Introducing Classic Pong for Windows Phone
I decided to take a break from Flashdeck a few weeks back as I was getting fatigued and frustrated at making the same thing for so long and I had encountered a few challenges. In that time I’ve worked on a fun side project in XNA.
I decided to make a Pong clone for Windows Phone and it is finally finished. Features include:
- Classic Pong gameplay
- Use the colours of your Windows Phone theme
- Use the orange and blue colours of Valve’s Portal game
- Sound effects
- Two game speeds
- Multiple score limits
- Persistent settings
- Share your scores on social networks
- Play by yourself against a AI opponent, or against a friend in multiplayer
It’s been good making something in XNA again after Sweepy Cleaner, and not as challenging, which is what you want in the Summer break. I submitted the game today, so should be up on the Windows Phone Marketplace next week. I’m looking forward to it!
