Beta – Working Title

Become a tester

Pocket Ball is a casual game where the aim is to put the ball in the pocket with a limited number of shots.  Every round there is another ball, meaning that the game gets harder and harder as the game progresses.  To combat the increased difficulty a range of ‘powerups’ become available throughout the game.

Any feedback would be appreciated, but in particular, I am after feedback on;

  • Bugs
  • Balance (frequency and introduction of powerups)
  • New powerup ideas
  • Any other improvements
  • Name ideas

 

Powerup Information

Powerups are chosen in the following way.  Every second iterate through all powerups and;

  1. If the powerup is valid for the current level then generate a random number between 1 and 1000.
  2. If the random number is lower than the odds for that particular powerup choose a random ball.
  3. If that ball is still in play then set the ball as the chosen powerup.  This means that as a level is played the chances of a powerup become smaller and smaller.
