Since I am planning on taking part in the coming LD #32 in April I decided I would get some practice in through the MiniLD #58. With the theme of Pong I originally started my game as a Typing of the Dead / Pong hybrid but as it progressed it became more Dance Dance Revolution / Pong just to keep it simple.

Typing of the Pong

 

The game itself was fairly straight forward to make but I have learned a lot about what are good ideas and what aren’t when it comes to implementing them in a quick game project. The game is in a playable state but I ran out of time to implement music, high scores and a few other nice to have features.

Mine certainly isn’t the best of the entries but I really enjoyed making it and found having a goal makes it so much easier to be motivated to program. I definitely have enough confidence after this to go in to the coming LD #32 knowing that I can get a game finished in a short space of time.
