Cups and Ball

by ndebruyn - Mini LD 48 Entry

I have finally completed my game for the Mini LD 48.
This was very exiting and challenging at the same time.

The game is a version of the age old table trick street game, Cups and Ball. In this game the player must follow the ball hidden under one of 3 cups. After a few shuffles the player must pick which cup contains the ball.

Don't let your eyes deceit you under the facade of cups.

NB: This is a Java game so please make sure you have a JRE installed.

Tho I love me some cups n ball, it crashed my OSX. Was crushing it a bit too much? The "yay's" got a bit creepy, maybe musical tones instead? Would also be rad to see other environments, like cups n balls in a fire pit or something.

Thanks for the ideas, I will surely use them.

Nice smooth cup slidings, but it took quite a while before it got interesting (around round 30). So I wonder if it shouldn't progress a little quicker which is odd to say here at LD where most games tend to do the opposite. I would have liked the cups to be able to also pass the ball between them, as con-artist would.
