Twigatelle 1.0 is in place!

- New level (mouser, this one's specially for you)
- and the assassin ball has been tweaked by some small diplomatic amount so as to keep both mouser and the kwakster happy  :P

I hate to  spoil the surprise (thank you kwaky for your tact in the previous post).

But I'm so happy with DC at the moment, I gotta share level 10: who wouldn't want to bounce off DC.com?  :D

Folks, sorry all has been quiet for the last couple of weeks. I have been away and am in frantic catch-up mode right now. As soon as the dust settles I shall be releasing more levels (and hopefully other new features) for this game.

Level 10 looks both incredibly awesome and impossible to finish!

Of course, that's assuming I ever get there in the first place... It's been a while since I tried Twigatelle. I'll have to check out the latest updates. (c:

I just came across something interesting: I hit the final red bar and then the ball ricocheted and hit a green bar. The green bar did nothing at all.

Just got to level 6 for the first time. What a fun level!

On level 7, I cleared away all the red pegs, but I had one ball left and it let me shoot again, then it gave me a game over.

I'm curious about why this happens this way:

Ball Duo: Shoots out 1 extra ball so there are 2 total.
Ball Trio: Shoots out 3 extra balls so there are 4 total.

I finally beat level 8 and the next level was... level 8?

Carp! I've been playing version 0.7 this whole time!

Oh no, nooooo. The only consolation (for me) is that explains the odd behaviour relating to the last bug reports of yours.

Yes folks, I finally uploaded Twigatelle 1.1!

New level (11), small tweaks to the bounce, but just a general update to show that I'm back in action  :Thmbsup:

Okay so I just ran it and I finally managed to get it to update itself, but for some reason it only updated to version 1.0.

So if you've fixed this in version 1.1 please ignore:

If I lose and click retry (or if I win and go to the next level) while the pegs are still popping and points are flying toward the score, all those special effects disappear while the pegs fly into place, but then they reappear and the points fly toward the score (but do not add to it) and the popping peg effects burst (but pegs stay put).


How the heck did this miss?

How did this miss.pngNANY 2010 Release: Twigatelle

This is what I'm talking about when I say the aiming still feels off. When I launch the ball, I expect the center of the ball to end up exactly where my mouse is pointing. This is not happening, and it makes aiming at any distance to be wonky. It's not that I mind missing a peg if my aim is bad, it's just that for some reason it invokes the emotion of being cheated or slighted. It makes me feel like the game is unfair. As such, I have a really hard time completing any of the levels. Almost every single round I play, the ball often does not ricochet the way I was expecting because it's not in the place I told it to go.

Deozaan,

The ball has weight, and flies as you would expect a rock to when thrown.  The canon pops the ball out with enough force to get the ball to the edge if the screen, not more.  Look at the line of the shot, you'll see it gently falls away, those shots you need to aim just above the peg, especially on the edges.

At least this is my interpretation and it works for me.   :Thmbsup:

Dagnabbit, what happened to 1.1?

Ok, it's definitely there: I just got it to download and install a moment ago. No idea why Java Web Start does not update you sometimes - I'll do some googling.

Thank you all, for all comments :)

Dezoaan, I'll still look into your aiming, since you seem to have experienced more issues than everyone else combined  :o

Level 10 was a hard one!  :o

Finally got through it and level 11 too. Now I'll get back to my life while I patiently wait for level 12.

12 should roll out over the weekend! Congratulations for being the first to complete level 11 (that I know of)

Ahh, I haven't commented in a while.  I switched out my age-old Windows XP for Ubuntu, lost all of my bookmarks, and just about forgot about Twigatelle for a few weeks.  Gonna download that right now and check out the new levels!

Sorry all - it's been way too quiet in here lately.

Anyway, I just uploaded Twiggles 1.2 to the usual place. Please give 'er a whirl.

No deep changes, just 2 new levels to keep things ticking over while I make some more interesting mods.

This time around, it downloaded for me right away, but please check the version number on the main screen to be sure you're bouncing around with 1.2!
