Pong1a2 (second version)
This is the WORKING version!
Ok, there were 2 game-killing bugs in first release. I've just squished them. Was just a question of changing a few statements from "true" to "false". Really. I have a couple of flags that track whether the ball's going up or down, and whether it's going left or right. 2 lines of code that said: "ballWeUse.blBallGoingLeft = true" should have been "ballWeUse.blBallGoingLeft = false". DOH!
There are still some "interesting minor quirks", but the game is actually playable now - Player 1 actually has a chance now lol.
Am keeping the old version up for posterity though :)
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 :)
Press F1 to toggle full-screen mode
Important: Please bear in mind this is designed for proper computers, with keyboards, not mobile devices, although I'll try to make future updates more mobile-friendly ;)
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)
Also squishing of anymore bugs you can find and hopefully a mobile-friendly versio.
* 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.
