UPDATE 1.07 - Quick Start Changed From Level 5 .. To Level 10!

Previously, the Quick Start Option was a way to start your games at level 5 with 6 lives and 25,000 points and was unlocked once you achieved level 5 with at least 6 lives and 25,000 points one time on your account.

The Quick Start has been changed in this update 1.07 to an option to start at level 10 with 8 lives and 100,000 points.

The old quick start has been removed and changed now, so you'll need to achieve level 10 with at least 8 lives and 100,000 points to unlock the Quick Start option. .It won't be real easy to unlock this as you'll to make it to level 10 without losing a single life and you'll need to either score a lot of accuracy bonuses if you choose to play without the Electro-Blob in play or still do well even against the Electro-Blob! ..It IS very possible to unlock this new Quick Start however, it just won't be as easy as it was to unlock the previous level 5 Quick Start option.

If you had previously unlocked the level 5 Quick Start, it will not help you with this new Quick Start in this update. Every player will need to unlock this new Quick Start to be able to use it starting with this update.

This was the only change made for update 1.07 but I feel will help experienced players get to the faster and more challenging levels quicker while giving new players a little tougher challenge to unlock this new Quick Start option.

Good luck and have fun! =)

UPDATE 1.06 - Critical Game Sabotaging Bug Fix + More!

I would like to give a HUGE shout out to Steam user Kinzoku for posting a critical bug that would cause you to sometimes no longer be able to finish a game. Kinzoku posted this screenshot in the bug reports forum thread that showed how in one game where a ton of points were scored, the border color suddenly demanded a color that didn't have a matching ball to shoot!
https://puu.sh/BnhKW/4489eb2215.png

I believe I've tracked this bug down, and as usual, it was a super simple mistake made when I was coding my game where I put a 1 instead of the letter l in a variable name. Ugh, silly me!

*-* Update 1.06 also includes all new more efficient ball bouncing code to handle the way the balls bounce against the walls. It was only 13 lines of code removed, but when you realize that your computer reads those lines of code 60 times a second as the game runs at 60 fps and it read those extra lines for all nine balls (if nine balls were bouncing around).. that means this code clean up saved the game needing to read and process 7,020 lines of code every second! (13 lines of code TIMES 9 potential balls TIMES 60 times a second = 7,020)

*-* The update also adds a new line of my voice directing players who start the tutorial on how to use the control panel to use the laser gun to shoot the ball that matches the border color. In watching a recent video of the game played, it was obvious that my tutorial with just text telling the player what to do (and arrows) wasn't quite enough as the video showed the player extremely confused on what to do, even using the tutorial. Hopefully this added voice instruction will help new players understand the basic objective of this game!

*-* One additional voice was added to the game, and that is my sons voice recording which has been added to help warn you when you are standing in harms way of acid filling up in the safe zone. If lives can be saved from being eaten by acid with this new voice recording being added, then it was worth this extra effort! ;-)

Please let me know if this update creates any problems or things you don't like, or if any bugs are found while playing!

I hope you enjoy! =) Thanks again to Kinzoku! This bug report was MUCH appreciated and help makes this game a better experience for all players! <3

About This Game

In this fast and furious game, you play as the last employee left in a hazardous electric company where big bouncing balls have gotten into a short circuited panel!

You'll need to race against time to use a neutralizing laser gun to shoot the colored balls, matching the ball you shoot to the border color. Once you neutralize that ball and turn it white in color, that ball and only that ball is safe for you to touch and collect and deposit in the collection basket.

The action heats up as you progress, getting more and more chaotic and should offer plenty of fun and replay value!

Laser Ball is my recreation of an old Commodore 64 type in classic action arcade game I enjoyed as a teenager. It was originally published in Compute! magazine (Oct 1985) and was called 'Laser Beam".

A Button - to deposit balls in the deposit basket
