New build uploaded with level 3 now in place.

Well, also level 4 but that's boring since at the moment it's the same sort of thing as level 5, i.e. random distribution (based, as if anyone cared, on a custom fast Poisson distribution method what I wrote)

Anyone got any ideas for level layouts based on the shapes now available?

Enjoy. Still some bugs in there folks, but I will get them fixed.  :-[

[Edit] Sorry folks, Twigatelle is unavailable for a short time while I figure out why the jar file has stopped building correctly!

Well that's really nice to hear. I think it's the latest release of IntelliJ IDEA - it's not rolling all the resources into the jar. I may have to downgrade.  :mad:

Hey wait a minute, the "bars" are larger than 16x16!  Does that mean that my bumpers that are currently making me cringe can be larger?  (Not that I'd want to..)

I'm going to get done with the graphics I'm making today, hopefully.

*facepalms*  Okay, my bumpers are not turning out well, but here's a possible button.  Click on the attached button, it looks different on my post.

By the way, you named the button "Button220x70", but it's 213x64.

I can use that. I shall start a "skins" option for the game, and create a Cyeb folder.

Speaking of which (although it's barely necessary I would say) - the game can be translated into any language. Any need it in non-English?

Thanks for the feedback.  :Thmbsup: I wonder if the game cannot save to your local disk...

Where is it trying to save the data, I'm having the same problem on Windows 7, high scores aren't saved either.

btw.. i'm addicted

2. I got a Ball Frenzy and in the ensuing chaos another green bumper was hit and may have been Assassin Ball, not sure I didn't actually catch what was activated. At any rate the last two balls came into proximity of each other at low speed and became "caught in each others' gravity." That's the only way I could describe it. They bounced off of each other then pulled back together, endlessly. I had to start a new game.

dagnabit, i was just having "one more game" when this happened to me.. fenzy+assasin, I actually had 5 balls circumnavigating each other until by chance 3 of them managed to be 'saved' as the paddle moved beneath them.. now I just have the 2 balls locked in an enternal struggle..  

It seems to me that the 'frenzied assasins' had locked onto a red bumper that dissapeared on their way there.

Oooh, as I was typing another 1 got saved, based on this progress if I wait another 15 minutes I can progress to the next level  ;D

Ah ha - thanks, another good error report there. I recall a very good suggestion about assassin balls which I shall implement. So if they do go into the circle of doom, assigning a new target may well get you out of trouble.

That is some score all right! And here was me wondering if I had not provided enough balls!

New release coming up this weekend with new levels and more graphics.

I'd just like you to know that there are some occasions on which I exercise restraint.

I can't even get past the first level yet. I don't get what I'm doing wrong. Frankly it's kind of frustrating I can't control the paddle at the bottom. Or... maybe I can and that's my problem, I don't know all the controls? Is there a control reference? I feel like I must be missing something. :P

So I finally made it to level 3 and a respectable score of 889,000, and I feel better about myself. But having got this far, I really feel like the game could be made easier, or at least have options to be so, as I was missing out on a good portion of the interest and fun for lack of ability to advance. Adding things like control of the paddle at bottom and additional peg hit effects/modes would also extend enjoyment a lot.

Anyway, I hope this is encouraging and doesn't seem like bellyaching. I really like this type of game and hope this continues to develop. :)

I'm sorry, timns...I don't think I can come up with bumpers.  I keep making some, and then thinking that it looks horrible.  Plus I have the SAT coming up in a week, and no time at all on the weekends.  My days are filled with homework, and just about every horrible thing you can think of short of beatings and tortures.

Now you said you would make a folder in my name...What about just simply making a credits page, and say "Cyeb-Made the crappy green button." at the very bottom?  I don't deserve that much credit. :hanged:

:-[ And that's why we love you Chris.

On a more serious note...

I think there are just the right amount of balls, however level 4 is nigh impossible without a ball frenzy or assassin bonus.  level 3 and 5 are my favourites.
