    Hello gbatemp!
    That's my first post (and homebrew) so please don't kill me if I done something wrong :lol:

    I am releasing LovePong3DS, a Pong-Clone in the LovePotion Engine by VideahGams.

    Everything is working (hopefully :lol:) and I added a little enemy (even though he has no real AI).
    It was my first 3DS Homebrew experience and also my first time dealing with LUA & Love2D so suggestions are appreciated!

    DOWNLOAD: http://iklikla.de/games/LovePong3DS_1.1.zip

    Changelog:
    1.1
    • Real AI
    • three difficulty modes, changeable on-the-fly
    • faster initial ball speed
    1.0
    • initial release

    Thanks to:
    VideahGams (for LovePotion)
    CKlidify (for showing me LovePotion and helping me a bit with some super weird questions like "what is a smdh file")
    CKlidify (helping me with the AI)

    Nice job man, I'll definitely check this out.

    EDIT: Pretty cool! I would maybe make the ball start off a bit faster and see if you can write a better AI for the computer player. But awesome job!

    The 3DS was actually in need of a pong homebrew clone, seeing how there's a bajillion pong homebrew clones for the Wii U homebrew. Good job!

    True.. I really wanted to play a bit with the 3DS Hardware and LovePotion is perfect for people that already develop software!

    Don't know much about programing but would it be possible to add a local multiplayer?

    Yes, and it's planned. One player will use left stick/d-pad and the other player will use c-stick/ABYX.

    I haven't comfirmed with @iKlikla but my idea to enter multiplayer is for both players to also be holding down L and R on their respective side to gain control of the paddle instead of an AI.

    That would be cool, kinda like how the Paper Plane DSiWare game works.
