So, after my last public commitment, been spending a few hours(when I can get them) coding the game. The codename was NYOP (Not Your Ordinary Pong), but as ideas keep popping up, I have some bigger plans for it and decided to rename it to Masters of Pong: Tournament (sounds cool, no?)
All the basics of pong are done. Today I got a bit bored with the game mechanics so I decided to jazz it up with some better visuals, sounds and a menu.
One thing that was really fun was to program the AI player. Right now it has 4 levels, and one more (the God one) will be coming soon. It’s really exciting to see it come to life and have it play against you :)
Initially I came up with the name Not Your Ordinary Pong because I had lots of ideas to improve on the simple pong game. As all the basics are done, I will from now on start working on those :D
Here are some highlights of the game, so far, and a short video below (sorry for the poor quality)
- 5 levels of AI Players
- different cool backgrounds and one awesome soundtrack
- …it’s pong! :P
