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 game is educational and informative. I like how it incorporates pollution and smoking facts into the project in the introduction. It was great that the video game visually illustrate the massive amounts of cigarette butt liter in that mountain as big as an airplane and the disgusting dirty beach. It was smart to also incorporate all of this with the game of Pong - it kept me fixated on those dirty cigarettes about to fall into the ocean.
This is awesome! Your presentation of facts, development and conclusion was clear and thoughtfully presented. The actual game was fun and engaging and I think appropriate for many ages. The graphic design was also great! I see a future for you as a game designer! I encourage you to explore that more.
Lenin, this is amazing! It is a game that folks of all ages would love to play. And it is a fresh take on a classic. So it is timeless as well. I would encourage you to continue to develop this further and consider including more story element and facts to ensure players are kept informed throughout the game.
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.
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?
Great work! Love the idea about integrating health and maintaining the environment!
