PADDLE FORCE is a fast-paced update of the classic pong game designed for head to head play. Score to expand your terrain until you control the entire board and win, using zany power-ups to help you along the way.

Controls

PADDLE FORCE is best enjoyed with a friend and two gamepads. You can also play with the keyboard.


How to Play

  • You can only move within your side of the board
  • Score on the opposing goal to expand your terrain.
  • When you capture the whole board, you win!
  • Hit Powerups into the opposing goal to activate them.

Known Issues
  • When a  gamepad is connected via USB and Bluetooth simultaneously (e.g. a PS4 controller), it will act as two distinct gamepads. If this happens to you, choose one or the other: disconnect from bluetooth or unplug from USB.
  • PADDLE FORCE runs best in Chrome and support for other browsers is highly experimental for now.
  • Sometimes, you're unable to select gamepads for both players on the splash page. However, this does not affect your ability to use them in-game. Choose gamepad for one player and keyboard for the other, and you will be able to use both gamepads when the game starts.

Excellent twist on a classic, flobotron. I've become really attracted to small, local multiplayer games like this lately and I think this is the best one I've found on itch.io.

Granted, your foundation here is a golden classic, but you've twisted  and improved the rules and mechanics to the point where it feels like a truly new game. Congrats on the release of a fantastic game! <3

For some reason I can't download it using the itch.io client. How do I fix this?

(Edited 2 times)

Hey Pootis, I put the Windows and Mac downloads in a Google Drive folder, let me know if these work for you.

Also, do you mean the installable itch.io client? Are you seeing some kind of error when you try?

(Edited 4 times)

Yes. When I install it, it gets stuck at about 75% in the install phase. Also, if I quit the client and open it back up, it will have the Lauch button but 'no executables were found' and I can't uninstall it for some reason.

EDIT: The zip file works! Thanks a lot for the help!

EDIT 2: Comodo Firewall keeps saying that the game needs to gain an elevated privilege, it's saying that PADDLE FORCE is trying to execute PADDLE FORCE and that it wants to modify a protected registry key. This seems to freeze the game.

EDIT 3: I just have to allow everything! By the way, you did an amazing job at upgrading Pong! Keep it up and thanks for the help!
