Pwong 3

Hi everyone,

I am the creator of the Pwong series and I am thinking about making a third one. If you haven’t played Pwong yet, here’s the Link: http://www.kongregate.com/games/JGames/pwong-2

I would be happy if you could take this survey about Pwong 3 to help me make it as awesome as possible.

Thanks,
Jonas

Note: I am only thinking about Pwong 3 at the moment. Until I actually have the time to make it could still be quite a while.

Here are my suggestions:
Upgrade system
Show the upgrade increments on the screen e.g. make them boxes or have small dividers in the bar so we have a clue about how many steps there are to an upgrade.
Make upgrades more meaningfull. I did not notice a terribly large increase in raising my paddlesize by 25% of the available upgrades.
Include different upgrades so players can have a more varied experience. Perhaps include mutually exclusive upgrades so you can build a certain style of paddle. Examples would be differntly curved paddles, different speeds, fixed powers (like barriers, sticky mode,ball attractors, deployable gravity fields) or modifiers on the bouncing speeds.

game modes
The current game modes (easy,normal,hard,extreme,insane) are just difficulty settings right now. Perhaps those should be divided into a regular game mode (until a set amount of points is reached)
a timed mode (play for x minutes, highest score wins)
a challenge mode (play until you failed to keep x balls)

presentation
See if you could have a bigger field, the current one seems a wee bit on the small side.
I’ld rather have a thinner particle effect behind the balls.
Otherwise it looks good, perhaps a bit of background behind the action ?

I miss a soundeffect when balls hit the paddle. Something subtle, nothing major.

Although I said this on the survey I think it would be awesome to have a 4 way battle which you do it in teams or singularly

i have a good idea for a mode where you have four paddles and you control them all with the mouse and theres a hole in the middle that spits out balls in all derections and you have to hit it back in to get points.It would be sparta if it was insane modeXD

Go “creat” yourself some grammar first.

More songs! I get tired of Popcorn!

more song choces plzz

I filled up the survey. One main suggestion for upgrade is gravity ball, in which the balls actually curve and do not move in a straight line, making the game more challenging.

Awesome ideas:

Song select
Have many more awesome songs but in a playlist (also maybe have the z and x keys to change songs in-game).
Different types of games
Maybe have a square-mode like what SirSonic said, a survival mode where you have a certain amount of lives instead of points, an arcade mode (where you have to aim at targets or even avoid the balls for once) and even online battles on Kong(like survival battles, normal battles and maybe co-op mode).
More powerups!
Have weapons (laser, homing bullets etc.), safety nets, possibly even miniature helper paddles?
iTunes
Definately put this on iTunes like szerro said. I would so buy it and so would 1000s of other people. Also make it bluetooth 2-player. That would be sweeeet

K thats all

Obstacles.
Whether each level has set obstacles, or they’re randomly appearing, I still think they’d be pretty sweet.

One thing I forgot to mention in the survey: an option to play costum music from your computer, much like the recent LongAnimals game (Drift Runners 2 comes to mind) would be very much appreciated.

Is this thread still checked by the dev? Was written Sep 3, 2010.

I liked Pwong 2 – but I never really got how the score is calculated. I once had a 99% accuracy, but a way lower score than somebody else with only 97%. Really confusing if you’re going for a high score and don’t what actually has to be done to achieve it.

Jup, I’m still reading this, keep it coming!

@Gama11: Whenever you miss a ball your score gets decreased, and whenever your opponent misses a ball your score gets increased. The more balls are in play the less it counts if you miss one.

Ive got an idea, why not add a “boss battle mode” (or any other name you want to call it.) You cant get power-ups here but instead your opponent does. ITS THE ULTIMATE PWONG CHALLENGE.

MOAR ACHIVEMENTS
The ability to play on the sceen without actually playing, like a practice mode

And that’s it.

Edit: ZOMG second page!
