    How did they make this? This blows away every other widget.

    I just got done hosting a game and used my other mouse (Can't use a one button mouse in this game! LOL) and everyone kept blasting me with the rocket launcher while I kept sniping everyone in the head from half way across the map and I won, yippie!

    Hello,

    Thanks for the feedback. PP originally was an internal tech demo for testing our networked physics solution, it was quite fun, so we turned it into a FaceBook app and a dashboard widget.
    You can play on FaceBook @ http://apps.facebook.com/paradisepaintball/ (it's keeps you and your friends ranking)

    We'll launch a new site soon, with a PC and Mac download, and also some new features / bug fixes. Stay tuned :)

    Best regards
    Shaun

    Thanks for that awesome and fun little game. Yeah I do notice little bugs that's fine and reasonable for a free game. How long has this been out because I just saw it yesterday? Also thanks for signing up to MR to comment.

    btw. undocumented feature: hold down 'C' to enter sniper mode. Happy one-button-mouse-blasting!

    It was released on Apple last Saturday. We passed 100k downloads today.

    No problem - it's great to hear people like the game. There's a few late nights and annoyed girlfriends behind this. Oh well :)

    Two bugs I am having.
    1) Using a logitech mx revolution, it only responds when I hold down the fire(left mouse) button. So I can't aim unless I am firing.
    This is fixed when I go fullscreen, but creates the next bug.
    2) When in fullscreen there is a sound made for holding down keys, such as 'w'. It is repeated every quarter second or so, because it thinks I am hitting a key that is not valid. Or something. It makes the "You can't do that right now" sound. :apple:

    Yeah it can unfortunately get very choppy and laggy when playing with others. I can play on highest settings with 30+ FPS though [:(] Wish I could get that when playing with others. I just got done playing a game and got 26 kills lol 1st place. The game is obviously more fun with 5+ people but way too much lag and choppy frame rates brings the fun down a little.

    I love this widget. I just LOVE sniping. It's so much stinking fun.

    BTW, does anyone else know how to get on top of the big mountain other than me?

    Tee hee.:p

    Nice game

    But there is not a guideline of what the little pills are for. I figured out most of them.

    And I still don't know how to respawn.

    But, it's been one of the most fun casual games I've played.

    Yeah I like the Moses pill where you can walk on water :D You should automatically respawn though :confused: I don't remember pressing anything, it just automatically respawns you.

    Respawn

    No, i know that there is a way to respawn at will. I just don't know how. I've been trying to figure out. Some pills I can't figure out what they are good for.

    Wow, I never knew Dashboard can do widgets this sophisticated!

    Clearly there is a LOT of untapped potential with the Dashboard, I just wish it's a bit more popular so more people would develop for it.

    I, too, am having trouble with a network connection with the widget. It keeps getting an error testing my internet connection so I couldn't play multiplayer. Anyone else?

    Wow I haven't played this game in such a long time. Mainly because I haven't had a Mac. I can try on my iBook G4 really quick to see if I have any problems. It could just be the widget or the recent update?

    Not working for me either, maybe their servers or are down or something?
