Didn’t get as long on it today as I would have liked, but managed to tidy things up a little, got some simple AI, and some explosions in the form of mines :) The force the mines apply to the ball¬†doesn’t always feel right, so I’ve got to sort that out. And I’ve been thinking about adjusting the score system so it’s a bit more pinball like. Maybe if your paddle was last to touch ball, you earn points when you hit mines, bouncer posts etc, and then goals work as a multiplier. I’m not sure though, but I’ll probably give it a try.

As promised here is a preview video. Switches view from birds eye about half way in.

With any luck I’ll have enough time over next couple of evenings to wrap it up.

Might end up changing the name too, we’ll see.
