Title: AchBall is now available on Steam
Post by: achpile on September 27, 2017, 04:38:19 pm
I decided to remaster a game I made 7-8 years ago :D Gameplay is very simple - you must hit the target by the ball. Each wall hit gives you 10 points. Yeah, that's all ;D

To make gameplay more interesting there are different achievements, leaderboards and some different things on stages, like moving platforms, fragile blocks etc.

Depending on how much there is and how hard it is to translate well I could do English -> Polish. I'd want to get Russian copy of the text too, just to take a look at phrasing to compare.

Not a native speaker, but I know Spanish fairly well. Could at least start a translation for it.

Hi achpile

Isn't there a way to download or play the game or I can't find it? It seems it is just a trailer ... ?

I am from Bs As, so a native Spanish speaker, I don't want to steal the job to dabbertorres, but if you need translation (from English) to Spanish then shout to me

Hello Tigre Pablito :) Sorry, dabbertorres already working on it :)
For now there's no way to download it. I'll release it on steam hopefully next month :)

The language line up is going to look impressive.
What do you have so far achpile?
I'm asking because I see you didn't announce the little extra I arranged so maybe there are more unannounced languages. ;)

I have to point out that, although it looks like a really good game, the title in english sounds a lot like ball ache (https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/ball-ache) which is uh... not so good :S

The German short description sounds really awkward. Suggestion:

"AchBall ist ein einfaches Gelegenheitsspiel, in dem du einen Ball ins Ziel bringen musst. Triff die Wände so oft wie möglich, um mehr Punkte zu bekommen."

The long description is weird as well. Tell me if you need any assistance with that as well. ;)

2 typos fixed — which is very ironic and awkward in itself, lol. Thanks eXpl0it3r for pointing it out.
