At the first play of your game (by using only the keyboard) I was confused and thought this game is impossible to beat. Then I read the comment by Andrew and went back to the game and suddenly the game became great :D Maybe you should mention that the player need both keyboard and the mouse to play this game. I've also tried to play the game with only the mouse but it was kind of hard and not so enjoyable as with the keyboard and the mouse.

However, this game ist very nice in gameplay and presentation (especially the crowd feels good and is encouraging). Nice job!!

Thank you for your feedback !  Glad you could enjoy it ! You weren't supposed to use the keyboard controls at all, it was something I forgot to remove when building the .exe. The mouse controls are a bit hard too, but you get the hand of it pretty quickly thogh, as long as you're patient :)

At first I was using keyboard to control the ballerina and was confused about why I fail so miserably. But then I've tried using mouse and aha! This game is so hilarious, I've giggled like crazy :D

Perhaps you should consider disabling keyboard control whatsoever and making the ballerina follow mouse cursor. Or vice versa, just add a keybinding for dragging/releasing the ballerina.

Anyway, nice work, loved the gameplay and classy visual style!

Thanks for your feedback! In fact, the keyboard controls were a little script I used to test collisions and ensure the ballerinas bounced back and died correctly. I just forgot to remove itfrom the final build, I will reupload it.

I really like your interpretation of the theme, the game is really funny and it's really nice to hear the other ballerinas fall.

I'm pretty bad at this game, but I was still happy to make some big knockouts.

Good work !

PS: I like this Midna's lewd picture of yours ;)

Developer(+1)

Ah, I see you have some taste in lewdness as well ;)

i really like the ballerina theme and mechanic.I think it would have been a better design choice to not let the player progress when they fail as it becomes too easy and it gives the player no incentive to score as much as they can.

Hey there, thanks for your feedback ! Yes, I didn't really think about it, at the time I programmed this part I was more focused to testing the mechanics and the different levels to see if everything worked. But eh, lack of time, as always :)

The mac version doesn't work.

Hey there, sorry if the Mac or Linuw versions don't work, I don't have anything to test them. If you have a Newgrounds account, you can play them on the link I provided in the description of the game.
