OddBall Screenshot Saturday #3

1:11 PM May 19, 2012
I'm on vacation on Saltspring Island, but I'm still doing Screenshot Saturday number three! I'll remind you of my usual disclaimer: these screenshots all contain graphics that are "in-progress" but they do show functional parts of the Oddball game. Today's shot displays some functioning fans that can be triggered on and off.

Fans are environmental objects that strongly affect the yellow spoungy Oddball by pushing it in a direction. This can be an advantage or disadvantage depending on their placement in a level. Addtionally, any Oddball can use the Umbrella Powerup to make it strongly affected by fans while in that mode.

The pink objects in this level are Energy Charges. Collecting these will add points to your score. Your Energy points are used to activate powerups on the Oddballs (every powerup has an Energy "cost" needed to activate it), but your points are also saved and used to access later areas of the game. So your Energy points are an important resource you need to manage and your goal is to complete each level with as many remaining points as possible.
