The idea is interesting, but it is hard to do both tasks at the same time: moving the paddle and trying to understand what the cards do. Maybe you could add a mechanic that puts the game in slow-motion lapse so the player has time to plan which card to use.

I liked the visual style in the cards, and it is a shame that the game doesn't have sound effects and music.

If you could comment and rate our game, we would appreciate it.

Good game and great idea, for me I'd say the final touches to make it a great game are to make the enemy AI a bit dumber (right now it's a little tough with it always tracking the ball), giving it some abilities of it's own to fight back against the player, and a win/fail state that could perhaps lead into different game modes?

Also managed to get the following combo of cards:

  1. Get the double paddle card
  2. Get a couple cards to double your paddle size
  3. Bingo! You now cover the whole of your side of the screen and become unbeatable :D

Thank you! I appreciate the feedback! I'm still trying to get all the basic gui and  cards to work properly. Like the double paddle and double size combo you did, that needs to be fixed. :c 

Once I finish fixing and coding all of those I will move onto win/fail state and maybe a challenge tree with different leveled ai.

Pretty cool concept! I like your theme interpretation :) Would be nice to have more UI elements in order to understand what cards do.

Check our game if you have time! :)
