Title: Pong Remake
Post by: Antikore on April 30, 2019, 10:13:33 AM
Pong Remake
Hi, there! I have created a pong in Platform Builder, just like the original.
Note: I'm still working on it, but in a few days, I will publish it as complete. That's the reason because I put it on the complete games section.

Controls
You have to configure your own controls.
Controls for player 1:
- P1 Up: Player 1 up
- P1 Down: Player 1 down
Controls for player 2:
- P2 Up: Player 1 left
- P2 Down: Player 1 right
When the game ends, you can press the jump button to quit, if it doesn't work, hold the button until it works.

Objective:
Like tennis but virtually. The first player to get 8 points wins. Due to PB limitations, there is a time limit of 20 seconds per move, if it reaches that time, the bullet will return to the middle and try again, but doesn't something awkward.

I haven't encountered any bugs yet, if you find some, tell me via PM.

Enjoy with your friends :D

WHAT!!! I got started on my pong remake yesterday! I also had an idea to re-spawn the projectile. I just didn't finish it. I suppose I could delete the project. I already got the looks down. One issue I had was the CPU's speed.

Oh, sorry. I thought you didn't start yet...

I tried playing by myself. The players don't move fast enough. I could detect that the pong ball had acceleration turned on, I would turn that off because over time, it gets very hard to get to the ball.

Yes, but there are three ball types:
- Slow but accelerating
- Normal
- Fast

What determines what kind of ball gets out?
