rhythmic pong

by lamogui - Mini LD 58 Entry

REQUIREMENTS:
Like electro/house/techno/trap/hardcore/louder music

HOWTO:
Drag and drop a music file from "remix" folder (or your personnal music) into the game window. Then play with ARROWS (because I'm getting sick of f*cking qwerty!). For mp3 files see below.


ABOUT INCLUDED REMIX:
They are all available on souncloud for free. I asked permission to bundle them with the game.
- Pat B: https://soundcloud.com/deejaypatb/
- AIIVIIK: https://soundcloud.com/aitor-rodr-guez-gete/



RECOMMENDED TRACKS:
The game was calibrated using the original "Ping-Pong" track by Armin Van Buuren and the 2 remix by Pat B and AIIVIIK available inside the "remix" folder. During the tests I also experienced good results with following tracks:
- Ping-Pong Hardwell remix
- Musician by Afrojack
- Bigfoot by W&W
- Pharoaoh by Jewels & Scott Sparks
- (Add here your track)
If you have any of these: try it!



MP3 SUPPORT:
It is important for me that my game is a standalone executable... So It only support open-source ogg/vorbis codec. But I know you guys (or girls) want to play your mp3 so I made a lib bass wrapper.
How to make it works ? very simple just copy/paste bass.dll (and bassflac.dll if you want flac files support) in the same directory as the .exe and restart the game. It will now able to play any bass supported files:
mp3, ogg, mp4, m4a, wav, flac, mod, xm, s3m and all the others I forget...

I can't play it on mac but the youtube video was really cool! I am actually seeing Armin this weekend so hopefully he plays that track. Those glitchy effects are killer stuff too

@florg No game engine here, just C++ with SFML Graphics (and lib bass for mp3 if you use it).

This is really cool! The visual effects were spot on with the look and feel of the game.

Oh no it's Windows only. I would have liked to try it, it seems very interesting. The youtube video looks great!

Super awesome concept. Really enjoyed jamming and ponging out!
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
