Santaball - my Christmas gift to you

Hello,

I have tested out the NeoDevKit of Jeff Kurtz recently and have programmed a little game for the Neo Geo CD system.
It is a "Pong"-style game with a Christmas design and it is my Christmas gift to all Neo Geo fans out there. I would be
happy if you would play it on Christmas with your kids or family. Also, it would be great if you would take a photo while
playing Santaball on your TV and post it in this tread.
:snack:

It is a 2-Player game only and the players have to earn nine points to win the game.
The game features are:

-four different ball speeds
(the ball will speed up after 15, 30, 45 and 60 contacts with the rackets)

- three ball angles
(depends on the "contact point" of the ball on racket)

- hand drawn graphics

- background music & sound effects


Here you can download the Santaball ISO
Download it, burn it on a usual CDR, feed your Neo Geo CD and have some Xmas fun!

Here are some screenshots of the game:

Thanks for the comments guys :)

It motivates me a lot to move forward and make a second game. Because with Santaball I have the "ball move engine" already programmed, I think it will be a Breakout/Arkanoid-style game.

It's not the only way but Jeff Kurtz made some fantastic tools to help speed up the process.

That's it!

I haven't burned ISO's in years. What tool can I use? Thanks for the game! :)

You can use ImgBurn - it is a free burning tool that I use personally. It has been successfully tested by myself for burning the Santaball.iso

Very cool, Jojo. Your engine is also the starting block for games like Bang Bead/Flipshot and fan favorite Windjammers. Don't be afraid to get a little crazy with it. You could have a run away hit on your hands.
