Pixel Sports - A Game Where Sports And Cubes Meet!

edited October 2019 in Play My Game
Wait... aren't they squares and not cubes?

In this game inspired by Drive Ahead! and Geometry Dash, you get to play as the blue cube and play 4 sports - Soccer, (American) Football, Hockey, and Golf - and score up to 5 points to win against the red cube. Or fight against the boss if you are looking for a timed challenge. Show the red cubes who is the real boss, and get enough coins and jewels to buy your own outfits* to play in style! But you better not find my vault! It's a secret... Play Pixel Sports now.

Current Version: Beta 1.0
+ Added Soccer, (American) Football, Hockey, and Golf
+ Added a shop*
+ Added settings*
+ Added the boss battle
^ To hit the boss, knock the bomb balls into him once they are about to explode.
^ You only have 5 minutes to take him down.
+ Added coins and jewels
+ Added Treasure Room
+ Added a secret vault
^ Er, what vault?
+ Added Traps and Shield Bombs

Known Issues:
^ Sometimes, texts that are supposed to be invisible are visible. It's a bug with using labels. I will see if I can work my way around the bug.
^ Red cubes will shake in place over the hole in golf if the ball is over them. It's a bug with their "follow the ball" behaviors.
^ Red cubes will slide towards the edge of the screen in boss mode. I will try to give them a more useful purpose.

* Work in progress!

    New Version has been made: Beta 1.1
    This is a small update that mostly deals with some of the bugs found in the game.
    - Removed the borders of some texts/labels in the game, typically those whose opacity changes.
    ^ Some labels/texts will keep their borders
    # Vault is open again, however its entrance continues to remain a secret
    + Treasure room now rewards more coins and jewels
    + Coin and Jewel counter displays the correct number of coins/jewels
    - Due to an issue, Boss mode is temporarily disabled
  • Overall the game is pretty fun! However, the games are all pretty much the same. I love the concept but if you could just make each of the games feel more unique from the others than that would make the game a lot better.

    Oh and also the traps you can make are WAY overpowered.
  • edited October 2019
    @Greggo thanks for the review!

    You are right; I have always thought that the game modes are a bit too similar to one another. I could try making the playing field different from each other (like making it so that the blue and red cubes can only tap the golf ball once before letting the other person have their turn, or one player can).

    And about the traps. Since the traps are part of the Pixel Sports story line, I am keeping them. Same with the shield bombs. But they are quite powerful either way. I could make it so that they are purchasable in the shop, yet be very expensive, or make them a one-time use in each game.

    Overall, I appreciate your opinion of the game.
  • Due to me being at school right now, I cannot play your game at this time. However judging from Greggo's review, I feel like I am going to love it!

    hmm... vault, eh?
  • Another week, another patch: Beta 1.1.1 (updates will likely not be weekly)
    Although the original date is unknown, it was around October 4, 2018 that Pixel Sports has been in development. I plan to upgrade the game further, get ideas from the Flowlab community, and eventually export/release the game into desktop app and, though unlikely, as a mobile app. I thank you all who continue to play Pixel Sports and show attention to the game.

    + Even though the previously mentioned issue in Boss Mode has not been fixed, Boss mode is open again (during weekends only, meaning Saturday and Sunday)
    + Certain texts have been given back their outlines
    + Every year, players who go online on 10/04 will be given a birthday present
    ^ 50 coins and 50 diamonds
    # Jewels have been renamed to diamonds, which may reduce your jewel/diamond count from before. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
  • Just a quick update before I go offline for a while: Beta 1.1.2

    + Added difficulty ratings
    ^ They range from easy, medium, hard, insane, and extreme. You can tell by how angry the face gets over time.
    ^ Additional difficulty ratings include easy death, medium death, hard death, insane death, and extreme death. You can tell by how much the skull cracks.
    - Boss no longer spawns portals when using the super bomb ball
    + New level for soccer: Soccer normal 6
    ^ Rated hard death
    - Game no longer compatible for mobile. This may change in the future.
  • The difficulty rating are similar to the ones I will add to in Beat Boomer. XD. Guess I gotta rename and redo the death difficulties to something else. I also see that you took that inspiration from GMD. Nice!
  • edited October 2019
    Yeah, GMD is one of my most favorite games and I had quite a bit of some inspiration from the game. That being said, I don't want to seem like I am stealing ideas, so not everything in Pixel Sports will come from that game.

    Also @ShadowAxeKid , I don't mind if you use the death difficulties in Beat Boomer, as long as you don't copy the sprites and artworks obviously. It's your choice.
  • I switched the name to rage instead of death. Also, the artwork is far more different than skulls, so you don't have to worry about that.

    GMD is one of my favorite games to lol.
  • There will be a small event for Halloween tomorrow (as of the posting of this comment) where the texture of some of the objects in the game will temporarily change. This isn't exactly an update, as this event will repeat every Halloween. Also, no new game modes, features, etc will be introduced during this event, but there will be new stuff long after the event is gone.
  • edited November 2019
    Happy Halloween, the event is now live, and it has been extended to last until November 3rd.
  • Next update won't happen this week due to medical reasons.

