I need help - if you try hitting the ball with the sides of the paddle, it gets stuck inside the paddle and bounces around a bunch of times. How can I fix this so that it just bounces off of the side?
Arrow keys for bottom player, ESDF for top player.
So far shitty pong game for two players. Put it here so it wouldn't die away in my profile.
This is squashy ball, as we all know it from PicoZine #1. As a first time coder I decided to just see what I could do with the game, so I added everything you see and hear past the ball and paddle movement. Big thanks to Alex Mole for the inspiration.
Stats save in between sessions. There are 9 skins available to chose from. I may add more in the future.
This is Squashy Ball, based off of the tutorial in Picozine #1. As a fun project I decided to enhance the game and make it more enjoyable and less buggy. This is my first try at coding something in this language and I have very little experience coding at all. Any feedback on the game is very welcome! Also any feedback on how to make my code more efficient/better would be good too. Thanks!
In the menu's, press X to go to the selected item, and Z to go back to the main menu. You can press left and right to choose your skin in the options menu, but I haven't worked out changing the difficulty yet so that is not available. For reference, I think the way the game is now would probably be Hard mode, as it is quite difficult.
One thing I would specifically like to ask is: how can I get rid of the trail that appears behind the ball? Specifically with the Christmas skin it is very noticeable, and I would like this to look nicer.
