BaLLs v1.00

This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
BaLLs (v1.00)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bqb3OKirbQ8

What is BaLLs?

Balls is a minigame, where you control a ball and where you have to
collect green balls to get points. But there also other balls (red ones) which
want to kill you. They bounce off the walls and if you come near them, you'll die.

What's the objective of BaLLs?

There is no real objective. It's only a small minigame, where you can have
fun. But you can send me a pm with a screenshot, so I can add you in the
Highscores (If your score is high enough).

How can I tell you my score?

Just do that what I mentioned above: Send me a pm with a screenshot, and
if your score is high enough, I'll add it to the Highscore. The Highscore is
listed here. Only the 5 best will be written on it. But I'm not going to write
down the scores right away.

Why should I add my score here?

You don't have to add your score here, it's just for you and the others to
see, how good you are.

    Addicting and fun minigame :) Although it laggs a bit (in terms of FPS, i have 15 fps) and sometimes there is a delay to the ball :D, but it's nothing. A 4/5 for a minigame, if you improve it. Now 3,3/5

    @ wastabee: I know, first it doesn't lag, but after 3-5 games, it begins to lag, but I don't know why... but thanks for your comment.

    Good job, you have fixed some serious leaks, now the fps doesn't drop, but the delay still increases a bit. I haven't yet seen anything buggy, except, when you bounce in a wall you are disabled for about 0.25 seconds, and once an enemy ball spawned in me and i died :D.

    @ wastabee: When you bounce in a wall, I made that you stop 'rolling' until you press again the arrow keys. I know it's annoying, but it's the only way to keep the player in the arena.
    And an other problem are the sounds. I want to evade the leak, so I made:
    Trigger
    • Actions
    • Sound - Play Coin
    • Sound - Destroy Last played sound

    It doesn't play the sound... but it plays the defeat sound, but only these sounds are not working. Only if I remove the 'Sound - Destroy Last played sound' they work.

    @ hookah: a multiplayer version wouldn't be good because it's a gametype, where
    a multiplayer version would ruin it.

    Question:
    Should I add more powerup effects/more ball variety/more gamemodes?

    @ hookah: gj, I'll add you in the highscores when a new version is comming out

    1) Description - Provide all necessary detail and follow the site rules.
    2) Scripting/Triggering - Cannot check since it was optimize, but it was laggy after a few play. There is a possible leak, please fix that.
    3) Replayability - Low, even though it was interesting. The replayability is almost none after 2 times of the gameplay and seems to be easy to achieve a high scores.
    4) Terrain - For such a mini-games genre, the terrain was at acceptable level.
    5) Bug - The blue ball have several times spawn and moving outside the arena, there is no way to reach it.

    [​IMG]

    Overall, it need more polish and feature to be implement such as Scoreboard. Seeing this as a simple game for single player, the scores should be recorded.

    My rating was 3/5 (Useful), however the current standard might between 2 (Lacking) and 3 (Useful) for the staff.

    Yes, you should add a highscores that would be saves into the games that show the high score for each difficulty.

    High score in this site and ingame was different, user woud like to see if they have improve themselves or not by comparing it with their old scores.

    I see you like the map, but maybe you could give me some informations what I should improve.
    And it would be a great pleasure, if you can send me a pm with the screenshot so I have a better overview. Thanks.
