Well, after 2 weeks I have to apologize, because I couldn't finish BlockStorm BETA 2 in time, BUT that's because thanks to some comments here in MODDB I started to think what could happen if I include some new features to make this mod more attractive. Just break blocks is not funny at all, I should find a way to make the player enjoy with the game. So, I included the Score Counter, and that's a real improvement in BlockStorm... but... this mod was so close to PONG, and that's suppose to be just a few more entities to make it possible! A few? Well, now I cannot count how many entities I needed to make the new BlockStorm's PONG Experience become real, but finally I did it! The result is just impressive if you realize that EVERYTHING HAS BEEN DONE JUST IN HAMMER. I know that I repeat this all day long, but some people cannot believe it. After finishing BETA 2, I will work in a "Making off" of this mod, to let the people know how a mod can be developed in Hammer. I know some people are really interested on that.

So, here some screenshots to see by yourself what I'm talking about. PONG in Source, my friends:

I would like to mention that I have done this PONG mode to make the player be an important piece of the game. You can replace textures in the "Character selection" menu to have your own portrait in the game, and you can even use your own sounds for your "name", "goal", "victory" and "lose" events. I thought was really funny include features like this, inspired in one of my favourites games: Worms. So, you can make you and your friends characters of this game really easily!

Of course, there are two gamemodes... "Player VS COM" and "Player VS Player".

You can download a video in Hi-RES (30 Mbs / WMV) Here or you can watch it in my beloved YouTube.

I hope you will enjoy with all this stuff next week... hopefully!

Thanks to Vek, Nokya, _David_ and Quartz (who is getting married the day after tomorrow) for supporting me all this time!

And sorry for my english... It's hard to explain all of this when you're not using your mother tongue. Greetings for all spanish people! ;)

I think, the ball needs to be more smooth and fluent when it hits the wall, it seems it pauses and then goes, like a small delay but noticeable, looks fun tho :D, i like the fatures u have planned

I cannot see Combine Tech... I just see some futuristic computers and screens models. ;)

The ball physics make it a little hard to hit due to its occasional unpredictability, but other than that, awesome work! :)

No, BlockStorm multiplayer means that you can play agains another player in the same screen... ;). Like the old PONG.
