Let people know how long this project has been going, or share a bit of its history.
I initially made a prototype of this game many years ago in Java. Two years ago I made a new prototype in Javascript. Now I finally finished and published a version of the game, this time in Godot.

The mechanics of the pendulum is extremely intriguing. I found it very satisfying. The particle/special effects were good. The levels were fair. The game definitely has a lot of potential. That's not to say it's not already an awesome game! I can definitely see how one may find this game addicting :)

Thank you very much! I'm glad you liked it. I continue improving the game and will launch new version soon, with many new levels, a new game mode and other improvements following suggestions people gave me. Thanks!

Pretty cool game ! It was very fun to control the pendulum and swing it around. I think if you start going to fast though, it stops registering collision with stars and I’m not sure how to slow it down. Very nice mechanic and game overall! 

Please check out my game ! :D Escape Path Beta

Very cool idea, it has the potential to turn into an addicting game or quite already is, only thing is that when you're moving too fast you won't be able to get stars all the time from what I saw, good job!

Thank you for playing! I think I will add air friction to avoid the pendulum moving too fast, or do some calculation to detect collision in that cases. Thank you.

This is fun! It's simple, but that's a good thing. I think this could work well as a mobile game. Nice music too.

Just a suggestion! (if you wanted to expand it.) You could add objects that reduce the time or take away from the score to add to difficulty.

Thank you for playing! I will continue improving the game and will follow your suggestion! I will also publish an Android version soon (after the JAM ends). Thank you!
