OK just excited that I finally have a game that is attracting some attention and made it to the top games list on Scirra arcade.
Now before anybody rains on my parade you should know I have worked really hard to finally get a game that people like and will come back and play over and over and many of my games have been duds so take this as my way of encouragement and saying to keep trying and don't give up just because some of your games bomb. Rework them or learn from them and the feedback you get and put that to use in your next game.
I learn something from every game I make and new ways of doing things and new effects and I collect sprites and sound effects in my library and skills for my next project from every game. I have over 20 games published on Scirra but probably well over a 100 games that I never finished for one reason or another.
So here is my Pinball Sandbox with new Simpson's playfield and I am proud of this game so far and will continue to make it better and I hope people appreciate the hard work and time that goes in to our games.
Check it out and play the different playfields and let me know what you think please!
Updated Pinball Sandbox with Simpson's Theme Fan Game:
I also tweaked the flipper and ball for better finite control and added some grit to the ball so you can aim it very accurately. You can really control the ball about as well as in real pinball now with a little practice.
The game scoring and missions are still in development but you can see where I am headed.
I am working on the editor and also a mobile version and flat screen editor version for people that want to design their own games.
I have a website set up now so I can start promoting the game and sandbox editor when it is finished:
Now you can create your own Pinball games using accurate physics and objects or select from themes I will create.
This is a Demo of the controls and features for feedback purposes.
I have been working hard on the Pinball Sandbox Editor and I have the controls working but not all the objects can be modified or created yet.
Here is the Demo:
Themes: Click to choose Soccer theme (more themes coming)
Play: Closes the editor
Color: click on color and then object to color and color on primary board (only yellow)
Move: Click on object and then right click to place
Bigger Smaller: Changes size of objects
Copy: Right click to place
Create: Opens object window. left click to select and right to place
Delete: Deletes playfield objects
Change wall, floor, and cabinet by clicking on Labels
Save and Load to Save your creations to share (Only one creation)
Lock does not work in Arcade version.
I intend to have at least 5 sport themes to choose from and maybe a Zombie. I have to create assets for each game and design the layout so that take a lot of time. I will have many more wall and floor choices and stickers and other play elements in the next update. This was just to test the controls and get feedback.
The plan is to make this a stand alone game and also a mobile game and maybe get it on Amazon Games and Steam. You will be able to create several of your own pinball games to share with friends and modify them at any time. There will be many more assets in the paid version and you will be able to lock a game so no one else can edit it and have more saves.
This is a large game file so the first time you run it may take 5 minutes to load. Don't get upset and go have a cup of coffee and come back.
If you are still seeing the old version you need to clear you Browser Cache images and downloads.
