I'm developing on a remake of the arcade game Swing Plus -Total Mindcontrol from Software 2000.
I think it's more than a Tetris clone and worth to be coded in a new version. The final game should have a tutorial, a multilayer option, many extras (like jokers, bombs etc.) and of course a high score list.
The game play will be completely different in new version, as soon I as I can implement the scales which can catapult balls through the game.
Here is my first playable alpha version: (it's already very funny
Current version: v0.354
- Spiffy addictive gameplay
- Hot Seat multiplayer mode
- 45 Challenging Levels
- Offline and online high score
- Particle and sound effects
- Multilingual (German and English)
The objective is to simultaneously disband as many heavy balls as possible. To do this, simply place three balls with the same color in a horizontal row. Now these and all adjoining balls of this color will explode. Five balls of the same color in a column will shrink to one heavy ball. Every 50 balls a new color will be added. Pay attention not to place more than eight balls on one stack.
Left/Right: Move the canon
Down: Drop a ball
N: New Game
B: Change the ball set
E: Disable particle effects
ESC: Exit the game
The background is captured and resized from the original game. I'll redesign it soon.
I'll be happy for any feedback.
Best wishes to all other game programmers,
