Hy! I`m working with a friend at a Lines Game project for school and we`re new at this (all the game programming). The problem is that we got stuck at some point in the game developing. To be more precisely we want to implement different types of balls in our game, not only the simple colored ones, but "joker balls", "bonus balls" , and we got stuck at implementing the search algorithm that looks for valid combinations of 5 or more balls, scores them and removes them from the table.
So, if there's anyone on this forum that has developed such a game in the past, including the "special balls" thing and wants to help ... please do so. Thanks
