Im going to use this thread (mainly this post) to keep people update with my game im working on. PongDS.

The basic concept of it is you hold a DS sideways. A user will use the D-Pad to control there paddle, and another user will use the *other* pad.


Any comments/suggestions will be accepted with open arms.

Also, I am going to need some testers to either test this on a real DS or via emulator (No$GBA would be probly the best for this job).


Update 4: After some hassles with David's server, and it hiding .nds files, I figured I'd just zip both files :P.

You can find the latest release below. The zip contains both PongDS.nds and PongDS.ds.gba. Use whatever your emulator/ds wants (most likly the .nds one).

Release 0.3: 12th June 2008 (1:11am Release)
- Added sound to the game.
- Added single player mode. You can control your paddle with the Left/Right on the d-pad or the A/Y buttons.
- AI has 1 difficulty... I call it "rediculus". It can be beaten though.. its just pretty hard.

Release 0.2: 11th June 2008
Added a main menu. Only the shared ds play works at the moment.
- Using different method for drawing sprites, now middle gap (where mic is) is counted for.
- Numerous speed improvements.
- Fixed bug: Ball speeds going faster/slower depending what way ball is heading.
- Ball bouncing off bat improved.
- Possible bug: Ball hugging the wall after you hit it. (Please tell me if this happens).


Release 0.1: 10th June 2008
- No AI.
- No pause.
- No standby.

To use this, you turn your DS sideways, and you (player one) will use the Left/Right d-pad buttons to move your paddle (on your left), and someone else (player two) will use A/Y to control their paddle (on their left).

Please post comments and bugs :).


Latest Release : PongDS_0.3.rar

I'll test it out when you get it finalized, will probably test it out with my GF.

Do you plan to include WiFi capabilities in the future?

Because this is awesome :P.

This was the official thread I think, so all reviews I got, linked to this aswell.

Theres been talk on the palib forums about features to ad. Things like taito paddle, for classic pong like play.. ect ect.

Working on an Assignment, which will hopefully be on DS to. Then AsteroiDS, then this again.
