This is a lot of fun and I love how crazy it gets! The sounds are cool too, and I'd love to see some music in the future, and perhaps some balls with more powerups or something like that!

Developer

Thanks Oliver for the feedback.

Dang that got frantic quickly, those exponential ball drops felt so satisfying. Some more variety in ball types after the big ball would be a great touch. Nice work!

Developer

Thanks.  It used to speed up faster.  Hopefully I found a nice balance.  Hmm... a medium-sized red ball, maybe?

Pretty cute pinball game, with lots of fun frantic action once you start getting multiball. Wasn't sure what was derpy/surprising about it tho - aside from the balls going outside the walls? 

Developer

Thanks for the feedback.  The first surprise was the big ball, and then the walls eventually disappearing on you - so, two surprises!

Didn't expect to play a pinball game here, and the sudden addition of a new ball, haha you got me surprised there!

The only thing that I would like to change is making the gap between the paddle smaller. I lost a bunch of times, or maybe I'm just not good at pinball? :)

Game is pretty polished, game play is simple yet fun. Overall, great submission!

Developer

Thanks for the feedback.  As others have mentioned, the game can be difficult at times, but I hope I was generous enough in giving extra balls, to offset that difficulty.  As for losing a bunch of times, there were times in testing where I lost very early.  It's really all about getting to those extra balls, and having that safety net.

Woah that gets hectic pretty fast. Got to 4110 as my high score. Kinda lame how the balls can fall out the walls and that's how I ended up losing. The sound effects and visuals were pretty great. All the bumpers made it fun to just fling the balls all over the place.

Developer

Ha ha, yeah.  It gets wild!  As for the walls, I figured one surprise is nice, but how about more than one surprise?!?!  :P

Developer

Thanks.  Is it fun to have the walls disappear on you too? :P

Funny! I didn't get that the holes in the wall were dangerous, too.. :'(

Nice game! I love pinball but i'm terrible at it hahaa the graphics are great and the sounds are perfect. nice smooth controls and movement as well.

Developer

Thanks.  A lot of tweaking went into the sounds.

This game is really cool. My first 2 attempts went poorly but once I hit 1000 points it really ramped up. I like the gameplay and the sound effects were really good. My best score was 3390.

Developer(+1)

Thanks.  For 95% of development, it "ramped up" twice as fast, but it got be overwhelming.  It wasn't until the very end of development that I scaled back the ramp-up.  Actually, I ended up having to scale back a number of things in this - ramp-up speed, audio (including adding the mute button), the background animations.  It was seriously overwhelming at one point.  It's kind of surprising how many minor tweaks this project required.

It should save your highscore for you, hopefully.  Thanks for the report.
