The gameplay was very entertaining, especially when you manage to aim back the ball to destroy an incoming ball.

A possible suggestion to make the game even more enjoyable would be to have the balls cast at you from an enemy that moves, forcing you to aim at the enemy to kill it and giving you extra points for faster kills.

Developer

Thank you for the suggestions! At some point I did have a few ideas for more kinds of enemies, including enemies that would fire more balls. But alas, my time to work on this game was limited.

Seems to work well in the browser. Tested with Chrome 70.0. I dig the tune and the upgrades ideas is cool. I wish there were more projectile variations (ships, different balls, etc.)

Developer

Thank you, and I'm glad to know that you enjoyed the tunes of my own making. Additional enemy types were  in my mind (including other balls), but alas, these were the ones I could conceive with the time I had.

Hey, this looks fun, especially the progression system, but It's not working properly in the browser (balls are going through the paddle) and the download file is giving me an error. Just a heads up!

Developer (1 edit)

Thank you for the feedback. The balls going through the paddle part is a known issue, but it's really hard to address them when they only happen on the web version. I would also like to know what errors are happening with the downloaded version (do you mean the Windows version?).

Update: I released the Windows binaries, so they ought to work now: https://e-net4.itch.io/pkay/devlog/58632/new-windows-binaries

Satisfying progression, and stable. Would love to see more visual variety. Awesome work!
