Pongnihilation

by Janov Byrnisson - Mini LD 58 Entry

Pongnihilation is a turn based pong strategy game. You need to collect resources, build missile turrets and defeat your enemy. Currently you can only play vs another real player, since I had no time to implement AI. But it will come in the near future. :)

HOW TO PLAY
-----------

Build mines and other buildings from the bottom left toolbar, clicking one of the buttons 1-4. Except of Shield Generators you can build on the asteroids only.

You can build 4 type of buildings:

1. Resource Mine - Generates 7 resources per turn. Costs: 8 res.
2. Shield Generator - Generates a shield field that reverses one missile. Costs: 11 res.
3. Missile Turret - Launches missiles at the end of each turn. Costs: 11 res.
4. Research Facility - Lets you make research for upgrades. Costs: 25 res.

You can control the turrets direction by left clicking it to make highlighted and press and hold right mouse button then moving your mouse.
You can control the paddle by dragging it up and down with the mouse.

On the beginning of each turn you can build, adjust the turrets and move the paddle to avoid hit from the missiles. Paddle gives you +2 resources when enemy missile hits it.

When a player hit points reach 0, the other player wins the game.

ISSUES & MISSING THINGS
-----------------------

Unfortunately I couldn't work all week long on this project, I just had couple of days available, there are missing things like Researches and possible bugs. Please forgive me. :D

I will finish this project completely and upload a post jam version.

Cheers! :)

Really neat game, though I wish it was more obvious how to turn the turrets. By the time I started playing, I sort of forgot. xD I included it in part 15 of my Mini LD #58 compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/RA-81K1N6O0
