Almost Done!!!!  Epileptic

Made some major changes in the new version:
- Fixed major issues with the ball movement, making it much smoother to play.
- Added animations for picking up the ball and throwing the ball.
- Added music & sound effects. I really wanted to compose my own music, but ran out of time, so used music from FreeSound.
- Based on user feedback (managed to play with 5 people simultaneously and saw that the latency stays reasonable, hooray!), raised the speed that the power bar takes to load.
This change may seem small, but I think it really added to the gameplay.

And minor changes:
- Added wood panel texture for around the field
- Prettier people in the crowd
- Chatbox using colors
- An ability to toggle mute (with 'm')

Here are the latest screenshots:

And the stats screen:


My plans for the last day (gonna squeeze it to the last second):
- Make things prettier:
  * Add shading (and shadows) to the characters.
  * Add some decorations for the side of the field which looks a bit empty.
- If still have time, add leaderboards.

FINISHED!

 Cool

Changes in the latest version:
- Added shading to the characters
- Added shadows to the characters
- Added decor to the playfield
- Added high scores

Here's the latest screenshot:



All in all, I'm pretty satisfied with the results.
The one thing that bothers me still, is the lagginess of the ball.
I thought I had it figured out, but today, the ball again was lagging slightly, so I guess
the server had a really good day yesterday.
Even with that, I think that the game is still fun, so go and play!

Well, I'm not completely sure, but I think it might be related to internet explorer only.
For me at least, the game plays a lot better on google chrome, so I recommend using it and not IE when playing the game (haven't tried any other browser).
