missle: Left Click
  • Fire a mega missle: Space
  • Open / close shop: Tab

You should release the source code since it cant be worked on, i think it would be cool to try to mod it and see how far a modding community would go for a simple game like this

source code?

I can't figure out how to download the game because when I press download it just downloads a file that I can't do anything with.

Make sure to unzip the file


Very interesting game, I am horrible at it, but I enjoyed playing it a lot.

I like the look of this kind of design. But the little aliens are a little bit faster than you at that point, eventhough you have almost all boosters in the back. SO I thing you maybe need to play with less health here than me. Really fun though 

is there a way to play the game without downloading the game or using the newgrounds link because my school blocks the newgrounds website and there is no way to download anything onto the computer?

you can download it then save it onto one drive and download it at school again

no other way

i forget to capture the build but it look like the golden ratio LOL

Wow that's a really cool build!

how do you leave the game there’s no menu button 

alt f4 lol

Alternatively, you can also use the task manager to kill it. Due to the time constraints of the challenge, no one really took care of making a menu and all that.

how to leave the game with out f4 in

Nice one, look what I managed to create XD

Wow, that's incredible! Did you perhaps take inspiration from Steam Powered Giraffe?

No, it's from game Reksio i UFO (Rex and UFO) [2003]


I...I am addicted. I don't know where to begin with how awesome this game is! Not only is selecting the right upgrades important, but placement is also crucial! You give the player a few parts and a few upgrades and yet you open up a colossal world of possiblities!

very fun

Reminds me of the Bubble Tanks flash game


i am not able to play i do not understand how to acces the game after download can anybody help?

You have to drag it out of the zip folder into another folder and then double-click the .exe file. Alternatively, you can play it here online: https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/829585#

I have a touch screen laptop, so once I had 10 click missile modules I could tap everywhere on the screen and nothing could get me. (I still lost)

Really amazing how just 20 hours and 6 developers is what it takes to make a game like this!

the mega missile has a bug when i die and accindentally press the space when mega missile is finish the CD.

Web version?

yes. newgrounds: https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/829585




The missile module has a bug where it get cheaper after every purchase. Also the missile has unlimited CD after 9 missile modules are installed


The second line is the reason for the first line. It's not a bug, it's intended design due to the diminishing returns of this module. Thanks for playing!


Oh, I see :)




i want to see more people do stuff like this

https://ibb.co/8r1nKRs record? tell me pls

This game is very fun, however I would agree with Maxwellondon with their notes on this game. I would also like to report that you can, in fact, place modules where you shoudn't be able to place them by hovering over a valid position, quickly moving to the invalid position, and then clicking.

guys i couldnt have the game working

who can help

What is the problem? If you can't get the windows version to work, you can play it in your browser on newgrounds too: https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/829585


Awesome game, good job guys :)

Man i wish there was a Android version

its a game for computer

This is really nice and has a satisfying gameplay.
This is what I noticed:
- I didn't found a quit menu (had to ALT+F4)
- You can't remove thing you placed. Even without refund, would be nice to be able to still upgrade the ship, otherwise if you get stuck in a certain configuration, it's pointless to earn more money.
-Heal module is a bit op. Maybe set a limit for them, or add a cooldown for beign able to buy it.
- Instead of having 2 L modules, would be nice to have one that you can mirror before placing it.
- You may add a 120 degree angle module

There's plenty of room for improvement. If it had a story and I found it on steam, I would have bought it.
(It'll be easier if you talk each other now :D)


did you try click missiles?

they are broken as all hell... the price DECREASES for the lower refresh time module

i cant play on chromebook so could you make a browser versio

Browser version here!


get a normal pc lmao 

how do i start the game?

After downloading, drag all the contents of the zip folder into a new folder and then double-click the exe file. Alternatively, you can play it in your browser here: https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/829585

Idk if its just me but There's no close game option LMAO

True, just use alt+f4


maybe just alt tab 



DAMN, I had WAY TOO MUCH fun playing this game!)

Lol that was fun to watch. Thank you for playing and featuring our game!


No Problem, It was soo fun to play!

Hey i tried to pay for this but itch said:

This Connect account cannot currently make live charges. The `requirements.disabled_reason` property on the account will provide information about why this account is currently disabled.

Very cool! It would be even cooler to have a mac download tho.

any chance we’d get a linux export?

Since I don't have the final version of the project here, best thing I can offer you is the Newgrounds page, where you should be able to play it online: https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/829585


Surprisingly well polished game. Not a big fan of screenshake personally, so after a few long runs, I started to get a headache haha.

My only one critique is that the center of rotation is the cockpit of the ship, it can lead to me swinging my entire ship against a swarm of enemies. The ship should rotate based on the entire mass/size of it instead of pivoting around the cockpit at the same speed. Though, one can argue it is part of the challenge of difficulty and strategy.

Otherwise, really polished game, fun mechanics, and great art style. This is the best score I can get.
