Rickety Racquet [including Beta download]
« on: January 22, 2015, 07:34:27 pm »


Rickety Racquet is a tricky game of skill where the player has to control teeters to slap a ball through the level in order to hit required targets. The levels grow difficult pretty quickly and the player has to overcome various traps and obstacles or utilize the environment to reach the desired targets. Bonus-goals increase the points earned for each regular target. These points can be exchanged for goodies which make it easier to complete a level or to gain more points quickly.



The game comes in two modes - the regular mode where all targets have to be hit in order to complete the level and a time attack mode where the player has a fixed amount of time in which he can collect as many points as possible. The points can be tracked in a local and in a global online highscore.


The game is planned to be released for Windows, Mac OS X, Android tablets and iPad. The beta version for windows is completed, the ports for other platforms are being worked on (and looking good for Mac and iPad so far, the game is running and only needs minor adjustments). HD versions are planned and more levels and features are still being implemented.

Hi !
I've tried it. It's a very polished physics game, with great graphics and effects.
And it's a lot harder than it seems to in the video :P

I like it! Only thing so far I'd say is to lower the volume of the sound when you mouse over a button. It's a bit loud imo.

Otherwise, like I said, I like it! Good job!

Could add the Arrow Keys for controlling the paddles but that aside good game. :)
I have many ideas but need the help of others to find way to make use of them.

Yay! Nice to see the beta being out. :)

It's a lot more solid than the alpha. Especially the controls feel a lot better.

You can adjust the sound volume in the options menu. Sound and Music are still the biggest issue we have to take care of.

We tried that. Doesn't work. The game requires to move the paddles slow and fast and you can't do that by using the arrow-keys. The game sadly becomes unplayable via keyboard.

I'd love to try this out. Any chance of a Linux version at some point?

Update!

Finally we found the time to port everything. So now we can officially announce that the final game does and will support the following platforms:
  • Windows
  • Linux
  • Mac OS X
  • iOS
  • Android



Thanks to everyone on the SFML-team for helping to kill the SFML-internal issues which stopped us from porting :)
