Thanks for taking part in the game jam! All the necessary parts of the game are right here, and especially if you have enough local players this seems like it could be a bit of fun. Because it's a 2 player game, we weren't really able to demonstrate it on our review video. Well done for making it though, especially if it was under the constraint of a week.

[x/p from thread] Neat aesthetic here!  The slight oddness and weird audio cues really help sell this one.  There's some boundary jank (clipping through the barrier/walls or unexpected reaction of the middle bumper) and it's probably slightly stacked to the front player due to the camera, but besides that it seems pretty decent.  Not a groundbreaking entry but the parts of it it wants to sell it does so well.

Great colours, liked the aesthetic of this one and thought it worked well with the gameplay.  Wish the player moved a little bit quicker as sometimes i knew i wouldn't be able to reach a shot so just left them. The voice melded well with the gameplay and made the game feel more alive which i really liked.

Liked the art in this.  The color choices were great.  The voice-over work was cool too.  Controls were tight.  Noice!!!

You may notice that the game is submitted to another "game jam" on itch.io, however please note that this is being used as the submission portal for a university assignment in games design and is not in reality another jam.

Thanks for letting us know! Being in another jam only hurts ya if your theme adhesion is super weak or nonexistent.