    One last tiny update before the next major one occurs: Beta 1.1.3.

    + Red Cubes now take 2 seconds longer to turn around and chase the ball
    + Replaced the Red Cube in Boss mode with the Husk Cube
    ^ Chases the player and annoys them, and they cannot be stopped

    Upcoming features:
    * Shop almost complete!
    * XP and Levels
    * Easter Eggs
    * Harder Boss Mode (will be a hidden secret)
    * More Chests in the Treasure Room
    * Even rarer currency: emeralds
    * Hero Cube
    * Missions and achievements
    * Better Movements for the Game Select Screen
    * Custom Alerts
    * Custom Mouse pointer
    * Mobile support (in a limited form)
    * More Levels!
    * New game mode: Basketball
    (Note: not all upcoming features are listed. Some upcoming features will not be introduced in the next major update!)
  • The winter event is here!
    From today, December 1st, to New Years Eve, the world of Pixel Sports will be celebrating the holidays with a new ground artwork. As the weeks go by, there will be more winter themed skins for all of the things you see in Pixel Sports.
    This will not stop my progress for Beta 1.2, however. That is coming up probably in 2 weeks.
  • Beta 1.2 is here!
    Some of the changes you see here will be developed further as Beta 1.2 continues.

    + Tutorial for first-time players. (WARNING: Cannot be accessed again, unless you use a different device)
    + Levels and XP: Playing different levels will fill your XP bar. Get 100 XP, and you will level up!
    + Game Select Scrolling has been improved
    + During Christmas, you will be greeted with the sweet message of the holiday season: "Merry Christmas"
    + Every Friday the 13th, the game will reveal its twisted side (Next Friday the 13th coming on March 2020)
    + Custom mouse cursor

    I have already began working on the harder boss. And it will be difficult compared to the current one.
  • Future updates might come a little bit slow.
  • Oh, i liked the game
  • Hey, thanks @Polarbeer2019, glad you enjoyed Pixel Sports. Anyways, there is a little hotfix to the game where the shop is now working good enough to be used by players.

    How does the shop work?
    The shop works like this: if you click on the outfit you want, the shopkeeper, Boris, will check to see if you have enough coins or diamonds to buy the item. If you have enough, the item will be bought. If not, you won't get the outfit.
    How do I equip the outfit?
    To equip the outfit, simply click on the empty box located underneath the outfit name. Now all you need to do is go into the game and press "M" to put on the outfit.

    Note that not all of the outfits may be available for purchase by the time you read this post or go into the game.
  • Merry Christmas everyone! You will be greeted with a sweet message when joining the game.
  • Happy New Year Everyone! 2020 has arrived, and so has Beta 1.2.1. This update is fairly small.

    + Treasure Room gold chest can now be opened, if you have 100 diamonds
    + New currency: emeralds
    * Rarer than diamonds
    * Can only be received by opening the gold chest in the treasure room, 5 emeralds per open

    Emeralds are useless at the moment, so just wait until they are given a purpose.
  • Hey @Superstargames a big problem in your game is that you can score from the top of the net.
  • @Polarbeer2019 Yeah, I wasn't happy with that either, but for some reason whenever I remove the ability to score from the top of the net, the net stops tracking collisions from the balls. Now that you have told me that this was an issue, I will try again to fix this problem. Thanks for telling me!
  • Problem has been fixed (slightly) for the soccer gamemode. I haven't tested everything else, but it should work fine for now. You can no longer score from the top of the net, although the ball can still hit the top right/left of the net and not score a point.
  • Oh but it's still improvement :+1:
  • Just a heads up, the game will take a short maintenance break from 8:00 P.M. to 9:00 P.M. every night so that I can have some time to make changes to the game. This makes the game unplayable until the time has come for it to reopen.
  • Today's maintenance break might have deleted some of your progress with the game. That's not too bad, as you just lose some of the coins, diamonds, and emeralds that are easy, semi-easy, and extremely difficult to get.


    Yeah, that might be a bit bad. Sorry about that! I don't know how it happened though.
  • Crisis averted. All progress you have made now works and saves properly! Now any progress you have previously made before the bug has been restored.
  • that's a great idea can't believe it took me so long to figure out that it existed!
  • A month has passed since last update, so here's a brand new one: Beta 1.3!
    One of the major additions to this update is the Hero!
    + Hero Cube
    * Can be unlocked at Level 10 and be deployed during the boss stage and all death levels by pressing Right Shift
    * Hits sports balls harder, is bigger than the normal cube, is resistant to bounce effects, and can destroy husks with a swing of his sword.
    * Can only be deployed once per match
    * Will be reduced to a normal cube after 20 seconds
    - Bomb balls can no longer score in Golf or on top of the goals
    - Hockey pucks will no longer score from the top of the goal or explode up there
    + The United States outfit is available for purchase for just 500 coins
  • I literally forgot that I wasn't at level 10 yet so bear with me if there are any hero bugs. XD
