It is not the very, very first Pong game ever made but it is right up there. It is simple enough. It plays like tennis. Just try to knock the little ball past your opponent to win! ‘Spirit’ award for ping-pong doc. 28-year-old put Paralympic Games preparations on hold to join the virus battle. 07 January, 2021 — By Steve Barnett.
A downloadable Battle Pong for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Battle Pong is a college project I'm currently working on and will be updated and tweaked over the next few weeks.
The Game is designed to be accompanied by a custom controller which is another criteria of the project and I'll share progress on the controllers development as it comes together.
Battle Pong is a local multiplayer game for two players. Both players take on the role of PongBots and must guide the ball into their goal designated by colour.
The games mechanics and theme draw on the original Pong very slightly and I wanted to try something different when it came to creating a custom controller to accompany the actual game. So the Bots centre torso is capable of twisting a full 360 degrees and the arms act as paddles to guide / deflect the ball.
Lots of content to still be added and tweaked.
Really looking for feedback on the the center torso twist mechanic there's currently two variations -
Battle Pong Game
Player one has no momentum and the arms will remain in the direction the face
Player two has momentum and the arms will continue to rotate.
Player one movement - W/A/S/D Torso twist - Q/E
Player two movement - I/J/K/L Torso twist U/O
Much Love -
