Circular

by Shadowspaz - Mini LD 58 Entry

Modern minimalism and class retro style mix to form 360° of Pong!

I decided I'd use this minijam as a personal test run for 48-hour LDs in the future, so this is what I have. The game has single and multiplayer, with singleplayer featuring a solo mode, as well as play versus an AI. The game supports controllers (in a basic way) as well.

Default controls: WASD or Arrows for P1, IJKL or 8456(numpad) for P2. The controls can also be edited from the 'Input' tab in the launcher.

Update! I put in a fair bit of time converting this to Android, and in the process, added a handful of features, tweaked some things, and added some graphical details. Looking back, it's certainly an improvement over the original entry here...

Anyway: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.Vemodalen.Circular

A very sleek design and an exemplary finish !
Please think of non-qwerty players and put arrows for player 1

Thanks! :)

Regarding non-qwerty, on the launcher, you can click 'Input' and then change the controls yourself right there.

I like this game, it is a bit hard to get the paddle where you want it though, because of the speed that it moves.

it would be cool to see this for mobile.

As a matter of fact, I have plans for a mobile version, just because of all the empty space of the sides. Throw in some touch-input thumbpads there, and voila.

Super smooth and well made. I included it in 6 of my Mini LD #58 compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :)

I must say, your frustration at moments made me laugh a bit. :)
