Description

Ball Attack is a simple little arcade game -- reminiscent of pong or breakout, but you need to keep ever increasing amounts of balls in the air with your little paddle.

@Gonzalo those are great ideas, thanks

Also, this are not originals idea but:
- points increment when you hit the ball not when a new ball appears
- after some hits, ball is destroyed
- set the screen size to 400, 600 instead of 600, 600, it's a better perspective for this kind of games
- super powers are always

Keep going.

nice start,
it's only an idea but i think that with a little gravity you can improve the game a lot.

@Jordan Thanks for the responses, I've made changes accordingly :)

Yeah, I also got 16 :P
It also uses full CPU on my computer (even on the menu?) =(

You should make sure balls don't bounce just straight right and left, that doesn't really count as a point, haha.

Perhaps use trigonometry to make sure all the balls move at the same speed (for some sort of fairness :P)

Otherwise, a fun and kinda addicting game, where are the graphics from? (namely the soccer ball)

Quite hard, but very smooth. I can't break 9 points!
