Hello ! :)


I took a day off in my day job this week, so I have made some really cool progress ! (At least, they look cool to me :))


On the 'visual' side of things :

- Each block is composed of particles and I light up those particles every time the ball hits a blocks which create this really cool ripple effect.
Concretely each collision will generate a sorted (depending on their square distance with the impact point) array of 'block pixels'. Each frame will light up the first 1/20 of this array, with a minimum of one, and remove it from the array. That's why it slows down as it progresses :)

- Some effects are more 'pixel arty', like the trail of the ball, or it's impact, or the twaddies that love you so much.
Quite simple trick here, for those particles, I round their position and dimensions to the closest int

On the gameplay side :

- The biggest thing here is, finally, an interactive tutorial ! I'm often quite bad at those things so please give me some feedback :) That's what took most of the time

- A first boss ! That's what took most of the rest of the time :D

- A better speed adjustment for the ball depending on its y axis


Some minor bug fixes

This looks pretty amazing. Love the retro look and all the variations you've added, it's like the ultimate pong game.

Are PC/jar the only platforms you support?

Here is update 18 :)


Twaddle Paddle now has its very own music ! It's still being worked on, not by me, but I was so happy that I wanted to included it even if not finished :)

It fixes the very first bug report not given face to face :) ! Silly me, now you can't go to unsupported values for the screenshake. Silly me :)


For the graphics, here is what has been improved :

- The paddle moves a bit differently, the bottom moves before the bottom which makes it look like a pixaleted jelly

- Blocks of different levels are easier to distinguish

- Paddle size has been changed :)

- The transition between paddle colors

- The dash

- The '3d block effect' reacts to the paddle position

- Added some text displayed in the background when the ball bounces a lot

- The background of the blocks will be darker when one of their pixel lights up


For the gameplay, here is what has changed :

- Paddle speed

- Paddle shoot timer

- Ball speed has also been adapted


For sound :

- The dash has sound

- When the ball dies

- Tuned down the score sound


The in game ui has also been improved
