Yesterday I met SiENcE, who revealed to me the game idea he lately played with: first you build, then you destroy. The games referenced were Bomber hehhe [review, screens, video] and Rampart [review, screens].
I was skeptical about the ‘build’ thing, because I remember from child days, that destroying was disproportionally more fun than building. Probably all this means is that the building will have to be spiced up with rewarding the player a lot.
So after coming home, I took Shapes.love by MHD and added some colors and sound effects to it. The result, SuperShapes.love, will hopefully be helpful at exploring the building phase of aforementioned idea.
