After a fantastic semester of playing with Stencyl, gaming.js, and Unity, I have finally put together a basic pinball game. It isn't perfect...the game never actually ends, and the physics have some more tweaking, but...it plays. There have been a lot of changes since the last prototype. In addition to basic bumpers, I have added triangle bumpers, a plunger simulator, drop targets, and lanes for the ball. Also, the game now keeps score, and it counts down your remaining balls. I have learned so much this semester, but as you can see, I have only touched on the basics of writing this game. The world of battles and levels and wormholes I envisioned isn't quite here, but now that I have the foundation, I can continue building upon this fantasy world of which I dream.
In the following video, I discuss my vision and strategy as I build the game, and there is a brief clip at the end of the game in action:
If you would like to try the game for yourself, please feel free to play it online.
I hope you enjoy, and Happy Holidays!!
