[Released] Twaddle Paddle - 1 pixel particle-iar experience

Hello everyone !

Let me start with a love letter to libGDX :
I started a game in Unity that I wanted to nurse to something I would be proud of ! But really, in the end, I couldn't bear working on Windows
So I compiled unreal engine for 4 hours, and got back to another project. Just to figure out that well.. that's complicated, breaks easily, and seems quite unwieldy
Next was Godot, MIT license, actively developed, I even got a a Godot t-shirt at fosdem. It also as its own language, but really, that's still a game engine, with its ways you have to adopt.
So, I'm back to libGDX, and it feels good :)

So, the game :

It's a arcade game that makes the most of the classic breakout mechanics by adding a few things :

- Element types to the game. Ice blocks break what is down them when killed by an ice ball. Fire blocks explode when killed by a fire ball

- You can switch the paddle type giving said type to the ball when it bounces on it

- You can go up / down with your paddle, making it go faster / slower and changing the speed of the ball when it bounces on it.

- Colliding balls will merge into one more powerful ball

So I wanted to work on ui this week.

The result is that I have far better graphics imo, but the ui hasn't changed yet :D

Hey, new update is out, let me know what you think :)

There are a few gameplay adjustments and better graphics

Image

The biggest change is that you can now dash with your paddle

I really dig the Artstyle and animations :) Especially all the particles! :o Really need to learn how to use them so I can add them to my own games. ^^

Hey thank you !

That's actually all 'particles'. I only have 1 single graphical asset which is a white 1 pixel. I don't use libGDX particles though

So, I skipped a week because I felt that the last update was a bit weak. Now I feel like there is too much :3

The most obvious ones :

- mouse control can dash
- better blocks anim
- a background that is drawn by the balls
- better level selection
- highscore saved :3
- better looking fonts
- added some 'creatures' that are released when you break a block
- kids mode remember destroyed blocks

Hello !

The new update is out with updates focused on the polish :)

A better level selection
A larger paddle to allow you to better control where the ball goes
A better looking effect when your paddle shoots
A better, more visible, bouncing indicator (The thing that shows you where the ball will land on the paddle. Very useful)
Some (probably temporary) music !
