Pong1 (my first version)
Click here for next version (1a2)
Only took me about 12 hours today (and about 800 lines of C# code) too, a lot of it tearing my hair out and shouting, "WTF won't this work, this makes no f*ing sense at all!" etc.
lol at the start I said to myself, 2 or 3 hours tops. Doh!
If anyone ever tries to tell you that Pong is a "simple game", feel free to punch them, hard. :P
All you need to play this is a keyboard and a very bored friend (or right-hand).
Click on the game window above and press Space to start....
Player 1: use W and A to control your paddle
Player 2: use P and L to control yours :)
Update: Just been playtesting this final version a bit and noticed some interesting bugs. Let's just refer to them as undocumented features. I'll try fixing them tomorrow.
Update 2: Ok, there were 2 game-killing bugs in first release. I've just squished them. Click here for new version "1a2". The game is actually playable now - Player 1 actually has a chance now lol. Am keeping this version up for posterity however :)
Future plans for this: Could probably use network-based multiplayer, and maybe ability to handle 4 players? I also wanna introduce somekinda CPU player, but it probably won't be all that intelligent to begin with (more like semi-random paddle control) - would be awesome if it could learn from Human players though* 8)
* Excuse to play with neural networks :P
Any suggestions for stuff I could try developing or improvements to existing projects? :)
I always welcome feedback, especially constructive.
