About You Beach
What the hell is You Beach?
You Beach is a simple one or two player game. It is meant to be a fun quick and dirty game to enable you (and a friend/enemy if you so choose) to kill a few minutes in a fun way.
I am pretty sure you are not an artist! Who did the graphics?
It's true, I am not. The graphics were made by Ilias Sounas, an excellent graphics artist, animator etc. and a very good friend. You can find him and his work by clicking here
How do I play?
Each player controls a small dude on either side of the screen. You can make your little dude move left, right or jump. The purpose of the game is to hit the (gigantic, I know) ball in such a way that it touches the opponents half. You can hit the ball up to 3 times before it goes over the net. In case the ball hits the ground in your half or you touch the ball more than 4 times, the opponent will get a point. Of course the same goes for the other player.
Yes but HOW do I play?
Sigh. First download the installer from here. Then install and run it. Change any options you might want to change from the menu and start the game.
You can use either the keyboard (keys A,D,W for Player 1 and the arrow keys for Player 2) or joystick(s) to control the player(s). You can choose your controller(s) in the options.
Cool! Are there any other options?
There are some other fun options included. Try changing the CPU difficulty, the net height and the ball weight for different game styles.
What was used to write this game?
The game was written in C++ using Bloodshed's DevCPP for Windows(excellent opensource frontend for opensource MinGW) and SDL with OpenGL for Graphics. So everything is open and free. How nice.
Where is the source code?
The source code is not available(yet). I might release it later on if there is demand.
Why are you doing this?
For fun. Games are fun, game developing is fun.
I had lots of fun with your game at the office, what can I do in return for you?
Well, you could always spare a dollar or two (or more). That would make me really happy! Please use the Donate button on the left to do so!
Your game sucks/I have problems/It will not run etc.
If you think you have some constructive criticism, feedback etc. please contact me describing your problems or complaints. Please remember that this is a free game, before starting being too harsh on it/me.
Also, please read the disclaimer on the left before running the game.
I want some part of your work for my own project! I also want to sell the graphics and make money!
