Very polished, well made game. I included it in my Finally Finish Something Jam compilation video series, if you'd like to take a look. :)

@ava I'm one of the elite club. Besides, you're the only one who rated us, your even more elite.

@Bojan & Team Aviol: thanks for your comments, don't forget to submit your ratings! (it's a different button, annoying, I know)

I'm very bad with brain games, so cannot comment on the AI much (I couldn't pass after tutorials). But graphics and animations are great. Also, I like how the background is animated.

Great game. The graphics could be a little better, but it's ok. The game is pretty hard, but that's actually a good thing. Games like this are expected to be hard.

The mechanics of the game are solid and I enjoyed playing, but I did find it super difficult. I was expecting it to be the more traditional mechanic of jumping over another marble captures it. Probably I'm just not clever enough to get the tactics required.
I have to say it feels really polished, definitely a level of professionalism to everything about it. Even nice little touches like the background cubes reacting to your cursor. I appreciated that I could try all the dofferent levels whenever I wanted

I played and rated your game.

First everything I like :

  • The first couple of levels are a good way to learn the mechanics
  • I like the fact that you allow me to reset high scores :) I should do that as well in my game
  • The visual style is very nice, I love the 'rubbery' feel of the balls (that sounds so wrong)
I find the game very difficult though. Only managed to beat 5 levels, and that includes the tutorial levels.
As this was originally a way to learn about AI programming, I guess that's fine. But if this was a game aimed at real customers I'd find it a bit too unforgiving.
Congratulations on finally finishing something!
