It's been a bit slow since the vacation ended :(
It's still not finished, heck I don't even consider it out of alpha (proof of concept).
The Bling! logo is almost done, need to fix the diamonds and see what I can do about the gold. Also the play/quit text as well as the marker are obvious placeholders ;) They're gonna looked tagged I think, I'll try it anyway. (stupid tutorial link is down) But here's the main menu I'm working on:
The floor has been cut by me in GIMP since I don't have ray/rectangle detection yet, it's actually an infinite plane :P
The logo has been a loong idea, ever since I came up with the name. Now it doesn't look that hot... but the diamonds need more work and so does the background image. Ignore the ugly "play" "quit" texts of course :)
I've uploaded the game how it was by the end of july, haven't worked on it since then. As noted, it is not done yet :) I get a whopping 13fps, sometimes 20fps if I close down everything.
Player blue: Up/Down
Player red: PgUp/PgDn
(those buttons are next to each other on my lappy, easy testing!)
Moving in the opposite direction speeds up the ball and shrinks the reflection angle, moving "with the ball" slows down the ball and widens the reflection angle. Not moving does a simple bounce. Note: it's not game tweaked or anything.. just proof of concept
The collision is also hackish as well as frame time based. So there's room for improvement.
