Beta Play Test
I wanted to make a spin on ping pong that isn't general power-ups, so I set it on a cartesian grid.  Different power-ups perform geometric transformations such as reflections, rotations, and translations across quadrants.  There are also dilations on the ball and paddles.

The prototype is made in Flash and ActionScript.  I also integrated the Kongregate, Newgrounds, and Facebook API's.  SmartFox Server made it possible to do multiplayer, and I made the test art with Flash and Fireworks.

At first I thought it would be a way to teach geometric transformations and made a one-page visual design showcasing that, but it proved to be a hectic fun time.  Especially when getting two-player going.

Tools: Flash, ActionScript, Kongregate API, Newgrounds API, Facebook API, SmartFox
Adapted a mobile version of the game using Torque, as part of the iRon Sports series.
