I'm terribly sorry for the inconvenience, but by the end of the jam the game was broken and not fun at all. That's why I'm removed it and remaking it right now. I think you'll have to give this submission a pass. If I manage to complete the remake before the judging ends I'll try to notify you.

That's a feature that we were going to explain to the players in the later parts of the game. Originally it wasn't intended but after we found out that with this bug and enough skill you were able to wall climb, pogo-jump and perform way more impressive things than without it we decided to keep it.
Yet another reimagining of classic pong. The graphics are simple yet stylish and the gameplay is pretty self explanantory. One thing i'd like to note however, is how meaty the impacts feel. I'm sure quite a bit of time went into perfecting how this game feels.
P.S. The distribution of roles in the credits is pretty ironic.
As someone who values gameplay the most, I'd like to say that this game is brilliant. This is the most fun I've had in a multiplayer game in a while! The mechanics are fun, yet easy to understand. I'd also like to note how much effort went into improving the gamefeel. This game feels like a breath of fresh air, I'm sure it would sell like hotcakes with some proper marketing and a slight change in the visuals.
The controls are pretty solid, the game feels great and the ideas present allow for some great meatboy esque level design where you speed down a level in 1 continuous motion.
However, I've noticed that a lot of such level design potential is wasted. The first level is pretty smart in terms of how it presents the game's ideas. However, the second level is where I quit. The level in an of itself is decent, however, the place where the player is respawned is fucked up in every way. The spike in the beginning defeats all the speed I might've enjoyed and makes trial and error INFURIATING. Please overlook your level design and after a bit of polish this may just turn out to be the next big thing.
P.S. Adequate controller support would add a lot to the experience.
Post any suggestions for future development, things you wish were in the game or the problems you've encountered.
Boomchick is still in the early stage of its development, so we are eager to hear what you want us to improve on.
