@Boboto yeah part of why I don't really want to add a jump is because I think it might be /too/ close to Lethal League by then, as well as make the game too easy. I'll think about it, though.

Nice work, really fun to play. It's got a good amount of difficulty. I'm not really a fan of how you static you instantly become when swinging. As previously stated in these comments, a little bit of skid or a mobility while swinging would be nice.

Also, as Yomic said, a jump would be great. Even if you can slide through the attacks an extra dimension is really nice. I'd like to also swing in the air or something. Maybe I've played too much lethal league.

Excellent! Game looks super cute. The celebration animation is particularly good. Feels great to play, getting a big combo was fun. I got to level 4, and the difficulty curve was great. Always felt engaged and challenged. I liked that you could hit the enemies with your ball.

A few things that might improve it:

Like crab said, some skid when you swing would be really good. Get some juice on destroying the blocks. It's the most fundamental thing you do and should feel awesome when you blast one, and 10x as awesome when you have a big combo going. I had trouble getting use out of the slide. Once there were a lot of enemies, it was somewhat useful in getting through their projectiles. But I still feel it could be much more fun and useful. What if it also functioned as a hit, or you could hit while sliding. Sliding into the ball to catch it just in time and keeping your combo going would be amazing. What if you could hit the projectiles to dissipate them?

Keep up the great work!

Cute art style, super fun to play.

I would probably add a charge swing, making the ball go through blocks while breaking them when going up.

  • I'd like to see some feedback for when the ball is off screen.
  • Don't abruptly stop when you swing while moving. skid a little bit.
  • Ball physics seems a little weird when bouncing on blocks. Can't really describe it
Good concept and art. Lots of promise.

Just so you guys know, you can dodge bullets with the slide. The slide actually has invincibility frames.

Pretty solid game! Great pixel art and animation. The only thing I'd consider is maybe a jump to make it easier to dodge the bullets that come at hard to dodge angles. Maybe improve the block graphics as they look somewhat plain compared to the rest of the art. And particle effect explosions when they break!
