    I'm a first year computer science student and decided to try out a bit gaming for my project, far from complete but finally starting to look like a game. Any suggestions?

    Had to replicate pang and make my own improvements.

    That looks pretty good. Looking quite polished already. You thinking about going into the games industry when you graduate?

    I'm not actually, I've got a placement opportunity setup for the NCC (world's biggest ethical hacking company) thanks to knowing a few people who work there so I'm pursuing that. Just trying to get a broad variety of stuff from my degree.

    Looks really good. I just completed my first year in a Games Programming degree and I don't think I could make something like that very easily

    What programming language did you use?

    Looks cool.
    Suggestions:
    Maybe have different colour balloons that break up into different amounts of smaller balls + special coloured ball that speeds up every ball it touches?

    Nice. As a gameplay extension, you could add power-ups. As a technical extension, you could add collision detection between the balls and conservation of momentum.
