Another labor of love. A fun, quick game. There's a bunch of medals in there, hopefully, and Newgrounds users can compete to hit the high score board!

Once I get enough complaints, I'll throw more stuff up here. For you non-Americans, all prices are in American dollars.

Edit 1: Yes, Plinko is mostly a game of luck. Look it up on YouTube. And some users have asked to be able tp drop the chip wherever one pleases. Since the Plinko board is basically a giant binomial distribution machine, it would make very little difference in the end result to have you guys drag the chip anywhere you want. Trust me, I've thought of this stuff.

Edit 2: Fixed a bug, resetting the high score board.

It's OK, I guess...

I like the idea of the game. But my gripe is the animation of the Plinko chips themselves. It's was very dull and not at all like when you watch the the game show itself. The real chips are similar to a pinball in that they bounce and ricochet off the pegs. And at least the real contestants had more of choice when placing the chips.

Some minor change requests

I'm not going to talk about the purely random nature of it, as others have already done that at length I'm sure. I do, however, have a few more reasonable requests.

1) Could you put all the Continue buttons in the same place on the screen so we can more quickly click through?

2) Since those of us who are after medals will be playing this game hundreds of times, could you have it skip the animated intro on multiple playthroughs? By the twentieth game I'm pretty sure I know I'm playing Plinko, no need to keep announcing it.

3) I keep clicking on the number rather than the phrase that says "the first number is 6." Any chance of making the numbers clickable too?

Physics, Physics, Physics.

Let the player choose EXCACTLY where they want thier chip dropped, and then make it a physics, and not luck based game from there on out. I would look at the game Sushi Cat as a good reference to what YOU should have done with this game. Overall, though, you still did a pretty good job and the game had an authentic feel to it, and I LOVED that it actually used my newgrounds account name in game, that was cool. Achievments were nice, but really not related to skill in any way, so they're not really worth much. Beyond that, I would suggest adding a "sandbox mode" where you get unlimited chips that you can plink to your hearts content.


pacdude responds:

Considering that after you release it, the chip still takes its random bounces down the board, physics wouldn't make the game skill based. The game is still a game of luck, physics or not.

Fun time waster. Physics WOULD add a difference.

It can be fun for a bit. Although you are wrong that adding physics wouldn't add anything, it would. The Plinko board doesn't decide where the chip will go by using 1s and 0s like this game. Where and how you toss the chip on a Plinko board affects how and where the chip will drop.

Also just a little heads up to people trying for Barkers Pride I was lucky enough to get 5 chips in $10,000 and I got no medal so it seems it is broken...

The medals are fucking stupid

WTF, why have such un-obtainable medals? NO ONE will play this for that long to get those, it becomes boring fast. Good game, well done but make it last longer and don't make the medals so ridiculously stupid. God..
