This is a game i made in college, in Flash. It was an assignment in development computer games. Due to reviews i need to point a few things out, it's not a rant or anything.

The first: The save file corrupted, so i was unable to make a menu, score etc. I'm having to rebuild it, and add it all in.

The second: I wasn't able to change the music, i was planning to have loops on a menu and ingame, however like i said: Save file corrupted. It kinda destroyed up to that, since i forgot to make back-ups. Like an ass.

The third: I plan to change the ball to an actual Nyan cat, with a rainbow tail that fades. I also plan to correct the stars so they appear and disappear properly, but the effect has worked nicely how it is, it just needs changing.

The fourth: I plan to add score, and a timer, as well as make the paddles and the ball faster. Though i have no real experience in flash, i'd love for other users to help out. I have a game manual, and i'm perfectly happy to revise it if anyone does help with any form of code. P.s it's written in AS2.

The fifth and final: Like i said previously, save file corrupted, i'm looking for good points and bad points primarily, any coding help is very much appreciated. I do plan to bring this out for Android phones, and it would be free because i'm such a nice person. Coding help, feel free to inbox me.

I hope this was a test

Horrible music for this kind of game.
I loved how radical the direction change was, that's all.

iVx responds:

When i designed it, i thought to make the change, since it makes it different. And the music quality needs improving, it sounds alot clearer when you actually listen to the song.

Thanks for the review!

Bad even for a Pong remake.

One of the biggest problems for me, other than being just another Pong remake, was the speed. Everything was a bit too slow. It wasn't uncommon for the ball to hit each side of the screen over and over again, taking several seconds to get to the other side and making the game somewhat boring.

Another thing I didn't like was the music. I don't know who had the idea of making a jazz version of the nyan song, but it wasn't a very good one.

People find this review helpful!

I have to admit since i wasn't able to make the change to the speed, it can be quite annoying. Once it's been rebuilt, and i've made V1.1, i'm adding alot of content which can now be seen in the actual commentary for the game.

Thanks for the review, it was really helpful!

Everything's nyan-nyan, but...

...Well, i don't think i'm the first to write that, nevertheless, why not make a simple menu in order for game not to start immediately.
What concerns the game's advantages and drawbacks, it's all hard to decide, 'cause everything depends on a person. Well, for example, there's no score, and win/lose situation is symbolic enough, so it's very nice to play without worrying about the result and just to have fun! but some people like to see results, so ... well, you understand what i mean ^_^" The next is the music. Also: depends. If a person is patient enough, she/he will not care about the song playing again and again. As for me, i love it! ^.^ (though, i don't know where it is from) However, some people are not likely to enjoy listening a song for more than 5-10 min. Speaking about graphics, you can just improve its style whenever you'd like to, e.g. make some lines less strict; but please leave the snow! it's good =)
Well, that's all. There we have a funny game that can let people relax or just enjoy the process.

iVx responds:

Thank you! I completely agree, due to the .fla file corrupting and me being a penis and not making backups of the file, i wasn't able to add it. I plan to add alot more content with V1.1 which i hope to release soon!

Thank you for the review, it really helped!
