My project is an impact game, “Smoke Pong”, a pong game that addresses a prompt, A clean and happy Earth, where the issues is that cigarettes and e-cigarettes are contributing to Earths mounting toxic litter problem and the pollution of the oceans. I wanted to bring awareness to an issue so I did this with what I learned in school Photoshop and coding video games. The idea evolved to not just be a game but an impact game, informing and teaching players about the health and environmental issues related to smoking and littering. So in my game the player moves the paddle with their mouse, bouncing cigarettes and juuls away from the ocean. The player starts with 3 lives and needs a score of 20 to win the game..

This is a great game! Way to mix a well known game with a new twist on it to promote your cause! I wonder if you could do more to teach facts about the dangers of smoking when the pong is missed?
Firstly, I really enjoyed playing this game! I might have to go back and play again. Second, the game does a really good job of TELLING A STORY! It's very clear to the player that the stakes are high and that we can apply these to our real lives as well. The video description of the game is a compelling piece for the pitch as well.
Great work! Love the idea about integrating health and maintaining the environment!
