Round Pong

by MintArcade - Mini LD 58 Entry

Forget everything you think you knew about pong. Get your score by hitting the ball. Don't let your opponent do the same. Lose 3 balls and you're out.

Pretty cool, now I just need to find someone to play it with.

May be you should add an option to flip commands (up->right down->left). It should be more instinctive

Nice job. I think it would benefit from a centre line to really make it clear where each player's zone begins/ends. The hit detection also seems to occur a fair ways off the paddle. Other than that, solid entry.

Agree, I din't put all my hard to MiniLD this time round. Spend only 8 hours, but then got distracted by "current project I'm working on", so I have to round up there. No music too - that's a shame for me personaly.
I didn't even think about a centre line, great idea, thanks. Hit detection and swings/serves when you hit the ball at some velocity are totally wrong. Well...
Thanks for playing.

I agree with the centre line. I am a bit sad you didnt put your heart into it, but there is always the next LD. Nice idea though! I included it in part 18 of my Mini LD #58 compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/zdlBaMIZcTM
