Love the start screen, fun to play! the paddle could be thicker and the ball of a brighter color.

I find I kind of hilarious that your game is basically identical to this one, but has 200 reviews less. :D Circle pong is hardly anything new, but fits the theme well and you're implementation is solid, too. Really love the sound design. Felt a bit too fast though. consider starting slow and ramp up the tempo once the player scored a few points. Also I don't see any need for more than one life here.

Really good work, the retro style was great, after i get used with the controls i had fun with the game, nice job.

I like this game a lot. I kinda wish I could hit the ball while the paddle is moving. The paddle was also a little difficult to parse movement wise. But I'd definitely spend too much time playing this game if it played a little smoother.

My high score is 30! This is the best execution of this idea that I have seen so far in the jam. However, I don't think multiple lives are a good idea for a game like this. I think that your score should just be how long you are able to rally the ball. Otherwise, great game!

Good job! Loved it. Since it's such a simple (but elegant!) idea, you could have added much more juice to the game. But hey, this game jam cares about design and originality, which you nailed.

it's a veeery good idea, but the paddle should pop out more imo, i found it really hard to see.

I like your idea! I found it just too difficult to play

Really fun. Add some music and have each half of the screen move one way and you have a great mobile game. Awesome polish!!

Great game and fit the theme. Hard to see the paddle, but I guess can get used to it over time. Addicting to play, kept trying to out-best my last score.

Super hard, and has the Essence of Singularity we are looking for!

This is fun to play :) A bit of inertia on the paddle might be a nice addition.

This is pretty well made, I like this. Neat take on one paddle pong
Its concept is kinda similar to the game I made for this jam,
I mean the part with the partial circle for bouncing off of

Good game, GREAT title screen. It is a shame you couldn't finish any music though
