Hey there all together,

This is my entry to the PVB coding competition.
My project combines the titles Pong/arkanoid and Space invaders in one game and is called "pongInvaders".
I Just started coding for the VB and this is my first project for this device. There is still some work to do. You can expect regular updates in the next weeks but for today ive got the basic system finished and thought that i upload it so you guys can give me feedback about this little game.

Wow, that was fast! Pretty good game as well, what a great idea to combine those two games.

For me, in both Reality Boy and Mednafen, your calibration screen is screwed up. The splash screen code I posted in the rules thread earlier had that issue fixed. (And if neither of you are having that issue, then what am I doing wrong?) Also: The ball displays in Reality Boy, but not mednafen... I haven't looked at your code so I couldn't tell you what the deal with that is.

But sorry about my criticism, it's a really great first project! I never even finished my project for the last competition...

It looks very promising! I really like the idea, and it's rather fun as well.
:D

Thx for the positive feedback.

As said Ill work in on this game and update it as often as i can. Sadly i can just work on it at weekends as im a littlebit busy at the moment with school and work but there are many ideas that i want to integrate such as different enemys, diferent levels, powerups, Bossenemys and stuff like that.

Fwirt: Im currently testing Ponginvaders via Realityboy where everything gets displayed as it should.
I also dont know if this works on real hardware cause i dont have a VB. Would be cool if someone wants to test it on actual hardware and give feedback as i want it to be playable on the real thing. But for that i have to learn a few more things about how stuff actually works on the VB.
As for the calibrationscreen I think it looks messed up for me too but i thought thats just the way it has to look =P.
Ill try to integrate your calibration screen in the next update.

akumie: I found out about this competition and the whole VB-scene by accident on sunday. while browsing through the web and searching for NDS coding competition on google. I found this page and read some news storys after that i got realy excited about coding for the VB and thought i should give it a try.
But ive seen your video. I think it needs a little bit more action but its a nice efford none the less.

You all can expect a little update by the end of the week on sunday.

Looking good so far. Might want to change the typo tho. It's "lives" not "lifes".
