Not sure if I can mention Pong anywhere since Atari may be gonna tell me to take it down if the game reaches too far

The game is in portrait mode since it was originally designed for an mobile game compo which I used as real deadline.

Lastest screenshots:

I've made the paddles go Shocked "Ooh!" when you switch the color :D

I assume it is no coincidence this reminds me of

Juice it or lose it - a talk by Martin Jonasson & Petri Purho

Yeah, the game's juiciness is inspired by that.

Something new added/changed since the last time
  • Flat Powerup Graphic
  • Click-to-spawn Powerup
  • Pause to emphasize Powerup and Goal
  • Notification
  • Some fixes for Powerup collision
  • Watermark (because of this)
  • And some other stuff for making the developement and testing easier

I'm having some problem with game design regarding: powerup spawning, powerup lifespan, ball speed, etc...

New screenshot

Added slow-mo and click-to-spawn to test the game

Changes

  • New Powerup! Speed Boost
  • Make sure ball clones from powerups won't be > 90 degrees to the walls (or they would be hard for the player or go very slow vertically)

Regarding Game Design problems mentioned last week

  • Balanced Powerup lifespan
  • Increase Ball Speed and Paddle Speed every 10 seconds
  • Powerups are now spawned in waves
  • Previously a single powerup spawned every few seconds
  • Spawned in 8 waves per minute


News

  • A friend in my class asked to play my game :D (it seemed to be too hard for him Tongue)
  • Two others have asked for Local Multiplayer mode (that sounds like a lot of work for me)

Screenshot

New Powerup: Speed Boost (Orange)
